Parterre Magazine: May


On 24 May the gala concert dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus will take place on our stage. An amazing music day awaits everyone, who will look into the Belarusian Bolshoi this evening. The world opera and ballet stars will come to congratulate the theatre. Who is it? You can read in Parterre Magazine!
In 2015 our theatre celebrated its birthday with the audience for the first time. The Open Day turned from an experimental one into a traditional theatre project. Every year on 25 May several thousand guests visit the main academic stage of the country in an open format. Many of them are theatre-goers of the Belarusian Bolshoi, who certainly know about the theatre no less than guides, who are supposed to reveal all the secrets of theatrical cuisine once a year and answer the most tricky questions of visitors. What awaits the audience this year?..

The fatal beauty, breaking men's hearts with just one look. Men, willing to give up everything for the fleeting moment with her. The famous love triangle, full of dark passions embodied in the immortal Georges Bizet’s music, heat the hearts of the Belarusian opera admirers for eighty five years. On 25 May, on the birthday of the Bolshoi Theatre, the Franco-Moroccan mezzo-soprano Ahlima Mhamdi will perform the role of the fatal beauty Carmen on our stage.

‘The ballet Petrushka staged by Michel Fokine premiered in 1911 as part of the “Russian Seasons” at the Théâtre du Châtelet. Today, this performance, of course, does not bear such revolutionary concept as in the early twentieth century, but then it was tantamount to a cultural coup. People from the street (beggars, shopkeepers, cab drivers, police officers and others) appeared on the stage. There wasn’t anything like this before, because ballet was an art of the elite...’ Andris Liepa -specially for Parterre Magazine.

Ballet Summer at the Bolshoi project turns 5 this season. Every year just before the closing of the season the main stage of the Belarusian Bolshoi becomes a kingdom of His Majesty dance for a week. From 6 to 13 June we are waiting for all ballet lovers in the theatre!
From 22 to 24 June the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus holds an annual festival at the Radziwill Castle. “Evenings of the Bolshoi Theatre at the Radziwill Castle” will gather admirers of classical music, opera and ballet at the Belarusian Versailles.

The People's Artist of Russia Alexander Titel specially for Parterre Magazine: ‘Once Bohemia was very tiny number of people, who often made their lives an art object and a main interest of the general public, wishing to draw attention to themselves. Today artists live a much more modest and ordinary life, being committed to professional creativity and the values that they instilled, instilled also in higher educational institutions…’

"My dear friend theatre! Congratulations! You're actually my great friend. I grew up behind the stage. I even was a little artist on stage. You inculcate in me a taste for beauty, harmony and predetermined my profession. I wish you new well-worked productions, talented directors and conductors. Let the artists delight you with their creativity. Enjoy music, voices and dance! May harmony be in everything around! I love and hug all your halls, stages and backstage. I'm your friend forever! Irina Zevakina’. Our beloved viewers congratulate our favorite theater with anniversary.
