Youtube to Show the Bolshoi Theatre's Reopening

The official Bolshoi Theatre's channel on YouTube will be broadcasting live from the reopening ceremony and gala performance this Friday, October 28.

      The live translation will be available to viewers from 36 countries at 18.00 Moscow time on October 28. Besides Russians, the broadcast will be available to viewers in North, South and Central America. The viewers will be able to leave comments and video congratulations on the YouTube page. 

      The Bolshoi Theatre's historical stage will open after a capital reconstruction, which began on July 2005 and now is believed to be the most expensive theatre renovation project ever. 

      This truly historic event will unfold in the presence of state officials of all ranks, as well as celebrities, honorable guests and the press. There are not any tickets for that grand opening, the entrance is by invitation cards only. Hereby, the Bolshoi Theatre has denied some reports in press that some ticket companies and illicit touts caught selling invitations to the opening night for enormous sums of money, being close to two million roubles. 

      Besides the Internet, the gala perfomance will also be showcased on big screens in front of the theater building on Teatralnaya Square in central Moscow. And there will also be the live translation on Russian television (Russia2 and Russia24 channels).

      YouTube often shows live broadcasts of some important musical or cultural events, for example, live concerts by U2, Paul McCartney, James Blunt or the royal wedding ceremony between Prince William and Kate Middleton. But the Bolshoi Theatre's reopening is the first big Russian event to gain such world-wide translation.
