October, 28 "Iolanta" opera by Pyotr Tchaikovsky premiered on the Historical stage. For the first time at The Bolshoi the opera will be presented together with its �lost twin' Nutcracker though, true, in the form of the Symphonic Suite rather than the two-act ballet. But, for all that, Tchaikovsky's idea of uniting the two works into a single production, rather than simply presenting them as a double bill on the same evening, will be realized. Maestro Anton Grishanin conducted the staging by Sergei Zhenovach, and Alexander Borovsky was in charge of set design.

The main parts on the premiere night have been performed by Ekaterina Morozova (Iolanta), Oleg Dolgov (Vaudemont), Vyacheslav Pochapsky (King Rene), Igor Golovatenko (Robert) and Elchin Azizov (Ibn-Hakia).

On 20th October, the most popular Instagram-photographers will come to the Theatre. For one hour they will be looking for some interesting perspectives and taking beautiful photos in the Main Foyer, the Imperial Foyer and on the Historic stage. Then, next week the participants will upload their photos to Instagram, where you will be able to find them with the hashtag #EmptyBolshoi.

The idea of an "empty" campaign was born in New York when Instagram-photographers were invited to a closed meeting at the Metropolitan museum after-hours. Participants were allowed to take photos which portrayed the famous museum from new and interesting perspectives. The project turned out to be so successful that the campaign began to spread all over the world and many companies now gladly participate in it. Russia will be represented in this project by The Bolshoi Theatre.

According to his words he made this choice because The Bolshoi Theatre's creative life has always been profoundly bonded with the name of Peter Tchaikovsky. Creating this opera was like an investigation for composer, he explored different literary sources thoughtfully and put them together carefully into his own libretto: "Talking about literatury side of question it is difficult to tell how exhausted I am. How many pens I gnaw before putting some lines on paper! "This process of chasing and creating a masterpiece will be exactly shown on the stage by artists and musicians.

The soloists of the Bolshoi theatre became guest stars in the performance of Yury Grigorovich's Ballet troupe in an ancient amphitheatre under the open sky in Athens. Maria Vinogradova (Phrygia), Yekaterina Shipulina (Aegina), Denis Rod'kin (Spartacus) and Alexander Volchkov (Crassus) took part in the "Spartacus"; Anna Nikulina (Giselle) and Ruslan Skvorcov (Albrecht) - in the "Giselle".

Yury Grigorovich shares his impression of this tour: "The first time the Bolshoi brought its stagings to Irodium in 1977 - "Spartacus", "Giselle" and "Swan lake". And now, after almost 40 years the Greek can see the "Spartacus" perfomed by Krasnodar Ballet theatre with a new generation of soloists of the Bolshoi. We are not trying to compare, we are trying to continue great traditions. The soloists of the Bolshoi with the conductor Pavel Sorokin had a huge - enormous! - success in this legendary place. And it means that the tradition is safe and the great level of the Bolshoi Ballet is unbeatable. And what else can we ask for?".

The concert will take place at the Bolshoi Theatre on December 7th. The event will be organized following the initiative of the ballerina and the Bolshoi Theatre's soloist Yuri Baranov.

The idea to organize this concert belongs to Svetlana Zakharova and the Bolshoi Theatre's soloist Yuri Baranov. Zakharova: "I got the idea to help the Kiev School of Choreography right after I had gone to Kiev on tour and visited my native school. As it turned out, nothing had been changed in the building for many years". The ballerina added that the institution needed an urgent reconstruction. The School was built 76 year ago. The concert will star such masters of the world ballet, as Sergei Polunin, Leonid Sarafanov, Denis Matvienko, Alexander Zhembrovskyy, Ivan Putrov, Iana Salenko, Alina Cojocaru, Nina Zmievets and Alexander Ryabko. The artists will present fragments from the famous ballet productions.

This time the Company is to appear at the Lincoln Center Festival, New York. Also taking part in the Festival, which will run from 7 July to 16 August, are: Houston Grand Opera, the Sydney Theatre Company, the Kabuki Heisei Nakamura-za Company, and the Rosas Company, led by the famous contemporary dance soloist and choreographer Anna Teresa De Keersmaeker.

The Festival originated in 1996 fired by the ambitious idea of showing New Yorkers something they would never be able to see anywhere else. Hence its unusually broad span in terms of both geography and genre: ranging all the way from concerts of academic music to circus performances, from classical ballet to performance and video art. In addition, the Festival regularly introduces its public to forms of theatre which are somewhat unusual to them - for instance, Vietnam's Water Puppet Theatre, Ta'ziyeh, an indigenous form of music theatre developed in Persia and the Japanese Kabuki theatre.

