Directions to Bolshoi Theatre
The Bolshoi Theatre is one of the greatest and most famous treasures of Russia. Its history dates back to 1776 and today it remains a unique architectural structure and a spiritual monument in Russia's capital, Moscow.
Located in Teatralnaya Square, the Bolshoi Theatre under the Soviet government began to attract the best artists of the country and most successful plays. In the 21st century, after a long break, the theatre changed repertoire and started showcasing works by Russian composers of the last century. Over the past few years, the Bolshoi was home to operas such as 'War and Peace', 'The Gambler' and 'The Fiery Angel', as well as ballets such as 'Cinderella' and 'Golden Age' by Shostakovich.
In 2004, the Bolshoi Theatre was awarded the State Prize of Russia for the ballet 'The Queen of Spades', and fourteen times honoured with the 'Golden Mask' award. Directed by Dmitry Cherniavsky, it was awarded the Grand Prize of Stanislavsky. To date, 70% of the theatre's repertoire is works by Russian composers and this trend is set to continue into the future.
The theatre includes top performers in ballet and opera and its own orchestra and brass band. Initially the theatre troupe included thirteen musicians and thirty artists, but today there are nine more. This a team of world class professionals with international fame.
The Bolshoi Theatre's artists have successfully performed across the four corners of the world. They have been applauded in Paris, New York, London, Milan, Munich, Tokyo and Hong Kong amongst many other destinations. They also have partnerships established with the world's largest theatres such as La Scala in Milan, the Latvian and Polish National Opera and Covent Garden. In the opera 'The Flying Dutchman', Bolshoi's artists assisted the Bavarian State Opera.
The Bolshoi Theatre is directed, first and foremost, to the Russian audience and so ticket prices are reasonable. Moreover, about 20% of tickets are sold at a price of 20 rubles. The same value is set for students of Russian universities. Sale of tickets to the Bolshoi Theatre is done through the official website on the internet and through the box office from 11.00 to 20.00 hours.
The Bolshoi's location in Teatralnaya Square makes it only a stone through away from the Maly Theatre, the Academic Youth Theatre, the Hotel Metropole and TSUM.
