Mikhail Tatarnikov’s position as Musical Director and Principal Conductor of Mikhailovsky Theatre extended to 2020



We are thrilled to announce that Mikhail Tatarnikov’s position as Musical Director and Principal Conductor of the Mikhailovsky Theatre has been extended to 2020. 
Mikhail Tatarnikov has been in this position since January 2012. With pride we can say that he has put this very historic venue back on the international map, inviting conductors and stage directors of international stardom and vastly raising the orchestral level in a short space of time. 
The Mikhailovsky Theatre has seen the world premieres of Dmitri Shostakovich’s masterpieces ‘The Nose’ and ‘Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk’, as well as the world premiere of Sergey Prokofiev’s epic opera ‘War and Peace’ which took place on the theatre’s stage on 12 June 1946.
Under the baton of Maestro Tatarnikov the Mikhailovsky gave Benjamin Britten’s ‘Billy Budd’ its long overdue Russian premiere in January 2013.
