3:35 pm
inside the theater the entire space was stripped from the bottom up the work proved more challenging than expected and a series of deadlines were set and missed the budget went over the initial figure and the opening night was delayed several times so was it worth the wait and is it money well spent. i think it certainly state of the art for the former's. the reception areas have been magnificent they restored gives you an absolutely wonderful feeling that. the acoustics are very good in the hall. it's very encouraging to see. a city where the arts culture take an absolutely major place in. public policy you know clearly no expense to be spared to make this place state of the art one of the finest theaters and europe. in the stone age it's very encouraging to see that something

3:39 pm
you can see one of the several dance studios that are situated in the attic space of the bolshoi concentrating is an important part of any performers life and early morning classes are a must to keep up technique precision and strength as athletes in every possible way competition is rife in the industry and the opening of the new season means the world's eyes are on the performers too. it's a once in a lifetime experience for me i'm. going out on to the stage and seeing it really. how big it is and how grand it is and how beautiful the restoration has been it's it's really once in a lifetime and. you know the only thing i hope is that i enjoy the experience because the pressure is on and you know i do demand a lot from myself as an artist as do all artists i feel so i hope i will be able

3:42 pm
to the on stage area now the first thing i notice is that the stage of the bolshoi is actually flat this means that the space is fully flexible here a full stage with a rake meaning an angle and intricate design has been built on top of the original floor anything can be achieved looking up and the space seems to go on for ever the flies holding a lot of scenery here me thinks i see a golden palace when exploring the area behind the scenes you really see the vast technical side that goes into such theater productions the whole process is like a large factory and it can look like organized chaos when a ballet or opera is in full flight. i fortunately managed to be given a ticket for tonight's performance you can still feel the excitement in the air for many including myself it's the first time they've stepped foot inside the historic
3:43 pm
