The whole programs and separate acts tour every year in more tham 20 countries of the world performing not only in the circuses, but on the theatre stages, in the cabarets and in the theme parks.

Mariinsky Opera and Ballet Theatre (St. Petersburg)

The history of the Mariinsky Ballet Company dates from 1783. The Theatre was named the Mariinsky Theatre after Alexander II?s wife Maria. According to contemporaries, it was "the finest theatre in Europe". The theatre building was twice reconstructed in the 19th century. Victor Shroeter, head architect at the Department of The Imperial Theatres, redesigned the back-stage areas between 1884 and 1886. Between 1894 and 1896, the engineer Smirnov carried out restoration work on the auditorium. A new wing was added to the main facade, with a vestibule, grand staircases and foyer. New wings were also built to the right and left of the main building.

The theatre's magnificent decor has survived almost unchanged Mariinsky Opera and Ballet Theatre (St. Petersburg)to the present day. Dazzling white sculptures, lustrous gilt and light blue drapings and upholstery all combine to create the beautiful and unusual colour scheme of the Mariinsky's auditorium. Above is the Italianate ceiling, designed by Professor Dusi and painted by Fracioli, and a magnificent three-tiered bronze chandelier, shaped like Monomakh's cap and burning with the fire of a thousand crystal pendants. The chandelier and candelabra were a gift from the mechant Pleske, who was decorated with a gold medal " in recognition of his special services to the arts".

The unique curtain, an emblem of the Mariinsky Theatre, was created in 1914 by the famous designer Alexander Golovin. Previously dark red, its colour scheme was altered to blue in 1952 by the artists Simon Virsaladze and Mikhail Zandin, in keeping with the general tone of the auditorium's decor. During the Second World War, more than twenty shells struck the theatre building, yet by the autumn of 1944 it had already been restored to its former glory.
In the late 1960's, the stage was rebuilt in the course of further reconstruction work carried out by Sergei Gelfer, from the foundations right up to the flies. The rising floor and other technical improvements offer new opportunities for the positioning of the orchestra and permit highly complicated stage effects. The passage of time, however, necessitates the constant renewal of the stage machinery and the theatre is currently undergoing yet another technical reconstruction programme.

The Russian National Dance Show "Kostroma" (Moscow)

If you ask any non-Russian what they associate with Russian culture, they will probably come up with a list that includes the Balalaika, vodka, Cossack dancing, 'matryoshka' nesting dolls, and perhaps perestroika.

But of course, it is far richer than any of these clichés - and from June 15th to September 15th at the concert hall of Cosmos Hotel you can see for yourself just how rich, at the Russian National Dance Show to be performed by the Russian National Ballet Company 'Kostroma'.

Having already won the hearts of audiences around the globe, from Russia to Australia, this incredible dance show will present in its most refined form Russian traditional performance art. The programme cleverly, and with great prowess, unites lyrical sketches with elements of folklore and ancient Russian epic, whilst preserving the flavour of both Soviet and contemporary Russia.

The show is presented against a backdrop of panoramic sets that reflect in turn the spirit of imperial pre-revolutionary Russia, the passion of socialist zeal, the patriotism and unity of wartime, and the sparkling talent and richness of modern Russia. From orthodox to secular to heroic, this spectacular show offers a compelling insight The Russian National Dance Show into the traditions, culture and history of a great country.

The show is, in its own right, an aesthetic journey into Russia's deep history. The programme includes a varied mix of traditional national dance and contemporary ballet pieces.

President of the Russian National Ballet Company 'Kostroma' and producer of "The Russian National Dance Show", the Honored worker of culture Elena Tsarenko believes that foreign guests have now an opportunity to get acquainted with the elevated culture based on the folk material alongside with the trite folklore that is widely presented to the foreign guests coming to Moscow. "Our project is super expensive as we are employing the best modern special effects. The music is composed specifically for the show and is recorded with the folk instrument orchestra named after Osipov. The costumes are all decorated with handmade embroidery. Besides, we use so called "live pictures": rear-video-projection instead of the sets. We made them three-dimensional".
