Opera in Russia

Apr 22 - May 01, 2021

10 days | Russia | alumni UBC Travel Club

Moscow’s Bolshoi, St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky, and more!

Treat yourself to the unforgettable musical experience of attending masterpieces of Russian and classical opera on some of the world’s top stages. Visit the grand Russian cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg on a relaxed trip that includes six outstanding performances.

Our days begin with Nancy Hermiston’s presentations with insights on singers, directors, and staging followed by a visit to a magnificent cultural or historic site. Afternoons are at leisure before the evening’s performance.

From our initial base in Moscow, we’ll visit the iconic Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral, see the jewels of the Kremlin, and the Tretyakov Gallery, the premier repository of Russian art. The cultural capital of St. Petersburg offers the rococo Catherine Palace and the unparalleled collections of the Hermitage and the Faberge Museum. Come evening we plan to attend world-class performances at the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, the Bolshoi in Moscow, and other selected venues. Once schedules are available, Nancy will select six performances for you.

In both cities we’ll savour the lively food scene, sampling traditional dishes and perhaps a few surprises. Don’t miss this unique celebration of the intensity and splendour of Russian art and music!
