Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport will be temporarily transformed
into a concert hall this Saturday when an orchestra performs
the overture to Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro. The
Perm Tchaikovsky Orchestra of Theatre, Opera and Ballet will
play the famous piece at Sheremetyevo's terminal D as part
of culture festival The Golden Mask in the City, which is
20 years old this year.
Taking place in Moscow each spring, the festival, which is
part of the Golden Mask awards, showcases the most interesting
cultural events from the previous season across Russia. The
Perm orchestra's version of Mozart's celebrated opera was
nominated for six Golden Mask awards, including best opera,
best director and best male performance.
The Golden Mask in the City festival will also see central
Moscow department store Tsvetnoy play host to an interactive
installation on Friday, entitled Sentimental Code, based on
a motif from the play Temporary Storage Square 48x9 (Kvadrat
vremennogo khraneniya 48x9) from Kinetik, a Moscow contemporary
dance theatre, also a nominee for a Golden Mask award. Sentimental
Code can be seen from 21 to 25 March.
