In the announcements section of the Mariinsky's official website:
"2nd - 11th November Fourth International Competition for Singers named Rimsky Korsakov"
Mel, what's the name for this sort of mistake? I notice you're good at these things. In German it's called a stilbluete, but I can't think of the English word for it.
The Russians seem to have a talent for this kind of thing. I know of a Russian bar notice which read:
"Women are not allowed to have children inside the bar"
I didn't see it myself, though.
