More2Screen has been appointed by the Mariinsky Theatre to bring Mariinsky on Screen LIVE to cinemas worldwide this summer in partnership with production company Telmondis. On Monday 14 July one of the all-time favourites from the ballet repertoire, La Bayadère, will be broadcast live from the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. This will be followed by a live broadcast of a brand-new production of War and Peace from the stunning Mariinsky II stage on Wednesday 16 July. Both productions will be conducted by the Artistic and General Director of the Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev.
Christine Costello, Managing Director, More2Screen comments: "We are delighted to be working with the Mariinsky Theatre once again to bring these two outstanding productions live from St. Petersburg to cinema audiences. This is a fantastic summer live programming opportunity for our cinema partners and gives both ballet and opera fans local access to the very best of the Russian performing arts."
Valery Gergiev, Artistic and General Director of the Mariinsky Theatre says: "With their extensive experience in Event Cinema distribution, we're looking forward to working with More2Screen to take this exciting new venture, the Mariinsky on Screen, out to cinemas internationally."
