It was all go at the opening of the Bolshoi’s 234th season: never before had the press conference on the Theatre’s future plans (traditionally attracting a maximum number of journalists), the Company Assembly and the first performance of the new season, all taken place on the same day. And if one bears in mind that at the press conference the Theatre’s new music director was presented and plans were revealed not just for the forthcoming season, but also for the two following seasons there can be no doubt that in the field of ballet, opera and music the Bolshoi today has become a major newsmaker.
