* Sjeng Scheijen 

Muziek, poëzie en kunst zijn van alle tijden en de culturele banden blijven een beproefde brug tussen West en Oost. Sjeng Scheijen, slavist, kunsthistoricus en schrijver, vertelt over de toekomst van de culturele banden, die standhouden, ook wanneer andere verbintenissen onder druk staan. Het genieten van een mooie opera gedirigeerd door Gergiev, van het prachtige Bolsjoi Theater - ballet blijven wij delen, ook in 2016!

Sjeng Scheijen (1972) doet aan de Universiteit van Leiden onderzoek naar de Russische avant-garde en is directielid van de Khardzhiev Foundation. Van 2008-10 was hij cultureel attaché aan de Nederlandse ambassade in Moskou en in 2013 medeorganisator van het Russisch-Nederlands vriendschapsjaar. Zijn boek over Sergei Diaghilev werd niet alleen in Nederland zeer goed ontvangen.
