Carnival on nevsky 2009: part 2

Part 1 of the post is here

A group of elegantly dressed dancers. Each one of them was well versed in their skills despite their age.

Age was no barrier for enjoyment, as proved by the devil .(I am not sure if she wears Prada, though)

Happy hour :)

The "Peterburgsti" were all dressed up in their funky carnival clothes. Nevsky street had more shades of colors than the Hermitage State Museum !

.....The main concert in Palace square.

A group of ghosts entertaining the mob.

A lost traveller looking for his wife. :D He looked happy and was in no hurry to find her.A marvellous act full of emotions, story and balance. The performers were just supported by those flexible sticks.
A nice way of interaction with the audience. Now, this is what I call "live" concert!

The artists were great , so was the decoration. But the heart of this ceremony were the People of St. Petersburg. Peterburgski surely know how to enjoy even in the face of the present crisis. And why shouldn't they, after all they are the citizens of Russia - The land of Possibility.


  1. I noticed it has been a month since your last post...have missed you...but know how busy you must be...hope your studies are going well...enjoyed the celebration scenes...especially the performers on the flexible sticks...

  2. @ Wanda: Hey, its so nice to hear from people who care. Thank you for your comment. Hope you are doing great. I must confess I have missed writing and reading all you guys, but I am afraid I shall have to go back into hibernation for some more time till my exams are done. I promise to be back though. The performers on the flexible sticks were artists from UK. It was indeed a great act. :)
