Bolshoi soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko listens in a courtroom in Moscow, Russia, Thursday, March 7, 2013. The star dancer accused of masterminding the attack on the Bolshoi ballet chief acknowledged Thursday that he gave the go-ahead for the attack, but said he did not order anyone to throw acid on the artistic director's face. Dmitrichenko told a Moscow court that he had complained about ballet chief Sergei Filin to an acquaintance, who offered to "beat him up."
