Opera

Moscow's central theater district lies a short distance to the northeast of the Kremlin and Red Square. Both the Bolshoi and the Maly theaters sit directly on Theater Square, while the Moscow Arts Theater lies just around the corner.
Bolshoi Theater

The imposing home of the internationally-famed Bolshoi ballet was constructed in 1824 by Osip Bove, though the company itself was begun in 1773 as a dancing school for the Moscow Orphanage. For much of its history the Bolshoi was overshadowed by the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, but with Moscow's restoration as the capital in 1918 it gained preeminence. For most of the last three decades the Bolshoi was led by Yuri Grigorovich, an artistic director known as much for his autocratic control as for his accomplished, classical choreography. Under Grigorovich's tenure, and graced by the presence of a series of remarkably gifted dancers, the Bolshoi's became known as one of the world's great companies. Despite Grigorovich's departure in 1995, its performances continue to elicit international acclaim, and an evening at the Bolshoi remains one of Moscow's sublime pleasures.

Description: The theatre was founded in 1940 when music theatres united. "Stasik" (as the visitors call it) is the second after the Bolshoy theatre. But this tiny theatre has its own inexpressable beauty. Stagings are good. Swan Lake here has always been considered the best in Moscow. Stasik is the right place to start acquainting with opera and ballet.
Pokrovsky Chamber Musical Theater New Stage Novaya Opera Theater
The Novaya Opera Theatre of Moscow was founded in 1991 on the initiative of Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov and Evgeny Kolobov, artistic director of the theatre. Since its inception, the theatre, operating on the contemporary contract basis, has been a leading opera house in Russia, winning recognition from opera lovers and the most
exacting critics.
