"The Stars of the White Nights 2007" International festival

18 May - 15 July 2007

The Mariinsky Theatre hosted the XV International Stars of the White Nights Festival.

Artistic Director: Valery Gergiev

"Jewels" Ballet by Balanchine

Artistic Director – Valery Gergiev
This festival of performing arts is the essence of the Mariinsky theatre’s artistic achievements, home of the celebrated Kirov Opera and Ballet, and is a must for ballet, opera and classical music lovers. The annual White Nights Festival derives its name from the short summer season when the sun never sets, and the beauty of these white nights contributes to the festival’s special atmosphere and its world-class programme of concerts, as audiences exit the historic theatre at midnight into daylight to stroll home through the theatrical setting of St Petersburg. The festival presents the company’s most exceptional productions with performances by leading Russian and international artists, and combines famous historical productions along with new premieres and contemporary pieces.
