With nearly 200 dancers, one of the most extensive repertoires in the world, technically the best-equipped theater in the world, and with the modern stage opened in 2002 and the historical stage reopened in 2011 after six years of work, there are not enough superlatives to describe the Bolshoi Theater. Opened in 1776 and two steps away from the Kremlin, the Bolshoi remains as one of the most vibrant and famous symbols of Russia and the Russian arts scene.
Thanks to your experienced guide and numerous histories and anecdotes, you will discover the Bolshoi Theater behind the scenes, where the classical as well as contemporary concerts, operas, and ballets are rehearsed. You will start your tour of the Bolshoi's backstage area with the new underground stage, then discover the splendors of the historic stage and its richly decorated loges. After, your guide will take you into the “gallery” in order to learn more about the chandelier and ceiling paintings. You will end your visit by viewing the costume-sewing workshops, another key and impressive part of the Bolshoi. If you are lucky enough during your visit, you will have the privilege of attending a rehearsal.
The Bolshoi Theater is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, a must-see tour during your stay in Russia, an essential and fascinating visit that you can not miss!
