Singapore Po-Russki

It was once a Malaysian seaside village. At the beginning of the 19th century British Lieutenant General Thomas Stamford Raffles turned it into a port that eventually became a centre for the India-China trade and the entrepot trade of Southeast Asia. Following independence in 1965 Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew led Singapore to prosperity, having combined European capitalism with Confucianist principles of governance.

Modern-day Singapore is the product of tradition and pragmatism. In the land of colonial houses and orchids, everything is done according to feng shui; for this reason ultramodern skyscrapers eschew sharp edges and numerous fountains and swimming pools are inscribed in circles. It is a paradise for travelers, shoppers and gourmets.

In October, Moscow will have a taste of the wonders of Singapore. The Festivals highlight will be a joint Russian-Singapore project: a concert Between the Angel and the Lion. It will be opened by the Singapore Indian Orchestra and Choir conducted by Lilitha Vaidyanathan, performing with Tatyana Grindenkos Ensemble Opus Posth. After that Vladimir Governors Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Chamber Choir will for the first time present the geopolitical utopian piece SINGAPORE. About Different Lands and People in which modern composer Vladimir Martynov speaks about his impressions of the island-state.

Other important events of the Singapore po-russki project are the formal opening of Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, managed by Singaporean company Raffles International, the launching of the first Singapore guidebook in Russian, and a visit of Lee Kuan Yew who will present his book From Third World to First: The Singapore Story.

At Ararat Park Hyatt gourmets can experience for themselves the diversity of Singaporean fusion cuisine. And dont forget about those exotic desserts!
