Soviet ‘purim Spiels’ in Israel

Israelis are benefiting from glasnost, the new policy of openness and free expression in the Soviet Union.

As a direct result, two world-famous Soviet troupes will be performing here during the Purim festival Sunday and Monday.

The Bolshoi is staging ballet-on-ice at the new Ramat Gan ice rink. The Leningrad Circus will appear at the Tel Aviv Cinerama.
