Rus in Urbe

While I was in Rome, the Patriarch of Moscow very kindly treated the Holy Father to an evening of music. Strangely, I didn't get an invitation, but I spoke to someone who was there, and said that the evening was wonderful.
My post is shameless, I'm afraid: I thought some time ago of the pun rus in urbe, and I have been longing for a chance to try it out!

Surely not the Patriarch but Metropolitan Hilarion?

Indeed, but still a rus.
The patriarch footed the bill.

Excellent pun Sean! Do you know what music was played, and by which orchestra?
