Gay Rights Activists To Picket Valery Gergiev Concerts In London
"The demonstration is scheduled to take place outside the Barbican, where Gergiev will lead the London Symphony Orchestra in a performance of The Damnation of Faust
by Berlioz - about a scholar who gets too close to the devil." Picketers are objecting to Russia's new anti-gay laws and Gergiev's failure to speak out against them to his longtime friend Vladimir Putin.
