The major concert programme of works by Dmitry Shostakovich, Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf with Konstantin Khabensky as the Narrator and Modest Musorgsky's grandiose opera Khovanshchina, recorded at different times over the years, were conducted by Valery Gergiev. The videos will be accessible on mariinsky.tv, Odnoklassniki and VKontakte for twenty-four hours after the start of the online broadcast.

On 10 April audiences of mariinsky.tv can see a rich musical evening – a Gala Concert marking 110 years since the birth of Dmitry Shostakovich that was recorded in 2016 on the day of the composer's birth. The programme opens with an early opus – Piano Trion in C Minor, written when he was seventeen while a student at the Petrograd Conservatoire. The trio was performed by young virtuosos and prize-winners of the XV Tchaikovsky Competition Pavel Milyukov (violin), Alexander Ramm (cello) and Sergei Redkin (piano). In the second half of the programme there will be works written by Shostakovich in 1948 – the hardest period of the composer's life – and which spent the next few years locked away "in the drawer": Violin Concerto No 1 and the song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry. The solos in the latter will be sung by Mariinsky Opera soloists Anastasia Kalagina (soprano), Ekaterina Sergeeva (mezzo-soprano) and Dmitry Voropaev (tenor).

The series of traditional Saturday broadcasts for family viewing will continue on 11 April at 12.00 with the Mariinsky Theatre broadcasting Sergei Prokofiev's symphonic tale Peter and the Wolf. At the request of viewers who did not see the last broadcasting of this concert, the theatre will be repeating the performance of Peter and the Wolf, in which the role of the Narrator was performed by the acclaimed theatre and film actor Konstantin Khabensky.

Later that day the Mariinsky Theatre and the international cultural project Russian Seasons are inviting audiences to an evening of opera. At 19.00 on the platforms mariinsky.tv and Stay home with Russian Seasons, as well as Odnoklassniki and VKontakte there will be a screening of Modest Musorgsky's folk musical drama Khovanshchina with its mass crowd scenes, historic costumes and sets by the renowned Moscow designer Fyodor Fedorovsky. This recording from 2012 was recorded by stars of the Mariinsky Theatre whose appearances onstage is a guarantee of its quality: performing the lead roles are Sergei Aleksashkin (Prince Ivan Khovansky), Vladimir Galouzine (Prince Andrei Khovansky), Yevgeny Akimov (Prince Vasily Golitsin), Nikolai Putilin (Shaklovity) and Vladimir Vaneyev (Dosifei). People's Artist of Russia Olga Borodina will be performing the role of Marfa, one of the finest in her repertoire and honed to perfect detail. Dreams of love and rage at being spurned, the humility of the novice and the passionate conviction of a dissenter who sacrifices herself in fire, the latent fire smouldering in the singer's voice will be carefully "swelled" by the orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev.

On 9 April at the request of audiences who did not have the opportunity to see previous broadcast, the Mariinsky Theatre is repeating its screening of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Golden Cockerel. The online broadcast will commence on mariinsky.tv, Odnoklassniki and VKontakte at 19.00 Moscow Time. The video will be accessible for twenty-four hours. In 2017 this recording was released on the Mariinsky label and brought Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theatre a Grammy award nomination in the category "Best Opera Recording" of the year.

This "conte-fable", as Rimsky-Korsakov and the librettist Vladimir Belsky referred to the opus, with its richly-coloured flavour of Pushkin's tale and a dose of sharp satire, was staged at the Mariinsky Theatre by Anna Matison. The stage director addresses her production to a contemporary audience, though she stresses that everyone will find some meaning for themselves in it.

The video recording of The Golden Cockerel was made at its first performances of the production in December 2014. The lead roles were performed by Vladimir Feliauer (Tsar Dodon), Aida Garifullina (the Queen of Shemakha), Andrei Serov (General Polkan), Andrei Ilyushnikov (Tsarevich Gvidon), Vladislav Sulimsky (Tsarevich Afron) and Andrei Popov (the Astrologer). The Mariinsky Orchestra was conducted by Valery Gergiev.

