Just saw on the news here that there has been a blaze at the Mariinski warehouse for scenery and costumes. The entire building was in flames and it could be assumed that nothing could be saved. I do pity the company, they are really struggling economically now - how about insurance in a country like that - another
nail in the coffin of a wonderful company. Hope it will be sorted out somehow and some generous nation will help. Wouldnt be surprised if it was arson.

Thanks, Pamela. We had an earlier report on this that's posted in the Kirov forum. I'm going to close this thread, so we don't have two discussions going on.
