St. Petersburg
April 6, 2021

Valery Gergiev will hold the Stravinsky's Days in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Concerts and performances will be held around a memorable date: April 6 marks the 50th anniversary of the composer's death.  

The whole of today's anthology of Stravinsky at the Mariinsky Theater has been put on the poster for The Days. Spectators will be able to attend the ballets of the Diaghilev period: Petrushka and The Firebird by Mikhail Fokine, The Rite of Spring by Vaslav Nijinsky, The Wedding by Bronislava Nijinska and Apollo by George Balanchine. On the New Stage, one-act ballets by modern choreographers are given: Playing Cards and Pulcinella by Ilya Zhivoi, Symphony in Three Movements by Radu Poklitaru. The staged "Story of a Soldier" will be shown in the Concert Hall, where ballet soloist and choreographer Alexander Sergeev will make his debut as a reader.

​ The Stravinsky Foyer in the new building of the Mariinsky Theater will host an exposition recreating the office of Fyodor Ignatievich, the father of the composer and soloist of the Imperial Opera (the windows of the foyer just overlook the house where the Stravinsky family lived). All items on display are owned by Stravinsky Family Fund. Before the start of ballets and evening concerts, the composer's piano music will be performed thereby young pianists - students, students and graduate students of Petr Laula.
