    LIVE NOW Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre Grand Re-opening gala broadcast

    The gala concert following a long and controversial restoration and renovation will be broadcast LIVE starting in about an hour & 15 min:

    I believe it will be a mix of opera and ballet star performances. Looking forward to it!

    ARTE is showing the gala "slightly" delayed, starting at 8.40pm CET.

    I'll wait for that to watch it in HD on my big screen.

    The Grand Re-opening of the Bolshoi Theater. Live from Russia.
    Please note the event is only available in Russia and the Americas.

    Eek, sorry, wasn't paying close attention during the broadcast and was getting conflicting reports

    Anyway, someone uploaded the whole program from the Russian TV broadcast. Enjoy!

    I think some theaters are also doing an HD showing here in the states. BAM in Brooklyn is showing it Thursday, No. 10th. I'm going to ABT at City Center that night, otherwise I would trek off to BAM.

    Not directly about the Bolshoi but I found out thanks to CBC radio about a pair of American brothers aged 10 and 12 who study full time at the Bolshoi academy. They sound like your average star struck kids and hope to be principle dancers for the Bolshoi one day. Just an adorable story.
