The Mariinsky Theatre will remain closed to the public until 14 June 2020 on the basis of a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation “On the determination of the order to continue active measures to ensure the sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population within subjects of the Russian Federation in connection with the spread of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19)”.
Performances and concerts planned for the period from 18 March to 14 June 2020 have been postponed to later dates this current season and the next in accordance with the following timetable.
Tickets for postponed performances and concerts remain valid and need not be returned. Should you wish to return tickets, this is how to do so.
Due to the current temporary ban on hosting mass events, the Mariinsky Theatre has been forced to postpone the XXVIII Stars of the White Nights Music Festival.
It is already impossible to imagine the cultural life of St Petersburg without the festival, which was founded in 1993, and so the theatre’s board is doing everything possible to reschedule the forum to new dates.
The playbill for the festival, which this year was due to run from 17 May to 26 July, listed many stellar names and vivid productions, and the theatre will be attempting to retain most of the events that were planned.
We would like to thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you once again in our auditoriums, while in the meantime we would like to remind you of the online broadcasts on the platform mariinsky.tv, where we continue to screen recordings of the Mariinsky Theatre’s finest productions and concerts.
The Mariinsky Theatre's box-offices are closed until 14 June 2020.
Cash refunds for cancelled performances via theatre box-offices will take place as soon as the quarantine to visit the theatre is lifted.
