Gergiev Festival 2021
Valery Gergiev still calls the city of Rotterdam ‘my second home’, his first home is of course the city of the tsars, of Peter the Great and of the Mariinsky Theatre. For many centuries St Petersburg has been the cultural capital of Russia and has a very eventful history. This is expressed in the spectacular programmes featured in this festival: from the monumental Leningrad symphony of Shostakovichto the sensational Dutch premiere of a work by Raskatov about revolutionary Russia.
Due to the covid-19 virus the Gergiev Festival had to be postponed for a year in 2020. The program of 2020 will be remained unchanged as much as possible for the edition in September 2021. Tickets already purchased for the 2020 edition will remain valid for the 2021 edition.
