The Scene Ballerina's nude shoot went tutu far: company

  • Print

VIENNA, Austria -- The management of the Vienna State Opera and its ballet company says it has fired a ballerina for posing in the nude after she was warned not to do it again.

The management of the prestigious institutions says solo dancer Karina Sarkissova was axed Aug. 23 after a series of provocative photos of her appeared in the September issue of the Austrian men's fashion and lifestyle magazine Wiener.

A statement Friday said she had already been reprimanded in May for nude shots that were taken in the opera house without permission and published in the June edition of Penthouse.
