New Year's Greetings



Dear friends!

I heartily wish you Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!
Let the coming year bring interesting musical discoveries, unforgettable meetings with your favorite artists and acquaintance with new names, and let the magical world of art will give you a lot of pleasant moments of true aesthetic pleasure!

Dear audiences! Thank you for being with us in 2018. You attended our performances and concerts, gave our artists your attention and never ceased to applause. Your love is the most valuable gift for those, who devoted their lives to the theatre. We work, create and constantly move forward only for you.
The past year has been very eventful for the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus. Our traditional theatre projects as Big New Year’s Ball, Ballet Summer at the Bolshoi, Evenings of the Bolshoi Theatre at the Radziwill Castle, 5th Minsk International Christmas Singing Competition, 9th Minsk International Christmas Opera Forum have been successfully implemented. Amazing concerts with world opera and ballet stars took place on the stage of the theatre. Bright premieres were sold out, causing positive feedback from professionals and viewers. Productions of the past years have always had full houses. Throughout the year, our artists have toured in Austria and Germany, Switzerland and France, Mexico and Scandinavia. All this confirms that the Bolshoi Theatre is a team of like-minded professionals, who give all their talent and skill to their favorite work. Today we not only remember the outgoing year, but also make plans for the future. Many challenges lie ahead in 2019. This will require internal energy, self-confidence, support of like-minded people, love of loved ones, good health and good luck. And also it is important to be willing to make the effort and not give up. And let all of the above be with each of us!

I sincerely wish you all peace, prosperity, creative ideas, good news and professional success! Happy New Year! Be happy!

Best wishes,
Vladimir Gridiushko
General Director
Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus
