After a long break, the creative team of The Bolshoi theatre returns to work on native stages!
On September 6, 8 and 10, “Don Carlo” opera starring Anna Netrebko, Ildar Abdrazakov, Yusif Eyvazov, Agunda Kulayeva, Elchin Azizov will open our 245th season on the Historic stage.
The first ballet performance in Moscow will take place on September, 12: “Don Quixote” in choreographic version by Alexei Fadeyechev will be shown this evening to doctors who selflessly save people's lives.

Despite many difficulties, in the 245th season we are going to present 3 ballet and 7 opera premieres, festivals, concerts in the Philharmonic, tours to Europe and South America (Argentina), and host the international Yuri Grigorovich ballet Competition on our stages. Everything that The Bolshoi did not manage to implement due to lockdown in 244th season will be implemented in the next 2 years.

Thank you for being with us, let's spend the upcoming season together!

Volunteers have responded to our call and digitized the Bolshoi’s history!
The Bolshoi Theatre and ABBYY finalized results of a crowdsourcing international project “Open Bolshoi History”. ABBYY’s intellectual technologies and over 7,800 project participants from 60 countries helped to extract, digitize and organize data based on 48,000 posters, 120,000 brochures and 100,000 photos of theatre museum collection, which has been accumulated during 200 years. Valuable data of over 28,000 operas, 18,000 ballets and 5,000 concerts, including Feodor Chaliapin, Leonid Sobinov, Maya Plisetskya and other brightest stars who ever performed on the Bolshoi’s stage, are now placed in one electronic database. After due diligence, digitized historical documents are published in a special search section online archive.bolshoi.ru. More information and interesting facts from volunteer project are available here openbolshoi.ru.
Our dear volunteers, The Bolshoi Theatre thanks you all greatly!
