ALL TICKETS SOLD -
The Two Faces of Russia

14/11/2014 Lecturer – Rosamund Bartlett All Tickets Sold _________________________________________________________________________ Like the imperial emblem of the double-headed eagle, Russia’s two capitals look in different directions – Moscow towards Asia, St Petersburg towards Europe.

These lectures will explore Russia’s divided soul, split between the Western-looking metropolis of St Petersburg and the ancient and oriental city of Moscow, in order to celebrate the glory of Russia’s artistic heritage during the time of the Tsars, which reached its finest flowering on the eve of 1917.
