Moscow has always been an organic environment for the life and creativity of musical talents and is rightly considered to be the centre of Russian theatre and music art. Today, Moscow has more than 200 theatres and concert halls representing various genres and trends. Among the most popular creative associations are the Bolshoi Theatre, the Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre, the Theatre of Nations, the Zaryadye Concert Hall, the Moscow Conservatory, the Moscow Philharmonic Society and others. Public centres, museums, parks and cathedrals often become venues for artists and musicians to perform.
The Bolshoi Theatre is located in the centre of the capital, in Theatre Square. The Bolshoi Theatre is one of Russia's symbols.
Its talented performers – vocalists and ballet dancers, conductors and choreographers – are known the world over. The theatre's portico is topped by Apollo, the patron of the arts, in a quadriga, a chariot pulled by four galloping horses. This composition is familiar to all lovers of classical music in our country. The theatre's building itself is of great aesthetic, historical and cultural value. In the evenings, the Bolshoi Theatre is filled with elegant spectators, who sink into the charming and beautiful world of music and dance at the first clear sound of a live orchestra.

Moscow concert hall Zaryadye is the unique multi-functional concert complex right at the walls of Kremlin. The Moscow concert hall Zaryadye threw open its doors during the City Day, the 8th of September 2018.
Several prestigious prizes were won by the Zaryadye Hall during two first concert seasons. The Hall was acknowledged as the best concert venue of the year (2019), “The Event of The Year”, while some of the world’s best artists, musicians, and conductors performed at the stages of Grand and Small Hall. Many of the artists visited Russia for the first time.
On February 29, 2020, the main music instrument of the Zaryadye Hall, the Large Concert Organ, played for public for the first time. The assembling and voicing of the organ took more than two years. The inauguration of the Organ became an iconic event for the music world, for it lasted 24 hours.
Not only great masters are on the Zaryadye billboards, though. Young talented artists and series of cool contemporary music projects are welcome to the Hall.
Educational programmes for both children and adults are regarded as a priority for Zaryadye development. Lectures, tours, clinics, interactive concert programmes are for any age!
