21 May – 21 July, 2010 – The Mariinsky Theatre.


Russia’s greatest festival of music – the eighteenth Stars of the White Nights festival – opens its packed programme celebrating the Year of Russia and France and France in Russia 2010 on 21 May at two venues. At the Mariinsky Theatre at 18:00 there will be an evening of ballet including the theatre’s recent repertoire acquisition – Bizet and Shchedrin’s Carmen-Suite under the baton of Valery Gergiev with Yekaterina Kondaurova in the title role. At the Concert Hall at 21:00 renowned French actor Gérard Depardieu will be performing as the Narrator in Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex, while dazzling mezzo Elena Zhidkova will be performing solo in Berlioz’ vocal symphony cycle Nuits d’été. Valery Gergiev will be conducting the programme. Depardieu, a friend and fan of the Mariinsky Theatre will be performing in Russia for the first time as part of the Year of Russia and France and France in Russia as the narrator in an opera production, a role new for both him and his fans.

Continuing the Festival’s “French” programme, internationally acclaimed violinist Nikolaj Znaider will be performing on 22 May at 17:00 at the theatre’s Concert Hall. He will be performing the popular Méditation – an intermezzo for solo violin and orchestra – from the opera Thaïs by French composer Jules Massenet as well as Edward Elgar’s Violin Concerto, now regarded as the musician’s calling card.

Star of the Mariinsky Opera Company Anna Netrebko will be performing as Micaëla in the opera Carmen on 23 May, the role of Don José to be sung by acclaimed Italian tenor Massimo Giordano, with whom Anna has performed this season in Paris, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.

Concerts featuring French pianist Hélène Grimaud planned for the Festival on 23, 27 and 28 May have been cancelled due to the performer’s illness. The theatre has asked many renowned performers to come to the Festival’s assistance and perform in place of Hélène Grimaud.

On 23 May Alexei Volodin will be performing the solo in Ravel’s Piano Concerto.

On 27 May the charismatic pianist Denis Matsuev, the darling of St Petersburg audiences and a frequent guest at the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre, will be giving a recital. The programme of his recital will repeat the programme of his concert at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire on 16 May: Beethoven’s famous Appassionata, sonatas by Schubert and Grieg and Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz. This concert by the highly acclaimed pianist will not be his only appearance at the Festival. On 16 June he will be performing the solo in Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto.

On 28 May at the Concert Hall, the Festival will be presenting the young and highly promising Russian violinist Alyona Bayeva.

The first weeks of the Festival will see the theatre’s renowned soloists Vladimir Galuzin and Olga Borodina perform their finest roles. On 26 May Galuzin will be performing as Herman in Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades (production by Yuri Temirkanov); and on 2 June Olga Borodina will be appearing as Marfa alongside Galuzin as Prince Andrei Khovansky in Modest Musorgsky’s opera Khovanshchina, one of the most significant works in the Mariinsky Theatre’s repertoire.

The Festival runs until 21 July, and for eight weeks will be presenting over ninety operas and ballets, concerts of symphony and chamber music and recitals by international stars of world music. The Festival will include not just opera and symphony programmes of classical music but works from various other genres as well, such as the musical drama The Infernal Comedy featuring John Malkovich.
