    Following many months of renovation work, Moscow’s famous Gogol Theatre has been reborn as a modern, multipurpose cultural complex called the Gogol Center. Housed in an old railway station in the centre of Moscow that has been completely stripped back and redesigned, the theatre plays on its original architecture to create configurations and set designs as original as the shows it hosts. The new Gogol Center is now a breathtakingly modern and modular space that is able to accommodate all… View this story

    Completed in 1886, the Slovak National Theatre was designed by Viennese architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. Since 1920, the ornate, 1,000-seat building has been the seat of the Slovak National Theatre opera and ballet ensembles. The hall has also hosted performances by some of the world’s top opera and ballet talents. Its acoustics, however, have come under more scrutiny. The room’s very short reverberation time, while acceptable for opera, doesn’t suit orchestral performances. Its narrow stage faces a long… View this story
