Which is how I ended up at a sweet gala show in the Bishkek Philharmonic building.
To be honest, I had no idea which songs were Kyrgyz and which were other Central Asian languages. The Italian opera numbers were clearly neither.

See, experiences like these are the joys of being settled in one place for a while!
