Dmitri Medvedev, the Russian president, has promised that other leaders will sit beside him at the Bolshoi’s gala reopening on October 28.

It should have been ready in 2008, but what with thing and another…. you know how it is. Anyway, Placido Domingo, who dropped by in July, said it sounds great. Which is one of several English words for ‘bolshoi’.

You can watch it live on Russian telly. No performance details yet.

    Dear Norman, the link about the acoustics is wrong. It’s about the Great hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory not the Bolshoi Theatre.

    The link leads to an acoustic description of the Great hall of the Moscow P. I.
    Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
