We were leaving the Hermitage one cold afternoon, when we noticed a crowd gathered in an area of the parking lot. There was music and I was immediately drawn to it. It was one of the most fabulous events I've seen anywhere although I don't speak a word of Russian. Sadly, I don't know the names of the performers but I do know they were top of the heap professionals. They were expecting some dignitaries to arrive and they did late in the video. While I don't know for sure, I believe they were from Italy. Some of the songs you will recognize as hits from Broadway though they are sung in Russian. The entertainers were absolutely tops.