On 6 and 7 April the Mariinsky Theatre will be broadcasting two unique recordings online – a world premiere of Igor Stravinsky's symphonic opus Chant funèbre and Sergei Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet, in which the lead roles in different acts were performed by stars of the Mariinsky Theatre including Viktoria Tereshkina, Anastasia Matvienko, Olesya Novikova, Yevgeny Ivanchenko, Andrei Yermakov and Igor Kolb. The broadcasts will be made via the platform mariinsky.tv, the theatre's pages on Odnoklassniki and Vkontakte. Broadcasts begin at 19.00, Moscow Time.

The videos will be accessible to view for twenty-four hours.

On 6 April mariinsky.tv will be screening a performance conducted by Valery Gergiev with the Mariinsky Orchestra of Stravinsky's Chant funèbre, which had been considered lost until 2015. The work was written by Stravinsky at the very outset of his artistic career following the death of his teacher Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and was performed just once, in 1909, as part of the programme of the first Russian Symphony Concert, dedicated to the composer's memory. It was thought that the score was lost in Russia during the Revolution, and ever since that time Russian and international catalogues listed Chant funèbre with the remark "not published, lost". In the spring of 2015, when being moved from its historic building, the Sheet Music Library of the St Petersburg State Conservatory found a previously inaccessible store of sheet music. It was among other manuscript materials that the catalogue for the fifty-eight orchestral roles for Stravinsky's symphonic work was discovered. Based on this, a group of experts from the St Petersburg Conservatory reconstructed the score of Chant funèbre, entrusting the Mariinsky Theatre and maestro Gergiev with the world premiere. For the first time in more than one hundred years since its first performance this opus was heard and recorded at the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre on 2 December 2016. The concert programme also featured the symphonic suite from the opera The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Maiden Fevronia by Rimsky-Korsakov and music from Stravinsky's ballet The Firebird. Romeo and Juliet with choreography by Leonid Lavrovsky featuring three casts. That performance (20 April 2018) marked the artistic jubilee of Gennady Selyutsky. On that occasion, to honour the Mariinsky Theatre ballet-master and coach and Honoured Artist of Russia and the Tadzhik SSR, all of the solo male roles were performed by Gennady Naumovich Selyutsky's students – graduates from his class at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet and soloists with whom he worked at the Mariinsky Theatre.

The role of Romeo was performed successively by Yevgeny Ivanchenko (Act I), Andrei Yermakov (Act II) and Igor Kolb (Act III), that of Tybalt by Dmitry Pykhachov (Act I) and Danila Korsuntsev (Act II), that of Mercutio by Alexei Timofeyev (Act I) and Alexander Sergeyev (Act II), that of the Jester by Daniil Lopatin and that of the Troubadour by Yevgeny Konovalov. The role of Juliet was performed by Viktoria Tereshkina (Act I), Anastasia Matvienko (Act II) and Olesya Novikova (Act III).

Continuing its internet broadcasts, the Mariinsky Theatre is joining a new online platform as part of the Russian Seasons international project. On 4 April at 20.00 by popular demand there will be a screening of the ballet Cinderella by Sergei Prokofiev with Diana Vishneva, Vladimir Shklyarov and Ekaterina Konadaurova in the lead roles with Valery Gergiev conducting.

The broadcast will be accessible to view via mariinsky.tv and on the platform Stay home with Russian Seasons for twenty-four hours.

The video recording of the ballet Cinderella, choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky, was made in June 2013, and in 2016 it was released on the Mariinsky label, receiving rave reviews in the press and nominations for the prestigious ICMA prize. Unlike many predecessors who staged this ballet, Ratmansky proffered an interpretation of Prokofiev's immense score, nut no plot of a well-known fairytale. He set his heroine in a timeless space, albeit with elements of the everyday, where miracles are achieved not by beautiful fairies, but by a shrewd old bag-lady with a sack of oranges and accompanied by a suite of bullying punks. The depth of Prokofiev's masterpiece, its notes of anxiety and alarm and love of life are brought together by Ratmansky together with Valery Gergiev, Ilya Utkin, Yevgeny Monakhov and Elena Markovskaya in postmodernist ease in an ironic ballet. He choreographed a ballet that audiences laugh at, while the dancers, submitting to the nature of the game, discover new facets of their souls and have fun.

