The Mikhailovsky Theatre on tour in Japan

The Mikhailovsky Theatre first toured Japan over 30 years ago. Since then Japanese audiences have always greeted our performers with enthusiasm, and the winter tour has become a wonderful tradition. This year, during the Christmas and New Year holidays, performers from St Petersburg will again be offering Japanese theatregoers a joyful encounter with music and ballet.

The upcoming guest performances open on 3 December with a concert given by the theatre’s chamber orchestra. The special holiday programme will feature music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonio Vivaldi, Franz Schubert, George Handel, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky. 19 concerts are scheduled to be held in 8 Japanese cities. The orchestra will gain more members closer to New Year. The theatre’s large symphony orchestra will perform a Christmas concert, as well as Ludwig van Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, which has become a permanent fixture in the holiday performances in Japan. Both the chamber and the symphony orchestra concerts will feature the theatre’s leading opera soloists: Marina Tregubovich, Svetlana Moskalenko, Dmitry Karpov and Nikolay Kopylov.

The ballet troupe’s guest performances will take place from 3 January to 15 January. The shows will begin with a festive gala-concert, including excerpts from classical ballets. Theatregoers will also be able to enjoy outstanding productions from the theatre’s repertoire: Le Corsaire, which is being performed for the first time for Japanese audiences, and the celebrated Swan Lake, which is eagerly awaited every year.
