Lilian Hochhauser becomes a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Over sixty years, in partnership with her husband Victor Hochhauser, she has been a partner of the Bolshoi, organizing guest tours of the theatre’s ballet company. The first guest tour in Britain – indeed the very first large-scale foreign guest tour of the Bolshoi Ballet took place in London in 1956. It was a triumph for all. The company acquired world famous and established itself as the Bolshoi Ballet, the tour became legendary and marked the beginning of a beautiful friendship between the theatre and the Hokhausers.

Ряд волшебных изменений...
We are now fortunately familiar with Katie Mitchell: last season the Aix-en-Provence Opera Festival presented her two acclaimed productions on the New Stage of the Bolshoi - Written on Skin and Trauernacht. The new opera by British composer George Benjamin and the stage performance of J.S. Bach cantatas made a deep impression on public and received particular praise from the press. But that was just the beginning; the main objective was to include Mitchell’s staging in the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre! And we succeeded: in cooperation with Aix-en-Provence we'll show the baroque opera Alcina in modern outfit! The premiere series of the performance will be held on 18, 20, 22, 24 and 26 October.

Чисто английский путеводитель и чисто французский карнавал
The first premiere of the 242 season was a theatrical concert, which combines two remarkable works - The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten and Le carnaval des animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns. Probably, the definition of the genre seems to be too official, though it reveals a very unusual but, for sure, absolutely fascinating idea.
The second run: October 19 & 21.
