Fan-IDs also granted World Cup attendees free access to public transport services, including buses, and train service between host cities.

In response to the March poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal , British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that no British ministers or members of the royal family would attend the World Cup, and issued a warning to any travelling England fans. The British Foreign Office and MPs had repeatedly warned English football fans and "people of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent" travelling to Russia of "racist or homophobic intimidation, hooligan violence and anti-British hostility".
At the close of the World Cup Russia was widely praised for its success in hosting the tournament, with Steve Rosenberg of the BBC deeming it "a resounding public relations success" for Putin, adding, "The stunning new stadiums, free train travel to venues and the absence of crowd violence has impressed visiting supporters. Russia has come across as friendly and hospitable: All the foreign fans I have spoken to are pleasantly surprised.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino stated, "Everyone discovered a beautiful country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true. A lot of preconceived ideas have been changed because people have seen the true nature of Russia. These broadcasts were made available from selected rightsholders and television providers.

On 12 July , FIFA stated that it had "engaged counsel to take legal action in Saudi Arabia and is working alongside other sports rights owners that have also been affected to protect its interests. The elimination of the United States in qualifying led to concerns that US interest and viewership of this World Cup would be reduced especially among "casual" viewers interested in the U.
During a launch event prior to the elimination, Fox stated that it had planned to place a secondary focus on the Mexican team in its coverage to take advantage of their popularity among US viewers factoring Hispanic and Latino Americans.

Bertoni's Orfeo was originally performed by Guadagni, Gluck's original Orfeo, on his retirement from the stage. I just listened to Bertoni's Orfeo for the first time and highly recommend it to anyone familiar with Gluck's Orfeo.
There are numerous references to Gluck's work, both in the music and in the sequence of musical themes, but with many surprising developments and resolutions. This is quite a pleasant surprise.

From the liner note by Julien Dubrugque: Here the ports de voix or appoggiature are long and not short; the harpsichord plays only when Rameau has indicated this with a figured bass in the score, this being when there are soloists to accompany instead of tinkling away continuously and industriously. In Rameau, the basso continuo is as a rule absent from choruses and purely instrumental sections. Guy Van Waas has not allowed himself to add various folk percussion instruments to each dance.

Alan Curtis's recording of the Vivaldi setting is the best recent Vivaldi opera recording. Note that Pompey's widow is named Emilia and has no son in Metastasio's libretto, whereas she is named Cornelia and is the mother of Sesto Pompeo in Bussani's libretto to Guilio Cesare in Egitto.
