Just in: Bolshoi hosts Edward Snowden’s first public outingmain
The US whistleblower, granted an extra year’s asylum in Moscow, celebrated with a visit to the opera – The Tsar’s Bride, at the Bolshoi.
He passed mostly unnoticed, having shed his spectacles and worn a dark jacket.
Snowden betrayed classified US information in protest at US surveillance of citizens. In Russia, everyone knows, there is no such surveillance.
