Bolshoi Closes

As reported previously in Russian Life (Nov/Dec 2004), the main (historical) building of the Bolshoi Theatre will be closed for reconstruction on July 1, 2005, with work to be completed in 2008. Interfax reported that the overall cost of the reconstruction project is estimated at $1 billion. While the historical building is overhauled, Bolshoi performances will be shown on the New Stage, which opened in November 2002, and at other Moscow theatres.
