GOVERNMENT To participants and guests of
OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION the “Russian Nights” Festival
On behalf of the Government of the Russian Federation
and my own I would like to extend my
greetings to all participants and guests of the “Russian Nights” Festival which
is a remarkable celebration of Russian Culture and Arts.
This is the
first Russian cultural event of such a large scale to be held in the Republic of Korea. I am confident that the Festival
will not only enrich Russian-Korean cultural ties, but will promote the whole range
of the relations between our countries.
In Seoul the Festival will
present the best examples of the Russian theater, music and cinema arts. The
program of the Festival includes performances of the Moscow Symphonic
Orchestra, “Helicon-Opera” Musical Theater, “The Flowers” and many other
well-known Russian artistic groups.
thank the organizers of the Festival – the Stas Namin Center
and the “SBS Productions” of South
Korea who made it possible to conduct these
festivities of Russian art on the South Korean soil.
I wish the
participants of the “Russian Nights” Festival to successfully perform before the
sophisticated South Korean audience and the South Korean friends to enjoy their
meeting with Russian art.
CHAIRMAN OF THE GOVERNMENT
OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION Mikhail FRADKOV
