“The Stars of the White Nights” Festival is one of the brightest and most popular events in the classic music, opera, ballet and drama theatre world. The festival consists of a series of performances conducted by Russian dancers, singers, musicians and actors, as well as famous international guest stars.
During the last years the Festival program has included the works created by the great classical composers – Beethoven symphonies, Prokofiev’s and Tchaikovsky’s operas, the production of Wagner’s “Der Ring des Nibelungen”, in addition to the Shostakovich and Mahler Symphonies series.
The beauty of St-Petersburg White Nights only contributes to the festival’s special atmosphere. It is really amazing to come out of the historic theatre at midnight into daylight to stroll along the streets of the Northern capital of Russia.
