About


The opening of Mariinsky Theatre's new Concert Hall took place on 29 November 2006. It is the only theatre and concert venue of its kind in Russia, designed with the very latest developments in construction, and purpose-built to host concert programmes. With acoustic and technological design by Mr Toyota, the new hall ranks alongside the world’s finest concert venues. In April 2007 the Concert Hall opened its doors to the general public. Valery Gergiev timed the Mahler Symphonies series featuring the Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra to coincide with the event. This series was performed in full as part of the XV International Stars of the White Nights Festival. It celebrated one hundred years since the memorial concerts by the great Austrian composer and conductor in Saint Petersburg.

 

Seating capacity: 1,110
