"New Opera" Theatre in Moscow
January 22, 2017 10:32

The New Opera Theatre is situated in the picturesque Hermitage Garden at the heart of Moscow. Designed after the fashion of the summer Mirror Theater  by architect A.N. Novikov, its building is a recognizable and integral part of the cultural image of Moscow
The theater was founded at the initiative of Evgeny Kolobov and Yuri Luzhkov in 1991. Over years of its creativity the project has gained the glory of an outstanding auteur and conductor theater. Its performances follow two major concepts: some of them introduce the viewer to the works by lesser known classics, whereas others give new interpretation to popular opera masterpieces. It was the New Opera Theatre that staged the operas "Maria Stuart" by Donizetti, "Valley" by A. Catalani, "Two Foscaris" by J. Verdi and "Hamlet" by A. Thomas for the first time in Russia. "La Traviata" by J. Verdi and "Eugene Onegin" by Pyotr Tchaikovsky acquired auteur interpretation here.
Today, the New Opera repertoire includes works by Russian and Western classics, as well as original performances and operas of the 20th - 21st centuries. The latter ones are paid great attention to. The theater hosts music festivals, such as the International Festival "Two Masters are Two Worlds", dedicated to the 200th anniversary since the birth of Wagner and Verdi.
The New Opera Theatre is located at the address: 3/2, Karetny Ryad, the Hermitage Garden next to metro stations Tverskaya, Pushkinskaya, and Chekhovskaya.
