Recently Wall Street Journal published a piece devoted to the newly reconstructed glorious look of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Here are the photos
Six years, two contractors, $720 million dollars, and millions misspent from 2005, Bolshoi Theater will open its doors to public in the splendor of the resurrected pre-revolutionary interior. Turning 231 this year, Bolshoi theater now boasts orchestra pit large enough for Wagner, private showers for prima ballerinas, and a special padded stage to soften the tapping of the feet in the Dance of the Little Swans. One of the Russian arcs of art, history , and splendor is back in the ranks of the greatest classical stages of the world. A must see when in Moscow, and to learn more go to the Gregory L.
