The Ekaterinburg theatre of opera and ballet will take primordial shape

16 декабря 2009 22:47

During forthcoming three years the Ekaterinburg theatre of opera and ballet will take primordial shape. It is planned to restore its historical appearance which met the first Ekaterinburg spectators who came for performance in 1912, the director of the theatre Andrey Shishkin informed.

Last reconstruction of the building was carried out in 1982. First of all it concerned external shape of the building which became «visiting card» of the Ural capital. The stage and the orchestra pit were not drastically changed.

Sketch project ordered by the theatre for realization by 2012, means returning of mouldings on the building, renewal of stalls in the big auditorium, acoustic system, musical instruments and furniture. Andrey Shishkin mentioned that in the orchestra pit there were chairs - coevals of the theatre, with tablets, dated 1912. Such old furniture is thought not to remain by celebration of centenary of the theatre.

The Head of Ekaterinburg Arkady Chernetsky will help to solve organizational problems connected with architecture of the building.

Centenary of the Theatre of opera and ballet should become a great event for Ekaterinburg and all country. Main directions of preparation of theatre for the anniversary were detected long ago. The primary direction is creative one. During 2010-2012 the theatre will stage a number of premieres one of the most essential of them will be the opera «Boris Godunov». Anniversary will be marked by gala concert in which not only actors of the Ekaterinburg theatre of opera and ballet, but also their colleagues from capital theatres are likely to take part.

Besides, the theatre is planning a number of tours - across Europe and to Southeast Asia
The second direction is «modernization». It includes buying of new musical instruments, and renovation of the facade of the building.

The stage of the theatre is likely to be reconstructed. The theatre will get modern scenic equipment. It is very serious question requiring large financial investments and much work which will take not one year, but preparation for its solving has already begun. For example, the theatre was recently visited by the representatives of the Austrian firm specializing in creation of scenic equipment. The firm found the theatre independently. Now the firm is going to offer its services.

Centenary of the theatre will be celebrated in two seasons.
