Backstage tour to the Mariinsky theatre in Saint-petersburg
This exclusive tour is a privilege of the few. I will be happy to share it with you and to invite you to the backstage tour to the Mariinsky theatre. Opened theatre curtains will allow travelers to go behind the scenes and get intimately acquainted with the sights and the personalities of ballet. I am delighted to offer this cultural tour where you can explore backstage with a theater historian. As private, invited guests, you are going to learn about the most important stage of ballet and opera in the Russian Empire, of all the premieres that have taken place on it, about the world-famous composers, dancers, actors and singers who have made invaluable contribution in the development of this kind of art and owing to whom the theater gained the world fame.
You will have the exclusive opportunity to see the auditorium through the eyes of artists – the sight of the auditorium from the stage. Also you will see the stage machinery, some of which was made as long back as in the 18-19 centuries.
It will be impossible to disregard the theater size and the fact that the space opened to the viewer’s eyes during the show is one-fifth of the total area of the building.
You will walk into the magnificent white hall in the lobby of the Mariinsky Theatre, where the Russian tsars went out, waiting for the next act. Also, you will see the scene from the Royal Box, where the most celebrated guests have the privilege to enjoy the view today.
The beauty and richness of the actors’ costumes and stage decorations always astonish and provoke admiration – and you will also have the opportunity to see all this, visiting the stage properties workshop.
And perhaps the most amazing part of the backstage tour to the Mariinsky Theatre will be a visit to the Golovinsky Hall (a set-design area), which is directly situated under the dome of the theater. This is the very place where sets for the performances are created.
I also offer you the backstage tour of the Great Philharmonic Hall, Theatre of Musical Comedy and the backstage tour to the Mikhailovsky Theater, with the symphony orchestra rehearsal.
The backstage tour to the Mariinsky theatre and other theatres in Saint Petersburg is an unforgettable lifetime experience for all connoisseurs of high art and for those who simply want to reveal the mystery of the magical world of theater.
