Why was director of Bolshoi Ballet attacked with acid?
A masked man threw acid in the face of Sergei Filin, who has been the director of Russia’s legendary Bolshoi Ballet company since 2011, last Thursday night, leaving Filin with third-degree burns to his face. Bolshoi insiders say jealousy over roles could be a factor in the attack. NBC’s Michelle Kosinski reports.
