In turn, the Minister of Culture of France Franck Riester said that he was glad to take part in the project. “Russian Seasons will not only allow us to demonstrate the richness of Russian culture, but also present an evidence of fruitful cooperation between our countries”, as Riester emphasized.



The opening ceremony of the Russian Seasons was held at the Odeon Theatre. After the ceremony, the State Theatre of Nations presented its performance of “Uncle Vanya” based on the play by Anton Chekhov. This is a joint work of Moscow actors with the French director Stephan Braunschweig. The main roles were played by Evgeny Mironov (Voinitsky), Elizaveta Boyarskaya (Elena Andreevna), Victor Verzhbitsky (Serebryakov) and Anatoly Bely (Astrov).

The program of Russian Seasons in Paris includes the Gabrielle CHANEL ballet of the prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre Svetlana Zakharova, the Masterpieces of New Art exhibition from the Morozov Collection of the Pushkin Museum, the Tretyakov Gallery and the Hermitage, many concerts of the Mariinsky Theatre, Music Hall and the Grand Symphony Orchestra. As a part of the festival, the Patriarchal Choir of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior will perform in the churches of Paris and Versailles, concerts of the soloists of the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre and scholarship holders of the Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation for Cultural and Humanitarian Programs will be held in Strasbourg.

The Krasnoyarsk Dance Ensemble of Siberia will perform in Bordeaux, the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theatre - in Marseille, ballet dancers from Bashkiria will come to Dijon, Boris Eifman's St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre will perform in Nice, and Pyatnitsky Russian Folk Choir - in Toulouse.
