Rippling wheat and poppies swaying to the rhythm of a summer waltz evoke a Russian landscape. A phenomenal nocturnal sabbath enthralls us, as the deeds of the most famous rebellious slave and sinuous oriental melodies overwhelm us.
In case of rain the concert will be rescheduled on Saturday 31 July at the same time.
