The reopening show of the historic stage of the Bolshoï Theatre by Jurowski and Tcherniakov.

"Ruslan and Lyudmila", opera of Mikhaïl Glinka, has particular relation with the Bolshoï Theater, it held more than 700 representations throughout the history and nine different productions. Logically the fable of Mikhaïl Glinka (from a poem of Pushkin), symbol of the Russian opera, opened the season 2011-2012 of the majestic Moscow’s opera, after its long renovation.
This reopening inspired the scenographer Dmitri Tcherniakov, who signed the direction of this new production. The new devices of the Bolshoi Theatre and its two giant screens are fully exploited in a spectacular staging. Tcherniakov transposes Glinka’s opera at the 21th century with contemporary ambitions because of the "modernity of the subject", trying there to put forward "the deep feelings of the characters”, exposing the protagonists to very modern temptations: a "harem" for Ruslan, a Thai massage for Lyudmila…

Vladimir Jurowski conducts The Bolshoi Theater Orchestra on a magnificent distribution with among others Albina Shagimuratova, Mikhail Petrenko, Alexandrina Pendatchanka, Charles Workman and Elena Zaremba.
A production greeted for its musical quality and its staging.
