Visiting the magnificent Bolshoi Theatre

14 Jul 2014

Home to arguably the world's largest and most famous opera and ballet company, the Bolshoi Theatre is a symbol of Russia, and of Russian artistic excellence. Before the Bolshoi comes to Hong Kong for the first time with its combined forces of opera, ballet, orchestra and chorus, let’s go explore this magnificent institution.

Bolshoi means 'big', and everything about this magnificent institution is on the grand scale - big productions, huge casts, great spectacle. Three grand productions will be brought to the 43rd HKAF, including the opera production The Tsar’s Bride; as well as ballet productions The Flame of Paris and Jewels. Please visit respective programme pages for details.
