Ian and I are enjoying the sight of RNO Festival banners over the streets of central Moscow and hanging at the entrance of the Bolshoi Theatre!
Yesterday, prior to the official opening concert of the Festival, Maestro Pletnev was interviewed on the main culture channel. They showed footage of the RNO’s rehearsal from the September 6th open-air concert at the Kremlin, celebrating the City of Moscow’s 862nd birthday. World-renowned soprano Anna Netrebko was one of the stars of Great Voices in the Kremlin. The concert attracted thousands of classical music fans to Cathedral Square under a full moon.
