 Thanks to the RWF Official Carrier, BMI, which transported on their Moscow-London route the acts of 2008 – on 13th January, London experienced a new and refreshing line-up of Russia’s stage prowess, carefully selected from a quite remarkable talent pool. Seeking to unite the young with the old; the future with the past; the east with the west, the Russian Winter Festival looked far a field for the creative spirit it brought to London. It held open arms to the varieties of culture, language and style to be found within the vast land mass of the Russian Federation, sure in the conviction that they would enthrall the London audience with their diversity of spirit and expression, just as their predecessors had done in the last three years.
