Postcards from Russia – History of Russian Opera in Costumes [GALLERY]

Boris Godunov from the
Opera by Modest Mussorgsky

Boris Godunov from the Opera by Modest Mussorgsky

One of the most memorable exhibits we saw on our trip was inside the Mariinsky II.

Throughout the new theater, original and revival costumes from famous opera and ballet performances were displayed from the Mariinsky Theatre Archives.  It was a beautiful way to celebrate their colorful and dramatic history.

Coming out of the theater after The Rite of Spring, the sun had not yet gone down and two of my travel companions, Northwestern University students, Bridget and Keryn were inspired to dance along the canal.

The more we walked the streets of St. Petersburg, the more we understood the colors and artistic choices of the new Mariinsky II.
