65th Anniversary

I was invited to attend the 65th Anniversary celebration for Energia (the rocket corporation that is responsible for the Russian Space Program). It was pretty interesting. They rented out a hockey arena and had a bunch of former cosmonauts and famous Russian singers come in and perform.

Complete with military band playing such patriotic Soviet classics as 1812 Overture and "Tale as Old as Time" from Disney's Beauty and the Beast...?..

Talking with some of my Russian friends they said the event was just like the former Soviet era celebrations with the famous singers and the patriotic songs. There lots of speachs and poems and dancing, quite a display.
