The Hermitage Theatre
The Hermitage Theatre is a part of the Hermitage Complex. The noble former tsars’ court theatre was founded by Catherine the Great in 1785. The entire European repertoire was performed here. After the death of Catherine II in 1796, the theatre was closed. All the attempts to revive the theatre were unsuccessful. Only in 1989, after repair and restoration, the theatre was opened again. The theatre has its own orchestra. The orchestra tours abroad for the most part of the year. That is why concerts of classical music are quite rare here. On the stage of the theatre classical ballet and operas are performed.
