Can anyone tell me when exactly this is going to start? Or isn't that known yet?


I would like to visit the theatre before the renovations, don't know if this will be possible, but I hope so.

The most precise I've read in one of the articles in the Tsiskaridze and Lopatkina appointments to the Vaganova Academy news thread is the end of 2014.

I would like to bump this thread, as I just scrutinized the place.  The theater REALLY needs a renovation, particularly in the outside. The green painting is peeling all over, and the wood work in windows and doors needs replacements.  Inside it doesn't really shows that much of wear and tear, but judging from the way renovations are being carried all over historical buildings around the city, it is obvious that the Mariinsky is due.

Enjoy St. Petersburg! I believe the renovation of the outside of Mariinsky I is tied up in red tape. I have not paid attention to that recently since the plan for it was so upsetting for me I just stopped paying attention then there was a small "revolt" of sorts over it.
