The Bolshoi Theatre is again to produce the most caustic and paradoxical of Rimsky-Korsakov’s operas, the most “unfairytale-like” of all his tales, the tale about the golden cockerel.

A memorial plaque, dedicated to the remarkable Russian choreographer, Merited Artist of the Imperial Theatres, Alexander Gorsky (1871-1924) who, for well nigh quarter of a century (1902-1924) headed the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet Company and made a huge contribution to the formation of the Moscow style of Russian classical ballet, returned to its rightful place on the house — No 4/2 Bolshaya Dmitrovka Street (today the Bolshoi Theatre New Stage) — where the choreographer lived at the beginning of the last century.

press release

Under the umbrella of the Year of Italy in Russia and of the international cooperation between Dresden and Moscow, the semi-finals and final of the Competizione dell’opera, the international competition for singers of Italian opera, will take place at the Bolshoi Theatre. It is the first time that this competition, which up to now has always been held in Germany, will take place in Russia.

The program of the tour includes several performances of Eugene Onegin and a symphony concert.


The Bolshoi Theatre and CielEcran are going to broadcast live performance in real time of Bolshoi Ballet production of Coppelia in over 300 cinemas in 22 countries. (Beginning at 5 p.m. Paris time.) The leading parts will be taken by Natalia Osipova and Vyacheslav Lopatin. For a complete list of the cinemas consult the www.cielecran.com site.


The Benois de la Danse Prize will be awarded for the nineteenth time to the most outstanding members of the world dance community for the works they created in the year 2010.


The tour venue is the Palais Garnier.

Italian Maestro
Ottavio Marino is to give his first performance with the Bolshoi Theatre. He'll conduct La Boheme on May 3 & 2.


The Bolshoi Ballet presents the world premiere of Lost Illusions. An unprecedented occasion: taking part in the production are three former Bolshoi Theatre artistic directors of recent years: composer — Leonid Desyatnikov, choreographer — Alexei Ratmansky and conductor — Alexander Vedernikov. From such an experienced team interesting results can be expected!

Ruslan Pronin, the former Bolshoi Ballet soloist, has been appointed the Bolshoi Ballet Assistant Artistic Director.


In organizing the 2nd International Mstislav Rostropovich Festival, in honor of the maestro’s memory, the MSTISLAV ROSTROPOVICH Foundation has put a big stake on ballet by inviting the American Ballet Theatre, one of the two ‘top’ American ballet companies, to Moscow. The last major ABT tour to the Russian capital was over 40 years ago; the venue this time will be the Bolshoi Theatre New Stage.

The series of subscription concerts given by the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra, Chorus and Soloists at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall winds up with a program devoted to the works of Johannes Brahms, conducted by Maestro Vassily Sinaysky.
