Kremlin Ballet to Perform in Moscow's Iconic Metro

The Kremlin Ballet company is set to perform in the Moscow metro system as part of a special event to celebrate the 2017 Confederations Cup.

The company will perform scenes from "Swan Lake," "The Nutcracker" and "Don Quixote" at the Novoslobodskaya station on the evening of June 25.

"Thousands of fans from all over the world have come to Moscow for the Confederations Cup,” a Moscow Metro spokesperson told Russia's Interfax news agency. “We're holding this unique event because we want them to have great memories of visiting our country.”

The Confederations Cup began on June 17 and will continue until July 2. It is the first time that the football tournament has been held in Russia.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