Vladimir Shcherbakov was born on July 7th, 1939 in Ashgabat into a working family with many children. In 1968 he graduated from the Saratov State Conservatoire named after L.V. Sobinov (class of F. Gartsman); in 1967 he became the soloist of the Saratov Opera and Ballet Theatre named after N. Chernyshevsky. It was there that he prepared the leading tenor roles: Jose ("Carmen"), Prince Yury ("The Enchantress"), Manrico ("Il Trovatore"), Radames ("Aida"), German ("The Queen of Spades"), Lensky ("Eugene Onegin"), Rodolfo ("La Boheme") and others. The work at this theatre, the desire to understand the complexity and the nuances of the vocal art became the foundation for the artist's future success. In 1975 Vladimir I. Shcherbakov became a soloist of the Leningrad State Opera and Ballet Theatre named after S. Kirov. In 1977 he was invited to be a soloist at the Bolshoi Theatre, where he made his debut with the role of The Pretender ("Boris Godunov"), although he had already performed roles of German and Don Carlo at the Bolshoi a year earlier. Later he performed parts of Sadko, Vaudémont ("Iolanta"), Vladimir Igorevich ("Prince Igor"), Sobinin ("Ivan Susanin"), Cavaradossi ("Tosca"), Andrey Khovansky, Riccardo ("Un ballo in maschera"), Sergei ("Katerina Izmailova") and others.

"Every time that Shcherbakov starts working on a new part, he is very interested in the material and in the image, he thinks about it, sings it many times, connects with the character, gets excited about it, tries, asks for advice, argues and searches. Eventually he finds what he needs. Every time this "beginning" takes a higher level!", - this is what the singer's colleague Yuri Grigoryev wrote about him. His soft, powerful and beautiful voice, which was even throughout the whole timbre, allowed the artist to perform both the lyrical and dramatic repertoire very successfully. His cantilena skills and the ability to sing the top notes created the impression of vocal freedom and ease that the listeners value so much. The artist toured a lot, both in his native country and abroad; he also performed with the companies of the Saint Petersburg Maly Opera Theatre, the Warsaw Grand Theatre and WrocЕ‚aw Opera House. In 1990 he received the title of a People's Artist of RSFSR.

"Invitation to the Museum" - Marking the 140th anniversary of the ballerina Lyubov A. Roslavleva

Lyubov Roslavleva was born in 1874 into a noble family that lived in Yegor'yevsk in Ryazan governorate. She was the daughter of a broke officer of the Lancers regiment and a marshal of the nobility; at the age of 11 she entered the Moscow theatre school and after 7 months of studies she already performed a solo in the ballet "Don Quixote", choreographed by M. Petipa. In 1886 she started studying in the class of Bogdanov; in 1889 she moved to the class of J.Mendes. In 1892 she joined the Bolshoi Theatre and was given several solo parts right away; in 1893 she substituted for Lydia Geiten in the part of Swanhilde in the ballet "Coppélia" by Leo Delibes. In 1895 she was invited to the Mariinsky Theatre to substitute for the famous Mathilde Kshesinskaya in the same part. In 1896 she received the right for an annual benefit performance. Lyubov Roslavleva was married to the Maly Theatre artist Prov Sadovsky Jr.; she often attended drama performances and learned a lot from drama actors - critics notices that the ballerina's pantomime was very dramatic, and her dancing - very expressive. According to the famous stage designer Karl Valts, "she was not particularly beautiful, but there was some particular charm about her image and her dance that conquered everyone". As for her dancing technique, she was not just ahead of Adelina Guiri, but also competed with Pierina Legnani, whom all St. Petersburg ballerinas envied, successfully. She performed the major ballet repertoire in Moscow and performed at the Mariinsky Theatre many times. The list of her parts includes: Claermont and the Star of Venus ("Stars"), The Tsar- Maiden ("The Little Humpbacked Horse"), Medora ("Le Corsaire"), Kitri ("Don Quixote"), Cinderella ("The Crystal Slipper"), etc. She was the first ballerina in Moscow to perform the part of Aurora ("Sleeping Beauty"); illness prevented her from being the first to perform the parts of Odette-Odile ("Swan Lake") and Raymonda. The part of Nikia in "La Bayadere" became her last role. She brought back to life the traditions of Ekaterina Sankovskaya and Praskovya Lebedeva, the great Moscow ballerinas of the past.

He was born in 1899 in Ryazan into a unique peasant family, where the grandfather, the father and the five sons were gifted with powerful and beautiful voices. The young son Alexander was passionate about singing even in his childhood and suffered from not having the possibility to sing in the church choir; he could not make his dream come true because his boyish voice was not set at that time. He started really singing at the age of 15; he had a very powerful bass voice. His elder brother Grigory, who was a leading soloist of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Bolshoi Theatre even before the revolution, had an influence on the singer's further development.

In 1893 he took private singing lessons with professor Camillo Everardy; in 1897-1899 he studied in his class in the music college. Later Vladimir Lossky mastered his skills in Italy; when he was the Bolshoi Theatre's soloist, he studied in Paris for four months.

