Здание Екатерининского общественного собрания
Грибоедова наб.к., 88/90
On the Night of St. Petersburg museums and city guests a bright event awaits - Petersburg Concert opens a new concert venue on 88-90 Griboedov Canal Embankment. Here on May 18 at 18.00 in the building of the former Catherine’s meeting, built in 1906, an exciting dynamic spectacle will unfold, filled with music, poetry and vivid theater performance.
The house, which is an excellent example of the Art Nouveau style, at the beginning of the 20th century was one of the centers of cultural life in St. Petersburg. His fate is inextricably linked with the names of Sergei Diaghilev, Anna Pavlova, Alexander Kugel, Zinaida Kholmskaya, Nikolai Evreinov, Samuel Samosud and other famous representatives of Russian culture. However, in connection with the tragic collisions of history, the Muses left the Catherine’s Assembly for many years. After more than 100 years, the oldest concert organization in Russia presented a unique opportunity - to return art to the walls that were once created for it.
A fascinating musical and dramatic action will cover all the historic interiors of the old House. At the entrance, the audience will be greeted by the magical sounds of horn music performed by the State Horn Orchestra conducted by Sergei Polyanichko, and here guests will also be awaited by the performance of the virtuoso String Quartet named after N. A. Rimsky-Korsakov.
In the lobby, guests will have the opportunity to make a real time travel: to travel back to the Catherine’s meeting, when magnificent masquerades, musical and dramatic evenings were held, rehearsals of the first “Russian Seasons”, performances of the Crooked Mirror theater and operettas by director Nikolai Seversky were held, members sat literary circle Korney Chukovsky. About all this and much more will tell excursions-performances.
The audience will appreciate the elegant decor of the historic building and the elegant interiors of the chamber concert hall with impressive balcony windows overlooking the main staircase. Here artists of the St. Petersburg State Musical Drama Theater "ART" under the direction of s. but. Russian Alexander Isakov will demonstrate fragments from famous repertoire performances.
All this will be complemented by dance, music and poetic numbers. Throughout the journey, guests will be greeted by revived statues. A variety of lighting effects will give a special atmosphere to what is happening.
