Auditorium Theatre’s new Bolshoi connection
October 30th, 2016
When Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, the newly named CEO of Auditorium Theatre, told a group of arts supporters last week how deeply connected she is to the dance world, she meant it.
She’s married to Alexei Moskalenko, a former dancer with the famed Bolshoi Ballet.
The two moved to Chicago recently from Indiana, where she headed a performing arts center and he taught ballet. He’s expected to continue that in Chicago.
Castroverde Moskalenko spoke about her goal that the theater reflects Chicago’s cultural make-up.
“It’s a diverse city and our stage needs to reflect the diversity of our community,” she said.
