We made a reservation to attend a Folkloric Spectacle in St. Petersburg because the reviews were really good. The performance was kind of so-so, but the theater was something else:
There’s that beautiful color again with the white trim. I knew we couldn’t take photos of the performance, so I had only my iPhone. I’m happy the colors are true to life.
And this is one of their lesser theaters!
I managed to take this shot when the performance was ending. No flash, so the quality is poor, but you get the idea. Lots of singing and dancing.
What’s really cool is that we came outside afterwards and saw this across the street:
This was taken at exactly 10:07 p.m. and that is sunlight in the upper corner. These are the White Nights Russia is famous for. So strange and wonderful to be in sunlight that late at night. Sunset was at 11:15. Loved that.
Great weekend, everyone! My office is getting painted tomorrow and the blog design is coming along, slowly but surely.
