hello and welcome to the must go out so in this week's program we'll be exploring the magnificence of both so i think it's up to six years the main stage of the historical landmark has been dogged but now it's going to ring chandeliers a shining once again so join me martin andrews as we explore the historical and magnificent building that fuses its classic original designs with modern technology state's craft and high tech facilities as the main cultural symbol of russia the bolshoi theatre has finally returns to its glory striking day or night illuminated exterior now shuns proud after years of being covered by scaffolding canvas and
other building materials it took six years and billions of rubles but finally the historic bolshoi theater is reopened to nurture and showcase the present and future of russian and international talent. watched by millions in russia and around the world the opening dollar performance in october was an exclusive invitation of the event as well as various political figures international celebrities and russian ballet and opera veterans the heads of milan's the skull theatre vienna state opera and london's covent garden opera house are among the first high profile guests to officially visit the newly reopened theater the bolshoi doesn't translate to marge or grant. the company was founded in seven hundred seventy six by russian prince peter little soft english entrepreneur. michael maddox following
a decree by empress catherine the great seven hundred eighty the construction of the first theater was completed it was destroyed by fire a reconstructed several times the newly reopened main building of the bolshoi we see today looks exactly as it was back in eight hundred fifty six when it was opened to mark the carnation of the empress alexander the second back then they quickly became not only the temple of arts but also a place where important state events who hosted. after the revolution it served as a political gathering place for the bullshit party and during world war two it was bombed by the nazis and suffered considerable damage nevertheless the main building hadn't undergone any major renovation in over a century so when it was closed in two thousand and five the building was in critical condition this really falling apart but now after restoration which ranks as the most meticulous and expensive in the history of theater the bolshoi is finally taken for business.
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's certainly state of the art for the performers. 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 it's in europe. in the stone age it's very encouraging to
see that something else are very high priority there obviously way the long time you consider for a lot of effort and and it's absolutely beautiful it shows are from the bolshoi is it shows all the bravado all the colorful. and the dancers so i think it's perfect why as a foreigner when you think of moscow it's one of the the things that you think of. it's one of the most famous landmarks and so for us really interested to go inside and see what it's like to see the striking interiors with your own eyes is quite something you really feel as if you're back in the ground times of the russian empire the designs here are breathtaking hundreds of spruce with anil's were imported from the austrian alps to replace those ripped out by the bolsheviks. so decorations were also remade from scratch in a special look shop in moscow ministry. this is the the whitehall located just of
the entrance of the theater over twenty billion rubles were allocated to the renovation of the theater that's around seven hundred million dollars vast sums of money were spent on new additions like escalators lifts hydraulics back stage as well as a complete overhaul of the structure and interior designs the frescoes and vast quantities of gold leaf were replaced and i even heard various materials were even washed with vodka and polished this girl tells. the bolshoi has been associated with ballet from its beginnings. will famous one make premiered on its stage on the fourth of march eighteenth seventy seven of the staples of the boss or repertoire include tchaikovsky sleeping beauty and the nutcracker adams coffee s romeo and juliet leanne's spartacus the theater is also known for its opera productions of course. oh.
this season which is the two hundred thirty six in the boss was history teaches such classical performances as borders cordoned off common and tosca to mention just a few the company tours a lot being an important source of cultural prestigious in the brochure also collaborate with the world's most famous the it is. the sky is the first international gas company on the bolshoi's newly reopened main stage and an impressive exhibition of costumes and italian theater is displayed in the foyer as possible because they're sure the relationship and collaboration between the two theaters has a long history in the past century our opera singers went to training at the scarlet dancers from the scarlet came to practice at the bolshoi and now we don't only exchange companies who also work together in organizing museum exhibit.
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 early morning classes are a must to keep up technique precision and strength as athletes in every possible way competition is right in the industry and the opening of the new season means the world's eyes are on the performers to. it's a once in a lifetime experience or for me it's. 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
to. enjoy it you know and really kind of basking in the in the moment the bolshoi is in fact a repertory theater being that it rotates a number of different productions and popular they are the first few months of the faces calendar is sold out already. also is not just there it's a. complex everywhere you look there are hundreds of our doors of the year the hallways of this stage is a rehearsal room occurred in the upper levels of. we can see around her so for an upcoming performance of sleeping beauty in the performers can get used to dancing and performing in the full cost more importantly they can adjust to the full sized hands the rake on the floor dancing on an angle is not
a. microphone in hands the creative staff give directions to the dances problems are ironed out costumes sometimes adjusted and staging slightly changed with many children in this production everything is right several times and although discipline is apparent the still a sense excitement and joy in the air. as rehearsals are underway backstage teams are also racing against the clock to meet various stand lines here we can see the wardrobe department just look at the wonderful detail and imagination goes into these designs. hundreds of costumes a needed for each production also by hand and made to measure for each performer.
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
building and the interiors do not disappoint. russia might be the largest country in the world but has just handful of cultural emblems the bolshoi is indeed one of russia's greatest brands and being amongst the oldest most famous ballet and opera companies in the world is something people of any nationality should cherish. absolutely spectacular well fortunately that's that's how we have left on this week's program on the recently renovated theater i'll see you again at the same time next week and sell them for me and the rest of the crew by now.

you can have your base in kiev. and still be delighted with him and we explain and explain to him that i think it is better for us to to stay in poland because if we play three games there. and play a game there. the war of words between two of world football's greatest ever players continues to rage diego maradona at this time stating pele forgot to take his medication after suggesting neymar is better than lee and all messi sometimes striker neymar may not compute in terms of honors against messi but that didn't stop brazilian legend pele from labeling his teenage cum prostrate as quote a more complete clear a wason coach maradona having none of the other wherever taking the time to defend his fellow origin time favorite to secure a third straight fifth player of the year award this season the bad blood seemingly stemming from when pele criticized more adonis coaching of argentina during the
