Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia

Founded in 1833, the Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg is one of the oldest theaters in Russia. In my opinion, the house does not have to shy away from the better known Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg with its world-famous Kirov Ballet Ensemble.

The Mikhailovsky Theater was given its historic name back in 2001 and in 2007 was named the most prestigious music theater in St. Petersburg. The refurbished luxury of the entrance hall and the auditorium particularly impressed me and the opera performance I attended (Figaro’s wedding by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) was world-class in terms of stage design, staging and vocal quality. By the way, the Mikhailovsky Theater also has its own ballet ensemble since 1933. I think a visit to a performance of this opera and ballet theater is worth considering for every city traveler. Enjoy!

Das 1833 gegründete Opern- und Balletttheater Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg gehört zu den ältesten Theatern Russlands. Ich finde, dass das Haus einen Vergleich mit dem bekannteren Mariinski Theater in St. Petersburg, trotz dessen weltweit berühmten Kirow Ballett Ensemble, nicht scheuen muss.

Das Mikhailovsky Theater erhielt 2001 seinen historischen Namen zurück und wurde 2007 zum renommiertesten Musiktheater St. Petersburgs gekürt. Der renovierte Luxus der Eingangshalle und des Auditoriums haben mich besonders beeindruckt und die von mir besuchte Opernaufführung (Figaros Hochzeit von Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) war in Bezug auf Bühnenbild, Inszenierung und Gesangsqualität Weltklasse. Übrigens das Mikhailovsky Theater verfügt seit 1933 ebenfalls über ein eigenes Ballettensemble. Ich finde der Besuch einer Aufführung dieses Opern- und Balletttheaters ist für jeden Städtereisenden eine Überlegung wert. Viel Vergnügen!
