«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).
