St. PETERSBURG CHAMBER OPERA

The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera was founded by its artistic director Yuri Alexandrov in 1987, when the audience needed new creative ideas. The theatre was intended to be an art laboratory and immediately won the reputation as “the living opera” and “a creative theatre.”  The theatre was formed with a unique repertoire. It covers a wide range of different music genres created in different countries over the centuries.

Over the  time, the Chamber Theatre grew into The Petersburg Chamber Opera, a professional state theatre well-known both in Russia and abroad.
