Overview

Sacred Stage: The Mariinski Theater

Also known as the Kirov Opera and Ballet Theater, the Mariinsky Theater, located in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg, is one of the world's most prestigious venues for music and dance. Built in 1859, the building briefly fell into disuse following the Soviet Revolution in 1917, but was reopened as a cultural center that brought high art to the people, and despite extensive damage during the Siege of Leningrad, the building was restored in 1944. Though it played host to some of Russia's most famous performers for over a century and a quarter, the Mariinsky's future became uncertain following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, but under the guidance of artistic director Valery Gergiev, the theater has re-established its reputation as one of the most vital centers for opera and ballet in the world, and attracts fans from all corners of the globe. Sacred Stage: The Mariinsky Theater is a documentary which offers a look at this beautiful home to the performing arts, as well as offering glimpses from its distinguished past and energetic present.
