Mikhailovsky (Mussorgsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre playbill

Mikhailovsky (Mussorgsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre


On 8 November 1833 the first performance took place on the stage of the Imperial Mikhailovsky Theatre just built by the architect A. Briullov. The brilliantly suitable to the architectural ensemble of Michailovskaya square building became the third Emperor stage in Saint Petersburg.
Firstly the theatre building was mainly used as a concert hall. But, to tell the truth, there were opera performances among drama performances and musical comedies performed by the troupe of the Alexandrinsky theatre or coming French and German actors.

After February revolution was a born of new theatre.
A young theatre gained its own image, its aesthetic credo very soon. The concentration on entertaining and comical material was reflected in a new title that was gained by the theatre in 1920 - The state Academic theatre of comical opera. But the title was changed again very soon; since 1921 the theatre got the name of Maly Academic Theatre, and since 1926 Leningrad Academic Maly Opera Theatre (Malegot for short).
S.Gaudasinsky, directed the theatre since 1981, could restore the traditions of "the theatre a singer and actor", which Malegot was famous for in the period of its coming-to-be. The everyday rehearsal work was directed by a producer to working out vocal speech by actors. The stage of the theatre became a real school of actor art for soloists.

The repertoire politics of the theatre was also changed. One by one the opera masterpieces of Russian composer came back into the repertoire: Mussorgsky's "Boris Godunov" and "Khovanshina", Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" and "The Queen of Spades", Rimsky-Korsakov's "Golden Cockerel" and "The Tale of Tsar Saltan, of His Son the Renowned and of the Beautiful Swan-Princess", Borodin's "Prince Igor". Russian opera became an aesthetic credo of the theatre. The range of the task made the theatre to change its name once again because the title "Maly" was not suitable for the theatre stage ideas any more. Since 1989 Malegot became Saint-Petersburg Academic Mussorgsky Opera and Ballet Theatre. The name of Mussorgsky was not accidental. The staging of "Boris Godunov" was the greatest and the most important success of the theatre, promoting the renewing of Russian repertoire.
At the same time together with Russian classics the European opera including its modern samples (M.Landovky's "Madman" and K.Michem's "Tartuf") and even operetta continue living at opera stage (one of the last works of I/ Strauss "The Bat" is a light sample of creative diapason of troupe).
In 2006 the theatre was returned its historic name - Mikhailovsky Theatre. It is now renewing quite rapidly - new troupe, playbill. Even the atmosphere, air feel different.
