Classics at the Palace Square
Locations: Palace Square, St-Petersburg
For over five years the birthday of our city has been celebrated by a grandiose open-air
concert — the Classics at the Palace Square. An outstanding feast of the classical art starring such brilliant opera stars as Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eyvazov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Massimo Giordano, Hibla Gerzmava and Maria Guleghina, would honour any world capital. The highest level of the show is attributed not only to the star cast of the artists: everything starting from the scenography and the up-to-date technology, light design and 3D sound, luxurious costumes and stylish decorations to the live music performed by the top symphony orchestra goes in line with the expectations of the most
demanding audience. The Classics at the Palace Square is the only Russian open-air that is broadcasted by the MEZZO Channel. In 2016 the feast of the classical art from St. Petersburg was also shown by the Russian channel Kultura. The audience of the project is constantly growing: in May 2016 more than two hundred thousand locals and
the guests of the city watched the concert starring Anna Netrebko. According to the travel companies, many of them plan their visit of the Northern Capital taking into account the date of the concert.
