It took them 6 years and over 700 million dollars to reconstruct the Bolshoi Theater and you could read about it in one of our previous articles. These are some more photos for you to check and let’s begin with the lighting:
That display on the outside of the building, how tricky is that.
I have heard of the Bolshoi ballet and theater since I was a child, it is more than famous.
I am still accused of being a child.
Bolshoi, real Bolshoi!
Stunning national treasure.
Reposts, English Russia has it!
Nice restoration. Far as the light show and the fire show – why? Just takes away from a beautiful building.
That is a beautiful place. It took many artisans and a very long time to restore it. GOOD JOB!
I remember as a child in 1962 (I think) watching the Bolshoi Ballet Company perform on the Ed Sullivan TV show. That was an extraordinary occurrence because it was not but a year or so after the Cuban Missile Crisis. That was a big deal at the height of the Soviet Union/USA Cold war. I am glad peace prevailed 30 years later. My Mother, God rest her soul, liked ballet and insisted I watch it with her. I am happy that I did, she talked about it all the next day.
