Why would Rosoboronexport separate place at the Bolshoi theatre

On Monday, all the media gladly relished the news, peeped on page procurement that our Rosoboronexport paid about 13 million for subscription of six lodges in the Grand theatre. In General, the practice of subscription boxes — a hundred years in the afternoon. But everyone here was outraged by the extent of officials. Why?

Bed stalls.

Thus, the organization acquires at the Bolshoi theatre season ticket for the use of a six-person Lodge (this Lodge baignoire left side of the number four) for the period from 1 September 2016 to 31 July 2017, i.e. for the whole next season.

We consulted an expert on ticketing and cash issues closely affiliated with and knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of the Bolshoi theater ticket. Clearly, his name is not disclosed.

— It is strange that it was some kind of news, ” says the informant “MK”, probably just because Rosoboronexport — the state office and all carefully watching their spending. Subscription boxes — the age-old practice, very common in Europe, so we have, in the Bolshoi theater since the post-perestroika time. It was the same bed Visconti at La Scala; and we have one known oligarch already two lodges in the Big shot; now one of well-known foreign auditing company abanire box. A major oil company and does not Lodge some sort of withdraw, but a theater can redeem on the day.

— Yes, but here we are talking about the state of the organization And what the organization aboiut the Lodge?

— It is clear that this is done to invite partners and guests to negotiate. Moreover, these boxes are often empty, but standing near them, the staff is still not allowed anybody there.

— What about pricing?

Ten million rubles a year one bed means, when the theater just opened after reconstruction. Now of course, prices have risen. I think now it’s fifteen million. And, as a rule, make use of box stalls (they are on the ground level, there the buffets, convenient inputs), except the first and the second lies on the left side, adjacent to the stage, “Stalin’s box.” Why: at the time of visit of high government officials, these boxes are used for protection. They don’t even sell. Also not sold by one of the lodges stalls on the right side — there are teachers of the Bolshoi theatre or the premiere, which should be the occupation to see the show. In addition to baignoire ebonyrose well as lodges on the first floor of No. 12 and 14 (in particular the regional government structures).

Perhaps, in the words of our interlocutor, is a reason. The desire of our officials to throw dust in the eyes can not, sorry for the tautology, do not cut the eye. But why? Especially now, in the era of infinite crisis. After all, the weapon partners is important, not the chandeliers, the Lodge and the beautiful voices of Opera divas, and the terms of contracts. And, by God, it would be possible to find and cheaper. At least in order not to irritate the respectable public, where bed stalls can only dream of. After all, nothing but chaos is mindless investing public funds can not be named.
