The first large-scale project dedicated to the Bolshoi Theatre’s Museum collection

«Бенуа де ла данс» объявил номинантов
Benois de la danse nominees announced
Bolshoi Theatre’s artists – Anastasia Stashkevich and Vyacheslav Lopatin – are up for the Best Dancers. A lovely duet on stage and in real life, they are nominated separately, each for their personal achievements. The jury members praised Anastasia Stashkevich for her role of Dolly in John Neumeier’s Anna Karenina, while Vyacheslav Lopatin was nominated for his performance in Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Faun within the concert A Play For Him at the Bolshoi Theatre.

The award ceremony and gala-concerts will take place on the Historical Stage on 21 and 22 May. This year the ever-popular festival will be run for the 27th time. And for the first time the permanent chairman of the jury Yuri Grigorovich will have a colleague: principal dancer of the Bolshoi, double Benois de la danse winner Svetlana Zakharova will serve as a co-chair.

The Bolshoi tells The Winter’s Tale – Christopher Wheeldon’s famous ballet begins its life in Moscow.


A new production integrating two operas by Gian Carlo Menotti – The Medium and The Telephone – will have its premiere on the Chamber Stage. This performance is staged by Alexander Molochnikov, and this fact promises so much: fresh and somewhat eccentric approach, surprises and unpredictable turns!


Bolshoi’s Opera soloists, Choir and Orchestra, led by maestro Tugan Sokhiev, appear again in France, performing Russian music at the most prestigious (and already very familiar) concert halls – Halle aux Grains in Toulouse and the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez of the Philharmonie de Paris.


This is the first time that Dvořák’s Rusalka has been staged at the Bolshoi!

Наш гость – Гийом Коте
December, 15 (evening performance) the title role in Romeo and Juliet will be performed by an amazing Canadian dancer Guillaume Côté – creator of Romeo’s part in Alexei Ratmansky’s production, commissioned by the National ballet of Canada (NBC).


About two years ago a concert version of fascinating Il Viaggio a Reims by Rossini was performed on the Bolshoi’s Historical stage. After several performances it became clear that we should include this opera in our repertoire. This idea came from the Music Director of the Bolshoi: Tugan Sokhiev conducted it in 2017, and now he also serves as a conductor.


December 11, 2018 the Bolshoi will conduct a unique broadcast from behind the scenes: one day before the premiere of Il Viaggio a Reims by Rossini we will show how this production is created. Starting at 11 a.m.!

Promotion in the Bolshoi Ballet
Georgy Gusev is promoted to the Soloist.


The Bolshoi presents the premiere of two one-act ballets – a famous work by William Forsythe (the first) and exclusive ballet by Edward Clug (the second). There is no need to explain, that's good news.


Il Barbiere di Siviglia — the most popular opera buffa by Gioacchino Rossini — returns to the Bolshoi. The new production of this piece will be staged on the New Stage by maestro Pierre Giorgio Morandi, a famous Italian conductor invited for the first time to the Bolshoi, and the director of our beloved Le Nozze di Figaro (to music by Mozart, 2015) Evgeny Pisarev, so this is the second time he’s turned to the story of the restless Figaro.
