For the Opera Lover
One of the oldest ballet and opera companies in the world, the Bolshoi, is a masterpiece. Devoted to Russia’s famous composers like Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky, the Bolshoi has established an impressive repertoire of Russian productions. Each year, two to four new ballets or operas are added – but around 70% of the productions are still from Russian composers. Even if you are not an opera lover, the grandeur of the Bolshoi will change your mind before the performers take the stage. With its classical Russian architecture, the Bolshoi transports you into another world. The building’s ruby silk walls, intricate carpets and gold-leafed architectural elements resemble the craftsmanship of the productions showcased onstage. Located across form the Kremlin, the Bolshoi proudly displays the heritage of Russian composers every night. Tickets are available both online and for a slightly lower price at the theatre box office.
