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.

The flames of Seville will soon be blazing alongside those of Paris (viz., Alexei Ratmansky’s ballet-reconstruction The Flames of Paris) at the Bolshoi Theatre: for on July 15th, Bizet’s opera Carmen will be returning to the repertoire in a new production by Alexei Borodin.

The Bolshoi Theatre continues to present one-off productions, while at the same time replenishing and lending variety to world ballet Shakespeariana. The end of the last season saw the world première of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s ballet, The Taming of the Shrew, and at the height of the present season, we have another world ballet première — Hamlet.

In the year of the 175th Tchaikovsky anniversary, the Bolshoi Theatre presents to its audiences Lev Dodin’s The Queen of Spades — a production which has already been shown at three of the world’s leading opera-houses. But in Russia, in addition to being the première of a notable Dodin production, it will also mark his debut as one of the world’s great directors of dramatic opera — in which capacity he has long been known abroad.
