World famous Bolshoi Ballet and Opera theatre (established 1776) - Small Stage
Bolshoi is one of the leading ballet and opera companies in the world.
The imposing home of the internationally-famed Bolshoi ballet and opera was constructed in 1824 by Osip Bove, though the company itself was begun in 1773 as a dancing school for the Moscow Orphanage. For much of its history the Bolshoi
was overshadowed by the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, but with Moscow's restoration as the capital
in 1918 it gained preeminence. For most of the last three decades the Bolshoi was led by Yuri Grigorovich, an
artistic director known as much for his accomplished, classical choreography.
Under Grigorovich's tenure, and graced by the presence of a series of remarkably gifted dancers, the Bolshoi's
became known as one of the world's great ballet companies. Its performances elicit international acclaim, and an evening
at the Bolshoi remains one of Moscow's sublime pleasures. The lovely, acoustically-excellent theater is a very captivating venue.
