RAW: Concert in metro to celebrate Moscow Metro’s 81st birthday

Moscow’s ‘Kropotkinskaya’ metro station transformed into an opera hall in the early hours of Saturday, as the Bolshoi Theater’s best musicians performed a unique night time concert alongside Danish performers in front of hundreds of Muscovites.

The Bolshoi’s Presidential Orchestra and its leading singers, as well as opera singers from the Royal Danish Theatre performed ‘Cavalleria rusticana’ by Pietro Mascagni among other classical pieces.

Around 700 guests attended the concert, which was organised as part of celebrations of the Moscow Metro’s 81st anniversary which is due to be marked on Sunday.
