Symphonic suite Scheherazade, Op. 35
Act 2 from the opera Madama Butterfly (concert performance)
Due to the international situation, the decision has been made to move back the performance by the China National Opera and Dance Drama Theatre to 11 February, a more suitable time when the audience will be able to attend the performance without experiencing personal anxiety.
The Mariinsky Theatre will be glad to present its audiences with a new concert programme featuring its own leading soloists. Tickets remain valid.
The China Orchestra of the National Theatre of Opera and Dance Drama, familiar to St Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre audiences for its staging of Confucius, presented in December 2019, will be returning on tour to St Petersburg and will of course be met by St Petersburg audiences closer to the end of the 2019-20 season.
