MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) —— First Deputy Mayor of Moscow Vladimir Resin confirmed to a news conference at Itar-Tass on Wednesday the time of opening the Bolshoi Theatre after the reconstruction.
“The restoration of the Bolshoi Theatre is finishing, and I believe on October 28 it will be opened,” Resin said. He called the end of the theatre’s reconstruction “an event, which is of importance not only for Moscow, but for the entire country, for the entire world.”
“No doubt, it is an attraction centre in the city, and after the reconstruction it returns to Muscovites and to many tourists, who visit our city,” he continued.
Commenting on reconstruction of culture objects, Resin spoke about the opening of the Moscow Conservatoire’s Grand Hall, “where the unique acoustics has been kept.” The hall has already hosted the traditional Tchaikovsky musical contest. Moscow authorities plan to allocate about seven billion roubles for repairing of the city’s theatres.
