Tsaritsino in autumn

This year the day of History of Tsaritsino and the last day of summer park season in Moscow coincided together. Warm and sunny, it was a perfect day for outdoor activities. There was all day long concert program on the main lawn: baroque music and jazz played by Russian quartet of saxophonists, the hits of Sting and Led Zeppelin played by Arfasound.

The open-space program also included a performance From Life Of Pineapples by Venera Kazarova and Marie-Antoinette by Sasha Frolova. Sasha learnt a lot from Andrey Bartenev, a painter, a graphic artist and a creator of many sculpture presentations. Sasha Frolova introduced her recognizable collection of inflatable fashion pieces in France. She staged an ode to Marie Antuanette inside Etretat Gardens, that made her known abroad as a performer of crafting synthetic experience. Enjoy her sculptures dancing!

The guided tour around the parks of Tsaritsino would have enlarged your knowledge of landscape design. You could  also visit the greenhouse exhibition of White flowers: Amazon lilies and Chinese roses blooming. The halls of the Big Palace were open for public. That day you could hear the stories about the creation of Tsaritsino as a summer residence of Catherine the Great, her dreams and plans about the place, her contradictory relationship with the architect Vasiliy Bazhenov.
