About the Show Less...

To celebrate further the Shostakovich Centenary this year, Valery Gergiev brings his highly acclaimed Mariinsky Theatre to the London Coliseum. Read More >

The Mariinsky Theatre, known for a time as the Leningrad State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and then renamed ‘Kirov’ by Stalin’s decree, was closely associated with Shostakovich. The Company has a special insight into the composer’s works and life in St Petersburg and embraces this legacy. This festival will contain two of his stage works that were premiered by the Company, The Golden Age and Leningrad Symphony. The Golden Age will be a new staging of this ballet specially created for the centenary year.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
