5 Peep Into The Bolshoi Theatre

Peep Into The Bolshoi Theatre

Posted on July 13, 2011 by

In three months, the first performances at the Bolshoi Theatre will begin. The Theatre currently looks like a big anthill, but a look inside won’t cause any harm.

An Artist’s impression of the outer view of the theatre.

In the hall, one gets fascinated at its greatness and trim.

The ceiling of the auditorium

Its just a few in the audience who know what lies behind the curtains. The Auditorium is just but the tip of an iceberg, the other parts of the theatre are hidden. Here is the communication section under the stage. Scenes are changed from here.

Behind the scene in the huge expanse from the roof to the ground level hang metal cables mounted on tons of metallic tubes beams and forms for future decorations and lights.

The theatrical belfry is an envy to many churches and monasteries.

One of the consoles that controls the winch, which rises and lowers the cables on the beams.

You can safely assemble space crafts and rockets in the theatre. The floors here seem like small cells.

This is the gap between the stage and the hall. It is covered with a fire-proof membrane which can be raised up and let down like a curtain. It only falls down during a fire to separate the hall from the stage.

    A really weak postig. I was hoping for a lot more pitcures of the theatre. This really didn’t show much at all..

    Impressive Theatre please show more of it in the future.

    Russian city rooftops are always interesting to me.

    This was more of a behind and above what’s normally seen kind of post than it was about just the Bolshoi Theatre.

    So it is misleading in the beginning of the post(which happens often here on ER) but it’s still interesting just the same, thanks.

    The sky is prettier and more interesting than the Bolshoi (or Moscow or any city).
