A Night At The Opera, In a Bishkek Supermarket


A typical evening's shopping at Bishkek's Frunze supermarket in early December suddenly turned into a cultural event with the appearance of an opera flash mob. People who seemed to be average shoppers and store employees suddenly burst into song, regaling store patrons with a piece from Verdi's opera, La Traviata. The singers, from the Kyrgyz National Conservatory, were advertising an upcoming free concert.
