    That display on the outside of the building, how tricky is that.

    I have heard of the Bolshoi ballet and theater since I was a child, it is more than famous.

    I am still accused of being a child.

    Nice restoration. Far as the light show and the fire show – why? Just takes away from a beautiful building.

    That is a beautiful place. It took many artisans and a very long time to restore it. GOOD JOB!
    I remember as a child in 1962 (I think) watching the Bolshoi Ballet Company perform on the Ed Sullivan TV show. That was an extraordinary occurrence because it was not but a year or so after the Cuban Missile Crisis. That was a big deal at the height of the Soviet Union/USA Cold war. I am glad peace prevailed 30 years later. My Mother, God rest her soul, liked ballet and insisted I watch it with her. I am happy that I did, she talked about it all the next day.
