Alexandrinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg
The Alexandrinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, radiates with a rare light. The sumptuous auditorium, which was extensively renovated according to the original design from the year 1832, is luxuriously appointed with red velvet and gold leaf.
Construction work and technical changes were so extensive that the Alexandrinsky, the oldest theatre in Russia, was closed for two years. However, thanks to this, the building could reopen early in 2007 in its full glory with pristine sound. In the main auditorium a very unusual location was chosen for the new AURUS. It is sited directly above the Tsar’s box with a marvellous view over the meticulously refurbished stage. Without doubt, this is the most beautifully situated AURUS in the world.
