The Bolshoi theatre closes 243rd season. The curtain – premiere of the Opera-bouffe by Jacques Offenbach “Pericoli”, reports channel “MIR 24”.

From political satire, which is in the original version of the Opera, the authors of the play wanted to leave. Moved the action from the Spanish colonies of the XVIII century in Peru into a modern metropolis.

“The score of the original, as such, does not exist. There from performance to performance, the score is modified. And we also absolutely fresh orchestration created especially for this performance,” said conductor Philipp Chizhevsky.

Premiere performances will take place on the Chamber stage named after Boris Pokrovsky.
