From October 6 to 14, 2018, as part of the Mariinsky for Children project, the best ballet and opera performances for the whole family will be presented on the Primorsky Stage.

On October 6, 2018 the program will be opened by the colorful Le Corsaire ballet to the music of Adolphe Adan staged by the chief choreographer of the theatre Eldar Aliyev (with traditional interpolations handed down from Marius Petipa’s productions). The love story of the corsair Conrad and charming Medora will be told by artists of the Mariinsky Ballet of the Primorsky Stage. The performance will be accompanied by the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage conducted by Anton Torbeev.

The Tale of Tsar Saltan, the most cheerful opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, will be presented to the public on October 7, 2018. The producers of the Primorsky Stage performance have managed to preserve the cheerful, carnival spirit of the opera. Director Daria Panteleeva and art director Petr Okunev have shown deep knowledge and respect for Russian fairy-tale traditions. The vivid images will be performed by the soloists of the Mariinsky Opera of the Primorsky Stage, with Valery Trubin-Leonov at the conductor’s stand of the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage.

On October 10 and 11, 2018 for the first time in the new season, the unquestionable hit of the theatre’s repertoire, The Nutcracker ballet by Pyotr Tchaikovsky will be presented. Regardless of the season, it always gives a feeling of a magical holiday and of wonderful events still to come. Eldar Aliyev’s expressive choreography, familiar music, magnificent costumes and scenery make this Primorsky Stage production a continued success. Anton Torbeev will perform at the conductor’s stand of the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage.

On October 13, 2018 the public will see Bambi and In the Jungle one-act ballets with choreography by Anton Pimonov.

The artists of the Mariinsky Ballet of the Primorsky Stage will personify the images of favorite fairy-tale heroes on the stage. The Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage will be conducted by Valery Trubin-Leonov.

The Mariinsky to Children program will be closing on October 14, 2018 with Die Zauberflöte opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart staged by Alain Maratrat. Written in the form of a Singspiel, a popular form that includes both singing and spoken dialogue, this beautiful fairy tale is equally loved by both children and adults. The conductor’s stand of the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage will be occupied by guest conductor of the Theater Anton Shaburov who has been recently awarded the First prize of the Jeunesses Musicales International Competition.

Picking a repertoire for children and teenagers is one of the priorities of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

On September 11, 14 and 15, 2018 the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre will see the premiere show of The Tsar’s Bride opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. It was composed on the basis of the same-name historical verse drama by Lev Mei, which narrates a historic episode of Ivan the Terrible’s third marriage

On September 11, 2018 the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre saw the first premiere of the season: The Tsar’s Bride opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was presented to the public. The premiere was created especially for the Primorsky Stage and took place on the opening day of the Eastern Economic Forum, becoming the central event of his cultural program. The show was visited by Olga Golodets, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation for Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The main parts in the performance were sung by the leading soloists of the Mariinsky Opera of the Primorsky Stage: Anastasia Kikot, Laura Bustamante, Alex Bublik, Sergei Pleshivtsev, Roman Krukovic, Alexei Kostyuk, Alena Diyanova, Eugene Plekhanov. The musical director of the production Pavel Smelkov noted that The Tsar’s Bride opera was ideally suited to the troupe of the Primorsky Stage and that it enabled the soloists to show their talents to best advantage. The musical consultant of the production, leading accompanist of the Mariinsky Opera Irina Soboleva highlighted the advantages of the troupe of the Primorsky Stage: youth, energy and robust ambition.

In the premiere performance, the Mariinsky Orchestra and the Chorus of the Primorsky Stage were involved; leader conductor Pavel Smelkov took the panel. During their work on the show, the directors tried to avoid clichés, those musical and semantic changes that have taken place in the opera over the long years of its stage life. "The Tsar’s Bride opera was tremendously popular both in the USSR and in contemporary Russia, but the musical material has taken a turn for the worse during this period. Our primary task was to return to the composer’s pace, that is, to make the opera the way he wanted to hear it, for the first time in the recent sixty performances of this opera”, Irina Soboleva noted.

The scenery and costumes produced in the workshops of the Mariinsky Theatre attracted the attention of the public even at the stage of rehearsals: the audience compared the production with the films in the style of fantasy. The producers noted that such parallels were not scaring them; on the contrary, they meant potential attraction of new audiences. “As for the scenic design and costumes, I wanted to convey the spirit of the era and to get rid of the unnecessary details that mean nothing both for our story and for the characters’ images. Our performance is not historically accurate, there’s place for stylization, fantasy. Therefore, I believe that the association with The Game of Thrones is very good”, said Pyotr Okunev, the author of the scenography and costumes.

The creation of a performance capable of capturing a modern spectator and of making them fall in love with opera became one of the goals of the directors working on the project. “In The Tsar’s Bride opera, there is everything: Russian lyricism, almost Wagnerian drama, the emerging symbolism. We have managed to brush away age-old dust from the images: there’s a passion in opera, a very bright human drama. We tried to make the history modern, congenial and understandable to us in terms of emotional, sensual content. It’s important that every spectator coming to see the play would find something of their own in it”.

Pavel Smelkov has emphasized the special significance of this particular opera by Rimsky-Korsakov taking its place in the repertoire of the Primorsky Stage: "The Tsar’s Bride opera, though cleared of any extrinsic features, still remains a Russian historical opera, and Vladivostok hasn’t seen such an opera before. There was a lot of Tchaikovsky, a lot of fabulous Rimsky-Korsakov, but this is a serious, terrible era. This opera will show the public new facets of the Russian opera repertoire”.

The premiere shows of The Tsar’s Bride opera will take place on the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre on September 14 and 15, 2018.
