Bolshoi Theater

Bolshoi Theater under Refurbishment

The Bolshoi Theater, home of the eponymously named opera and ballet, is currently undergoing renovation. Apparently the contractor is Christo.

Unfortunately, the ballet was not performing while I was there but I did see the opera The Golden Cockerell, by Rimsky-Korsakov. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that I'd seen and heard this opera 20 years ago in French as Le Coq D'or.

The two above images were taken several years after the renovation.
