I saw some opera in russky once. Can't remember which one, but one of the big ones.

I also saw Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in russky. The lead Brick was a big fat old famous Russian actor whose name i forget. Think Little Steven crossed with ... I can never remember actors' names... Some old fat guy who's way past his prime but was considered sexy 40 years ago. It actually wasn't horrible, but it was weird. The set was fifties Americana,, including i think the tail end of a Thunderbird or '57 Chevy, but the actors played it like they were in a Moscow apartment in the eighties, which it was. And of course it was in russky.

Talking of trumpets, I was in the pub with my friend Johnny many years ago, and he was looking for someone to play trumpet on the song he was working on. This musician came into the pub for a drink - obviously after playing a show - and Johnny asked him if he's do it, which he did. Turned out he'd played the trumpet on the James Bond Goldfinger soundtrack. That was a pretty cool pedigree.
