SPAC preps for Bolshoi Ballet
SARATOGA SPRINGS At the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, they're getting ready for a performance of the Bolshoi - Russian ballet, but some people plan to picket that performance.
Some of the Capital District's Ukrainian population say they want to remind people of their disgust with what the Russian government has done in Ukraine in the last year or so, from pressuring the former president to steer away from the European union to whatever involvement it might have had in shooting down a plane over Eastern Ukraine.
SPACs president is looking forward to what she says is a spectacular performance that should transcend politics and bring people together.
The group of picketers says it does not mean to denigrate the performers nor Russian culture, but they also consider the dance troupe to be Vladimir Putin's goodwill ambassadors who should be challenged.
