The Paris Opera refused to cooperate with ballet dancer Sergei Polunin because of his statements, which do not correspond to the values of the opera.
Paris Opera will no longer work with Ukrainian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin, who has taken Russian citizenship. About this January 14 reported Twitter Opera.

It is planned that Polunins will participate in the production of "Swan Lake" in February.
The Paris opera did not indicate what statements Polunin was talking about.
The British Telegraph claims that dissatisfaction with the Paris Opera was caused by Polunina's positions on homosexuality and obesity. In particular, he pointed out that the reason for completeness is laziness. He later deleted the record.
"Man is a man and a woman must be a woman. The energy of men and women creates balance. That is why you have eggs," Polynin wrote about homosexuality on December 29, 2018.
