Russian mini-tour

This October Cecilia is giving two very different concerts in two diverse Russian capitals. This time (in contrast to 2008 when her concert was only for the select few) anyone can buy a ticket.

October 26, 2011 — Moscow, the capital of Russia
The first is «Sacrificium» with orchestra La Scintilla in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.
The prices vary from 35 to 375 euro.

October 28, 2011 — Kazán', the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan
The second is «Soirée Rossinienne» with Sergio Ciomei in the Great State Concert Hall named after Salix Säydäş.
The prices vary from 50 to 100 euro.

It is a very good decision to come to Russia next month since it is the year of cultural exchange between Russia and Italy.
