Mikhailovsky Theatre at the Hermitage

The Mikhailovsky Theatres Hermitage Evenings is a major new project that will give audiences the chance to enjoy works by modern choreographers and gain a new appreciation of opera classics on the stage of the Hermitage Theatre. The programme will also include a music festival that will take place in the rooms of the museum, and numerous other events showcasing the combined potential of our theatre and one of the worlds biggest and most important museums.


This theatre has no preferred seating: it has been purged of etiquette, and audience members can sit wherever they see fit, said architect Giacomo Quarenghi of the unique Hermitage Theatre he designed for Empress Elizabeth and her family. The theatre has retained its original design to this day.


The Hermitage Theatre was built in the late 18th century on the spot previously occupied by Peter the Greats Winter Palace. The auditorium, in the style of an amphitheatre, has six rows of benches. The walls are panelled in faux marble and lined with pillars, the capitals of which are decorated with theatrical masks. Sculptures of Apollo and the muses are located inside the recesses in the walls, beneath relief medallions featuring portraits of famous playwrights in profile. A balustrade separates the main audience chamber from several additional rows of benches and two side boxes located right by the stage. The lucky few invited to attend royal performances spoke of a relaxed and convivial atmosphere, with audience members able to chat amongst themselves. The Empress and her high-ranking guests sat in armchairs put out for them in the stalls, whilst the rest of the audience could choose whichever of the benches in the amphitheatre was to their liking.


Every seat in the Hermitage Theatre has a clear view of the stage, and thanks to the auditorium’s unique acoustics, the sound reaches into every corner without distortion.
