The Bolshoi Theater's 2005/06 season will open for the first time on the New Stage
The Bolshoi Theater's 2005/06 season will open for the first time on the New Stage, built two years ago to make the renovation of the main building possible, Managing Director Anatoli Iksanov said Tuesday. Iksanov said performances would resume September 10 with last season's production of the Giaccomo Puccini opera "Madam Butterfly." The new season's operatic premieres will include British director Graham Vick's production of Amadeus Mozart's "The Magic Flute," staged to mark the composer's 250th birth anniversary, and veteran director Boris Pokrovsky's production of "War and Peace" by Sergei Prokofiev. Prokofiev's ballet "Cinderella" will return to the Bolshoi's repertory in an interpretation by young choreographer Yuri Posokhov. Yuri Grigorovich, former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, is going to revive his production of Dmitri Shostakovich's "The Golden Age." A festival devoted to Maya Plisetskaya will run at the Bolshoi November 16 to 20, when this internationally renowned ballerina will be celebrating her birthday. The program includes two single-act ballets - Rodion Shchedrin's "Carmen Suite," after George Bizet, and Igor Stravinsky's "Jeu de Cartes" ("Card Game") - as well as the regular-length "The Swan Lake" by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and "Don Quixote" by Ludwig Minkus. The Plisetskaya festival will culminate with a Kremlin Palace gala choreographed by Dmitri Chernyakov, who is also going to put on Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" with the Bolshoi this season. The Bolshoi Ballet's scheduled tour in South Korea, October 2 to 10, will feature Aram Khachaturyan's "Spartacus" and Adolphe Adam's "Giselle." Next spring, the company will be performing in Britain, March 26 to April 23, and in Japan, May 1-25
