Prince of opera smiles at king of pop
To be exact, both world-famous singers are now commemorated in the same place.
After news of the king of pop’s death arrived, his numerous Russian fans gathered to make impromptu displays in honor of Jackson. The one in Moscow was initially placed near the US Consulate, but was later moved a few dozen meters to a small square.
The place, however, is already occupied by a monument to the Russian opera singer, whose museum is located just down the road.
Now the bronze figure there appears as though he is looking favorably at dozens of Jackson photos, flowers, notes and balloons.
