I am glad to welcome you and congratulate you on the opening of the exhibition THEATRE - MUSIC - FINE ART. This remarkable project aims to introduce the British public to the names of outstanding Russian figures, who not only enriched the national Treasury with their works, but also made a significant contribution to the development of World Theater, Choreography and Classical Music.
The exhibition will also show guests the facets and brilliant examples of achievements of modern culture in Russia. I am convinced that the exhibition will serve to bring the two countries closer together and will become a real holiday for our British friends.
