It is the beating heart of Russian culture: St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre, a bastion of arts excellence that has endured regime changes and revolutions for over two centuries. As a cultivator of innovation and talent, it is unparalleled. Balanchine studied there, as did Baryshnikov, Nijinsky, and Nureyev. Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov premiered operas there. And Mahler, Berlioz and Rachmaninoff all conducted on its stages.
Today, under the leadership of artistic director Valery Gergiev, the Mariinsky—which comprises an orchestra, chorus, ballet and opera company—remains at the forefront of the international scene. In this two-week residency, the renowned theater comes to BAM with a diverse program that bridges its incomparable legacy with its present-day status in the vanguard of the performing arts.
