Berlioz makes his Bolshoi debut tonight

Amazingly, tonight’s opening of Peter Stein’s production of La Damnation de Faust is the first time any work of Hector Berlioz has been staged at the Bolshoi.

Tugan Sokhiev conducts.

  • And they go and choose an oratorio. Will Faust look like Valery Gergiev, I wonder, and Mephistopheles as Putin, I wonder?

    Interesting indeed, though Gergiev has done a lot of Berlioz at the Mariinsky, hasn’t he?
