With little snow to speak of so far, this winter has seemed mild by Moscow standards. So to make Muscovites feel more at home, the capital city has opened its first ever ice theatre on Revolution Square. It comes as a part of the city’s Russian Winter fes
The show’s central sculpture is teremok, a small fairy tale-style Russian house. This house, which is four meters tall, will host ice-cold, yet cute, animal inhabitants who will come alive several times daily in animated performances.
According to the fairy tale, teremok collapses at the end – but the ice theatre version won’t be so faithful to the original. That is, as long as temperatures in the city stay below freezing. And if they do, teremok will welcome visitors through January 19.
For those who are out of ideas for New Year’s and Christmas presents, Central Moscow will also host a Christmas fair, with craftsmen from across Russia selling their creative ideas for gifts and holiday decorations.
THE COMMENT FINE PRINT - IN DEFENSE AGAINST MENTAL MIDGETS:Why do you not respond to my comment? Why is my comment gone? Why are you mean? Why do I hate you for erasing my comment? Why do you hate me for my comment? Why is cussing not allowed (Sometimes you do it - sorta!), when it helps me express my feelings? Why are you a #$&%@#? Why is it wrong to wish you dead? Why do you love Russia? Why are you stupid? Why are you unpatriotic? Why is, why is, why is and why is? My GOD man, Why are you worse than a communist?
The above manifestations of a horde of mental midgets is why I only respond to comments that have signed up to be a user of the blog! (Top right of website is link!) Anyone can comment and anyone can be erased after they comment, but only someone who takes the time to sign up gets a second look from me at the comment. Sorry: I have to draw the line somewhere and when you get thousands of spam, hate and death threat comments a day, then all you do is look at spam, hate and death threats, then I never get anything else done. If you comment after signing in, then I will get a message that someone has tried to post a real comment?
Thanks for understanding and even if you don't understand, thanks anyway...
Another day in the life of Windows to Russia...
