June 17 will mark the 142nd anniversary of the birth of Igor Fedorovich Stravinsky. To commemorate the holiday, Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theater will hold a special program at the Peterhof Museum-Reserve, in the composer’s small homeland in Oranienbaum, as well as on all stages of the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, as part of the grand “Genio del Locus” musical festival.

“Genius Loci” will premiere on June 15 at 16:00 on Mariinsky-2. The Mariinsky Theater Symphony Orchestra will perform Capriccio for piano and orchestra, music from the ballet “The Rite of Spring” and music from the ballet “Petrushka.” Denis Matsuev will perform as soloist.

That same day in the evening, the “Symphony of Psalms” and “A Soldier’s Story” will be performed in the concert hall of the Mariinsky Theater, performed by the Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jamie Jan Deliorman. The central event of the celebration will be the performance of the artists of the Mariinsky Theater and Valery Gergiev in the composer’s homeland, Oranienbaum. The event is supported by the Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives, the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the Federal State Budgetary Institution Rosconcert.

On June 16 at 3:00 p.m. a special program in honor of the composer’s birthday will be presented in the southern courtyard of the Great Menshikov Palace in the Oranienbaum park of the Peterhof Museum-Reserve, where a public gala concert by soloists from ballet and Mariinsky. The Theater Symphony Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev will take place. Before the performance there will be an interactive theatrical performance, where the actors will engage in a dialogue with the audience about art and its place in our lives. The Russian Musical Society (RMS) and the “Lost” project prepared a special project as part of the festival program.

We remember that on June 21, the French Institute in Russia and Fabrika CCI will inaugurate the Night of Ideas festival, which is celebrated annually on the five continents and in different cities, from Dakar to Los Angeles.
