Dedicate 9/23 Opening Gala to support of LGTB people.

Tchaikovsky is the most important Russian composer whose works are widely played and widely admired. HIs sufferings as a homosexual in czarist Russia are as nothing compared to the sufferings of LBGTQ people under the punitive laws of Putin. Your leading star Ms. Netrebko and your leading guest conductor Mr. Gergiev support these laws. The least you can do is to dedicate the opening performance of your 2014-2015 season in support of the LBGTQ people who populate your audience, run your theater and work as stage hands and publicists.
