Spend an Evening at the Bolshoi

The "golden collection" of ballet and opera will be broadcast online free

Bolshoi Theater

The Bolshoi Theater, like every other theater in Moscow, has had to close its doors until mid-April (if not longer). But to keep up the spirits of all ballet and opera lovers, they are putting up six of their best performances on YouTube for free, starting with "Swan Lake" this Friday.

All the performances from the "golden collection" are the best of the best, impecably performed and beautifully filmed. You can enjoy "The Nutcracker," "Sleeping Beauty," "Boris Godunov" and three other productions from now until April 4.

Each broadcast will take place on the theater's YouTube channel at 7 p.m. Moscow time (noon in New York, 4 p.m. in London). If you miss it, it will be available free of charge for 24 hours after the broadcast.

Sit back and enjoy. You've got the best seat in the house. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
