Music Hall Theatre in St. Petersburg
October 19, 2016 15:35

The Russian musical theater headed by the Italian conductor Fabio Mastrangelo will celebrate its 50th anniversary soon.
Music Hall is a unique and extremely modern theater, offering very high-quality stage productions. Performances of varied genres appear in its posters. These include both a fixed repertoire and tour plays, as well as performances of various St. Petersburg theaters and concerts. The repertoire also offers young spectators' shows based on famous fairy tales, films and animations.
The history of St. Petersburg Music Hall is older than a century. Back in 1900 the Aleksandrovsky Park became the construction site of the largest People's House, an entertaining institution for the middle class.
In 1928 the first Music Hall was opened there. The young theater gained success thanks to its art director, the famous Soviet composer Isaac Dunayevsky. Among the performers invited by him there were the Soviet star singers Claudia Shulzhenko and Leonid Utyosov.
The second Music Hall opened in 1966 was headed by Ilya Rakhlin. The theater won recognition not only in St. Petersburg, but all over the country as well. Moreover, it toured in Europe, America, Japan, and Australia. The glory of Music Hall thundered worldwide. The theatre's programs featuring the most notable Soviet actors were outstandingly successful and original. Ilya Rakhlin personally authored and staged all the performances.
In 2013 the Russian-Italian conductor Fabio Mastrangelo took the post of the theater's art director. The most famous Italian in domestic musical circles, he had collaborated with a number of Russian theaters before coming to the Music Hall. The musician turned to be a remarkable director, who made the theatre blossom again in the 2010s. Just like in the 1970s, the Music Hall  stages world-class performances nowadays, but these are 3D musicals, grand international projects, such as the musical Master and Margarita, and vivid modern shows for children.
The Music Hall Theatre is located at the address: 4, Aleksandrovsky Park, next to the Gorkovsky metro station, St.Petersburg.
