This is so wonderful to hear! Sergei Filin made his first appearance on stage following the acid attack after a performance of Jewels last night:

"His reunion with his dancers backstage at The Royal Opera House where the company has been performing for the past two and a half weeks was deeply emotional. Many were near tears.

Though he had originally intended to come to London ‘incognito’, he also emerged on stage at the end of Monday’s performance of Jewels to rapturous applause. Wearing dark glasses he was led out on stage by two of his protégées, Olga Smirnova and Semyon Chudin, who had just performed the final section of the Balanchine ballet.

He bowed both to the audience and then, deeply, to the company.”
