Opera in Bolshoi theatre
Moscow has numerous venues where you can not only see ballet, but also hear opera. The place of honor goes to the Bolshoi Theatre that features 20th– and 21st-century Russian and European classical operas as well as unique compositions staged only at the Bolshoi Theatre.
Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theatre
Moscow’s second major opera venue is the Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theatre. Buying tickets to this Theatre’s performances is much easier than to the Bolshoi Theatre, but you can be sure you will enjoy great music and truly spirited performance just as much!
The Helikon Opera Musical Theatre, founded in 1990, is worth a visit. Its company now has over 350 artists representing various genres and its repertoire includes over 50 productions. What makes this theatre interesting is the modern interpretation of classical works and audacious directing ideas.
New Opera theatre
The New Opera Theatre offers its spectators a wide range of performances including Russian and international classical operas and inimitable divertissement programs. The New Opera works towards innovation and always has something unexpected to surprise its audience with.
Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre
Opened in 2002, the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre was spearheaded by the renowned opera singer, director and educator Galina Vishnevskaya. Designed as an academy for young singers to upgrade their professional skills, the Centre has quickly gained popularity due not only to its advanced training programs for young singers, but also to classical music concerts, festivals, opera soirees and performances by international stars. Interestingly, entrance to many events is free of charge.
