             THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING
 
Imagine the uproar if a launch filled with nine Russian sailors landed in our Marina and asked for help with their submarine, aground off of our inlet. Just such a scenario was played out [off of Gloucester Island, Cape Ann, Massachusetts]
in the movie starring Alan Arkin, Carl Reiner, Jonathan Winters and Eva Marie Saint. Released in the heart of the cold war in 1966, the comedy had a happy ending with the townsfolk bonding with the Russian sailors after they formed a human pyramid to rescue a boy hung up on a church steeple. The movie had a
huge impact in both Washington and Moscow and won a Golden Globe for Arkin.
 
Actually, the Russians are coming to the Landings, just five, not nine, on Thursday,
April 13 at 5:30 pm in the Main Deck. These five Russians, all of whom are great composers lived, not in 1966, but in 1866. One of them, Nikoli- Rimsky Korsakov was an officer in the Imperial Russian navy and wrote part of his first symphony
while sailing around the world for  two years and eight months. Another, Aleksandr Borodin had a Ph.D. in chemistry and was renowned for his work on aldehydes. The other three, Balikirev, a Mathematician, Mussorgsky, an officer of the Russian Imperial Guard and Cui a military engineer, all had day jobs and did their composing in their off-time.
The event ”The Five Russians” will tell their stories, accompanied by their music and fine food and wine with professional musicians from the Southwest Florida Symphony orchestra in the Main Deck on April 13th, the Thursday before Easter.
