The building of the Concert Hall has historic connections with the Mariinsky Theatre.

In 1900 the Set Workshops and Hall of the Board of the Imperial Theatres, which came under the authority of the Mariinsky Theatre in 1917, was built to a design by Viktor Schröter on this site. For over a century unique sets were created in the workshops for numerous productions, many of which survive in the theatre’s repertoire to this day. In September 2003 a fire broke out in the Set Workshops that destroyed almost all the costumes and sets being stored there and that damaged the building so much that it seemed it would be impossible to restore it.


The opening of the Concert Hall has proved yet another historic date in Russian theatre history.

It is the only theatre and concert venue of its kind in Russia, designed according to the very latest developments in construction and purpose-built to host concert programmes. With regard to technology and acoustics, the work of Mr Toyota, the new hall ranks alongside the world’s finest concert venues, such as the concert halls in Lucerne, Sapporo and Birmingham, Berlin’s Philharmonie, Leipzig’s Gewandhaus and the Disney Hall in Los Angeles. In the new hall, the stage can be transformed for the desired effect according to the programme for the evening. The controls for the individual blocks of the stage plane-table mean that the positions of orchestral groups can be varied, or an orchestra pit created. The hall can also be used for stage performances of operas and ballets.
