Featuring gems from opera, orchestral music and ballet and with modern dance interludes, the program encompassed the history of the legendary venue from its beginnings to the present day.

Among other luminaries celebrating the spirit of this illustrious establishment on its inauguration were Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Olga Borodina and Vladimir Shklyarov, supported by the ballet, chorus and orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre.

The Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, is one of the most prestigious opera and ballet venues in the world.

Built in 1860, it was named in honor of Maria Alexandrovna of Hesse-Darmstadt, wife of Czar Alexander II.

Through most of the Soviet era it was known as the Kirov Theatre, where many of the stage masterpieces of Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, and Rimsky-Korsakov received their premieres. Today it is home to the famous Kirov Ballet as well as numerous international stars and ensembles.

After the turn of the millennium, the theatre was painstakingly restored. Since 2013, St. Petersburg’s Theatre Square has been crowned with the Mariinsky II, an imposing new arts and performance venue.
