Bolshoi Drama Theatre (BDT)

Bolshoi Drama Theatre (BDT)

Detailed description

The Russian State Academic Bolshoi Drama Theatre in St. Petersburg, founded in 1918, is one of the first theatres created after the October revolution. The building of the theatre located on the Fontanka River embankment is stunningly beautiful, and the interior of the theatre was completely restored a few years ago, so we can safely say that the Bolshoi Drama Theatre will not leave anyone indifferent. 

The Bolshoi Drama Theatre has three stages. The main stage, for an audience of 750, and the small one, for 70 persons, are located in a historic building on the Fontanka embankment, the former Suvorin Theatre. In 2005, the 282-seat Kamennoostrovsky Theatre, the oldest surviving wooden theatre in Russia, became the second stage of BDT.

During the high tourist season, the theatre shows performances of classical Russian ballet. You are offered to see

"Swan Lake"
