The Bolshoi Theater Repertoire
Throughout time the Bolshoi Theater has distinguished itself not only by the high quality of the performances, but also by the variety of the performances. Even while it was part of the Imperial Theaters of the Russian Empire, drama and music performances took place on two stages every week.
Like in many other European countries, initially the theater arts were only meant for the higher classes of society - royalty, aristocrats. It was perfectly normal for them to watch several performances in one day. Since the high class viewers didn't want to watch the same thing over and over again, and demanded variety, theaters all over Europe, including the Bolshoi Theater, had to have a large repertoire. The Bolshoi Theater would also add pieces choreographed and made by their European colleagues to keep the public entertained.
Today, performances at the Bolshoi Theater aren't only for the higher classes, but by all layers of society. The Bolshoi Theatre has a big variety of ballets and operas. Besides ballet and opera, the theater also holds orchestra and band concerts. Of course, the Bolshoi Theater is known for its ballet first. The Bolshoi ballet troupe has been considered the best in the world for many years now. The ballets "The Nutcracker" and "Swan lake" have charmed and captivated hundreds of thousands of viewers all over the world. The Bolshoi ballet troupe travels around the world at least once each year.
The Repertoire and Prices
Historically, the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theater has grown very large. But some performances are still more popular than others. Some of the more popular ballets are The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Giselle. As far as operas go, Mozart's Don Giovanni and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin (Evgenii Onegin) are the most popular. Due to the popularity, and the high demand for tickets, prices for these events are usually higher, and sell out relatively quickly.
