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.

At the end of 242 theatre’s season in honor of 160 anniversary of Puccini the Bolshoi presents a new production of La Bohème.

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.

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.

Among the authors are composer Ilya Demutsky, who wrote already the second score for the Bolshoi (truly a record of our days), stage-director Kirill Serebrennikov and choreographer Yuri Possokhov, once leading dancer of the Bolshoi Theatre and now one of the constant creators of its contemporary ballet repertoire.

We are now fortunately familiar with Katie Mitchell: last season the Aix-en-Provence Opera Festival presented her two acclaimed productions on the New Stage of the Bolshoi - Written on Skin and Trauernacht. The new opera by British composer George Benjamin and the stage performance of J.S. Bach cantatas made a deep impression on public and received particular praise from the press. But that was just the beginning; the main objective was to include Mitchell’s staging in the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre! And we succeeded: in cooperation with Aix-en-Provence we'll show the baroque opera Alcina in modern outfit! The premiere series of the performance will be held on 18, 20, 22, 24 and 26 October.

After a pause of seventeens year the Bolshoi comes back to The Maid of Pskov by Rimsky-Korsakov. The choir, the orchestra and the soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre, under the baton of the chief conductor and musical director Tugan Sokhiev will present a concert performance of this opera.

The first premiere of the 242 season was a theatrical concert, which combines two remarkable works - The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten and Le carnaval des animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns. Probably, the definition of the genre seems to be too official, though it reveals a very unusual but, for sure, absolutely fascinating idea.
The second run: October 19 & 21.

The Snow Maiden by Rimsky-Korsakov, a masterpiece of Russian opera, is back to the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre. The authors of the new production are the chief conductor and the music director of the Bolshoi Theatre Tugan Sokhiev and the stage director Alexander Titel.

In March, the Bolshoi Theatre performs two iconic ballets at once - Etudes by Harald Lander (1948) and The Cage by Jerome Robbins (1951). Despite such a small “age gap” these ballets are almost the exact antipodes.

This will be the second time in its entire history that the Bolshoi is turning to a Britten opera and its first ever production of Benjamin Britten’s BILLY BUDD. In days gone by, Billy Budd used to be a rare visitor to world stages but, in recent times, it is being produced increasingly often. The Bolshoi is presenting a co-production together with Deutsche Oper (Berlin) and The English National Opera – a company with which it cooperated with spectacular success last season. But whereas its first experience of doing a joint production with the ENO was in the field of 18th century baroque opera (Handel’s Rodelinda) for which it garnered six Golden Mask nominations and eight Golden Mask nominees, this time round it has chosen a 20th century English music classic.

The opera by Mieczysław Weinberg first appeared on the Bolshoi theatre’s repertoire. The Bolshoi starts to acquaint the public with the heritage of this remarkable composer with his last (but not the least!) opera (it was originally composed in1986) - “The Idiot” based on the novel of the same name by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

The Bolshoi Theatre is mounting a production of Manon Lescaut, the opera which was Giacomo Puccini’s first triumph in theatre. It is a work which has always enjoyed a happy performance history but this will be its first ever performance at the Bolshoi, just as opera diva, Anna Netrebko, who is singing the title role, will be making her first ever appearance in a Bolshoi production.

The first and, to-date the only, baroque opera produced at the Bolshoi (1979) was George Frideric Handel’s Giulio Cesare, and now, making amends for the ‘baroque’ hiatus in its repertoire, the Bolshoi turns again to Handel’s music – for just the second time in its history. The choice of Rodelinda is symbolical: for in the 20th century it was this opera that marked Handel’s return to popularity in theatre.
