A historic theatre of ballet and opera and the second largest opera house in all of Europe. It is also renowned for it's classical Russian architecture.
While the company was founded back in 1776, the magnificent building we see today was completed in 1824. Since then, it has served as Russia's national theatre. All white in colour, with 8 columns, intricate detailing on the facade and the 'quadriga' adorned at the entrance, the theatre is truly a stunning example of classical Russian architecture. The performances in the theatre are mostly of Russian origins, with a few foreign performances also taking places. The Bolshoi Ballet and Opera companies are counted amongst the most reputable companies all over the world, with the ballet company actually being the largest in the world. This is definitely a must for lovers of opera and ballet. You can check the listings of performances to decide when to go and the grandeur and the atmosphere of this theatre is sure to make it worth the visit.