The broadcasts are available via Okko's platform "Art Online", established with the support of Sberbank (Savings Bank of Russia), and the Mariinsky Theatre's platform mariinsky.tv.

Broadcasts commence at 19:00 Moscow Time (GMT+3). The video recording will be accessible for twenty-four hours. On 2 April there will be a screening of the opera Eugene Onegin after the eponymous novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin. In his production, Stage Director Alexei Stepanyuk carefully reflects Tchaikovsky's score and its literary source, picking out the important details of Russian "life on the estate" and etiquette as was perceived at those times. The work, intended to be performed by young singers, is intended first and foremost for audiences who are only just beginning to discover the world of opera. The broadcast will be of a performance recorded in 2015 in which Pushkin's characters were embodied by the best young Mariinsky Opera soloists including Andrei Bondarenko (Eugene Onegin), Yekaterina Goncharova (Tatiana), Yevgeny Akhmedov (Lensky), Yekaterina Sergeyeva (Olga) and Eduard Tsanga (Prince Gremin). Valery Gergiev was the conductor.

On Sunday 5 April there will be a broadcast of another masterpiece – the ballet-féerie The Sleeping Beauty, created by the genius of two great maestri – Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Marius Petipa. The production, the culmination of ballet art in the 19th century, in this ideal construction brought together everything that had been crafted on the St Petersburg stage by the choreographer. The dance harmony was defined by balanced proportions of pantomime, genre and colourful scenes together with classical dance forms calculated on the impeccable logic of the development of the plot, from the corps to the solo entrance of the ballerina. The lead roles in the ballet, recorded in 2015, were performed by Alina Somova (Princess Aurora), Vladimir Shklyarov (Prince Désiré), Kristina Shapran (the Lilac Fairy), Sofia Ivanova-Skoblikova (the Diamond Fairy), Igor Kolb (the wicked fairy Carabosse), Oxana Skorik (Princess Florine) and Alexei Timofeyev (the Bluebird).

The week will commence with a symphony music programme on 30 March on mariinsky.tv with the Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev continuing to present symphonies by Tchaikovsky. Being performed are the Second, nicknamed by contemporaries as the Little Russian for its particular national flavour, and the Fifth Symphonies. The first part of the series All Tchaikovsky Symphonies, recorded in September 2019 at the Zaryadye Concert Hall in Moscow, has already been shown on mariinsky.tv, and its continuation has been scheduled for next week. In the year marking the one hundred and eightieth anniversary of the birth of the composer his works will be performed particularly frequently as part of the Mariinsky Theatre's programmes.

On 31 March there will be a screening of one of the Mariinsky Theatre's "calling cards", the legendary ballet The Bronze Horseman by Reinhold Glière about the city on the River Neva with a stellar cast of performers. The lead roles in the performance, recorded in 2016, were danced by Vladimir Shklyarov (Eugene), Viktoria Tereshkina (Parasha), Danila Korsuntsev (Peter I) and Ekaterina Kondaurova (Queen of the Ball). The conductor was Valery Gergiev. Created in 1949 by the choreographer Rostislav Zakharov, the ballet The Bronze Horseman appeared in a new stage version in the spring of 2016 as part of the international ballet festival Mariinsky. Zakharov's choreography was passed on to dancers of the Mariinsky Ballet by teachers from an older generation who had performed in The Bronze Horseman in the Soviet period, while new elements of the ballet were created by the choreographer Yuri Smekalov who gave the production a more contemporary sheen.

Yet another stellar cast awaits viewers with Camille Saint-Saëns' opera Samson et Dalila in a production by Yannis Kokkos – this recording from 2016 will be shown on mariinsky.tv on 1 April. The title roles in the performance were sung by Mariinsky Opera soloist Ekaterina Semenchuk, one of the most highly sought-after mezzo-sopranos in the world, and the acclaimed American tenor Gregory Kunde. The role of the High Priest of Dagon was performed by Roman Burdenko, that of Abimélech by Mikhail Petrenko and that of the Old Hebrew by Stanislav Trofimov. The magnificent cast was conducted by Valery Gergiev.
