After a six-year restoration, they are opening the Bolshoi Theater.

This is a foyer. Now the parts of the complex are connected by underground and above-ground passages.

      Unless nobody watches…. ;)
      I think the furniture is just a part of original decor, it was hard enough to restore the historical furniture to subject it wear and tear.

    It’s kind of sad to see that they’ve spent a lot of money restoring what is truly a beautiful theater only to put what appears to be a ProTools Audio Mix system at the Front Of House mix position in the main room. –They could have done better at this….a LOT better.

    The restoration work and the original, ridiculous amount of bling are both damn impressive.

    Lovely work, but why the reduction in capacity?

    Gold gilding isn’t really to my taste, but at least it never tarnishes that way it never needs to be polished.

    Six years to do the work? Probably could have done it in three if not for corruption and graft. But hey, that’s life in Russia!

    Damn I miss the place!
