The orchestra
of the Mikhailovsky Theatre

This ensemble can take on any artistic challenge. The orchestra of the Mikhailovsky Theatre is not only one of the best in our city, it is also truly cherished by Petersburg natives and visitors. Its working schedule is packed and varied, with regular premieres in its home theatre, work on the current repertoire, and an active concert programme. Founded in 1918-1919, the orchestra has in its long life partnered with many leading Soviet and foreign conductors.

Although on the cusp of its centenary, the ensemble is young and full of creative energy, which is why, along with its heavy classical workload, it is always happy to take part in bold and innovative experiments.
