«Вот как жили при Аскольде наши деды и отцы»
On March 2 on the Chamber Stage of the Bolshoi Theatre, there will be a premiere of the opera Askold’s Grave which has been absent from any stage for some time. In the first half of the 19th century, this opera was a calling card of the Bolshoi. Firstly, because it belonged to the pen of Alexei Verstovsky, one of the most famous composers and an outstanding theatre figure, whose activity was largely connected with the Bolshoi Theatre. Secondly, it was at the Bolshoi where his first production took place in 1835 (and the last in 1883).


The Bolshoi presents the final premiere of the now concluding 246th season, but to be precise, three world premieres of one-act ballets combined in one programme: Made in Bolshoi to music by A. Korolyov staged by Anton Pimonov, Les Saisons by A. Glazunov staged by Artemy Belyakov and Dancemania by Y. Krasavin, staged by Vyacheslav Samodurov. The premiere performances will be held on the 7th-10th of July.

«Лоэнгрин» возвращается!
Lohengrin is one of the few Richard Wagner’s operas which is well known in Russia. It owes its success in Moscow, first of all, thanks to Leonid Sobinov and Antonina Nezhdanova – famous performers of Lohengrin and Elsa parts. After they left the stage, in 1930s, the stage presence of an opera about the legendary Knight of Holy Grail ceased to exist. After almost a century, Lohengrin is coming back on Historic Stage: it will be premiered on February 24.

The production is realised by the duo of Yuri Possokhov and Aleksander Molochnikov. This creative union originated directly from the work on The Seagull.