"Invitation to the Museum" - M.I.Glinka - 210th anniversary

This year we celebrate the 210th anniversary of Mikhail I. Glinka, a great Russian composer and the father of Russian national classical music. The importance of Glinka's creative work in the history of music can be compared to the impact that Pushkin had on the Russian literature. Both of them were fathers of the mighty artistic movement that is called the Russian classics. Pushkin and Glinka introduced and formulated the cornerstone of the nationality of art. In the dark times of reaction during the rule of Nicholas I. Glinka brought the image of a simple peasant to the opera stage. This image expressed the wisdom of the nation, the beauty, the greatness and the nobleness of its soul. The image of Susanin represents the Russian heroic character, which reveals its greatness during hard times. If there had been no Susanin, the Russian opera would have had neither Tsar Boris, nor Dosifei in "Khovanshchina", nor Prince Igor, nor characters of "The Tale of the Invisible City of Kitezh and Maiden Fevronia", nor Kutuzov in the opera "War and Peace" by S. Prokofiev. This mighty Glinka tradition - the tradition of truth, nationality and patriotism - has been developing in the Russian opera for over a hundred years.

Galina Vishnevskaya International Opera Singers Competition

The International Opera Singers Competition, which was organized in Moscow for the fifth time, is named after Galina Vishnevskaya, the jewel in the crown of the Russian opera tradition, and this is not for nothing. Galina P. Vishnevskaya used to say: "The profession of a singer is a very hard one; there are no easy rides in art, and you can learn the real secrets of this profession and to achieve whatever you dream about only if you devote yourself to this art fully. You need to follow this rule during your whole life". The singer herself followed this rule for more than half a century.

The International Ballet Prix "Benois de la Danse" was awarded in Moscow

The International Ballet Prix "Benois de la Danse" was awarded for the 22nd time. The ceremony took place at the Bolshoi Theatre Historic Stage, where the idea to create a professional dance award originally appeared at some point. Yuri Grigorovich has been the permanent head of the jury ever since. This year he was accompanied by ladies only: the great Swedish dancer Ana Laguna, an etoile of Opera National de Paris Agnès Letestu (in France this title is never used with the prefix "ex"), Carla Fracci - a legendary Italian ballerina, and a People's Artist of the USSR Gabriela Komleva, representing the Mariinsky Theatre. The Prix was awarded in three nomination categories. An Argentinean dancer German Cornejo, who works at the American Ballet Theatre, was named the best male dancer. The jury evaluated a whole lot of his work presented in the previous season: solo in "Trilogy" and the part of Caliban in "Tempest", two ballets by A. Ratmansky, the part of Aminta in "Sylvia", choreographed by F. Ashton, and the leading part in "Cheri", choreographed by M. Clarke.

09 April 2014, Wednesday


The name of Fyodor Fedorosvky, just like the names of M. Petipa, F. Chaliapin, A. Nezhdanova and B. Pokrovskiy, represents a whole epoch in the history of the Bolshoi Theatre. During his lifetime Feodorovsky was really famous, which is unusual for a set designer; however, in recent decades his name has remained familiar only to specialists. His first solo exhibition is organized by the Tretyakov Gallery together with the Bolshoi Theatre Museum and The A. A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum. Just like the previously organized exhibitions of designers, who worked together with S. Diaghilev - N. Goncharova, K. Korovin and A. Golovin - the project presents an exposition that unveils path-breaking tendencies in the decorative art of the first half of the 20th century.

"Fyodor Fedorovsky. Legend of the Bolshoi Theatre" - a book is being published in time for the exhibition

The book was inspired by the idea of the exhibition that will take place at the State Tretyakov Gallery (April 9th - August 3rd 2014). The edition was put together by the Bolshoi Theatre Museum, which provided more than 200 images of the designer's sketches from its collection, and photographs of the productions that Fedorovsky created sets for. The album also has some works from the collections of The A. A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum, The State Tretyakov Gallery, and St.Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music, as well as some documents from the Russian State Archive of Literature and Art. There are some articles, describing various periods of Fedorovsky's life, for example, the time when he worked with the Zimin Private Opera, his first decade at the Bolshoi Theatre (1918-1932), which was marked with various pursuits and experiments, and, of course, his most famous productions - "Prince Igor", "Sadko", "Khovanshchina" and "Boris Godunov", the last one still being the part of the Bolshoi repertoire.

On March 21st we mark the 175th anniversary of the great composer Modest P. Mussorgsky, who reformed music art. Feodor I. Chaliapin wrote: "I hope that no one will blame me for patriotic pretension if I say that I consider Mussorgsky to be the greatest genius for the creation of realism in opera. Among those who came before or after him, Mussorgsky had no equal in terms of inspiration and creative genius. Words and sound fuse in his pieces; moreover, this fusion then coalesces with the reality". In our regular column "Invitation to the Museum" we publish rare materials that are housed at the Bolshoi Theatre Museum.

The composer was born on the Karaevo estate not far from the city Toropets (Pskov Governorate) into a modest land-owning family. He studied at the Cadet School of Guards in Saint Petersburg. In 1856 he was raised from the ranks and received a commission with the Preobrazhensky Regiment. In the second half of 1850s, influenced by Darzomyzhsky and especially Balakirev, Mussorgsky decided to devote himself to music. In 1858 he resigned his commission and started his music education. In 1863 together with a group of around him the composer organized the "commune", following the model of free comradely living together that was described by N.G. Chernyshevsky in his novel "What is to be Done?" In the second half of 1860s Mussorgsky communicated intensely with his "Mighty Five" colleagues: Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin and Cui.
