St Petersburg 2 – 24 May 2012

Today is my big day at the Hermitage

The buildings opposite my hotel.



The Hermitage – maginificent! Never seen anything like it!

Spend 5 hours there! About 1000 photos

I’ll let my selection of photos here do the talking!



A Night at the Opera. The Mariinsky Concert Hall again for The Magic Flute by Mozart.

Here is the overture.


Some images at the booking office and at the concert hall.

Notwithstanding that the story is very complicated and is sung in Russian, it is an exellent performance which is very enjoyable. The performers move around the audience, drawing us in to the action.



After the opera which ended at 10:30 pm
