Over the recent years, we make sure to present opera in concert version (this season – two!). First of all, it increases the number of opera premieres. Secondly, the unbreakable rule is: music director of the Bolshoi maestro Tugan Sokhiev always chooses wonderful piece, which is rarely performed. This refers to opera Mazeppa by P. Tchaikovsky. Concert version will premiere on Historic Stage on 7 March.

Sadko by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov did not make any appearance on stage of the Bolshoi Theatre for a long time. How will it turn out to be this time – in Dmitri Tcherniakov’s production? Let us imagine we are in director’s shoes. His task is to stage an archetypal plot of hero’s journey, which needs to be live and organic for our modern comprehension. Charming adventurer, gusli musician (East Slavic multi-string plucked instrument) exists simultaneously in both worlds – real and a fantasy one. He magically gains wealth and loses it, descends into the sea in order to come back to the land again. What is the actual embodiment can this plot have at present times? We will find out answer to this question quite soon.

Not only had remarkable opera Dido and Aeneas never been performed at the Bolshoi Theatre, moreover, not a single production of its author had ever made an appearance on our billboards! That is why this premiere is so special for us – we introduce Henry Purcell to our composition “circle”!

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.

A well-known opera by Giuseppe Verdi – Un Ballo in Maschera – returns to the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre. This is a typical Verdi’s case: great music (some arias and ensembles have become world famous hits), increased passions, breathtaking plot which should be followed closely to keep up with. And a distinguishing mark (which appeared due to the censorship) – is a wandering place of action, which affects the spelling of the main character’s name and title.

* Dial M for Murder is iconic film directed by Alfred Hitchcock (1954).

The Bolshoi cooperates again with acknowledged choreographer, director of the Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier. We used to show his famous Midsummer Night’s Dream, we perform his glorious Lady of the Camellias (both ballets born in the mid-1970s are among the masterpieces of the world ballet theatre). Still the third work gets out even from this series. For this time John Neumeier displays Anna Karenina (the title speaks for itself). This is the new production, a co-production with Hamburg ballet – which showed the world premiere of this piece last summer.
