Gergiev Festival 2020

Theme Sint-Petersburg

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 Shostakovich, via Tchaikovsky’s archetypal Russian opera Eugene Onegin to the sensational Dutch première of a work by Raskatov about revolutionary Russia.  


We made a list of classical works, programmed for festival 2020. This way you can enjoy classical music in this period without live concerts. We wish you a lot of listening pleasure.

 “"I consider St. Petersburg my first home and I'm happy to take the rich musical culture of that city with me to my second home: Rotterdam."”
