Theatre is the national honor of Russian and the “icon” of the Russian culture.
Feel the rhythm of the Russian ballet and opera at the Mariinsky theatre – the most renowned theatre of St. Petersburg. The present building dates back to 1859, when an earlier theater was remodeled and got its name – the Mariinsky – after Alexander II wife Maria. During the pre-revolutionary years the theater was constantly under royal patronage. Nowadays the Theater is famous all over the world thanks to its brilliant ballet company, its opera troupe and its Artistic and General Director and main conductor Maestro Valery Gergiev, who is also the principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, principal conductor of the Munich Philharmonic and artistic director of the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg.
