The message reads, in part:
“The annals of history of one of the oldest musical theatres in Russia keep record of a brilliant palette of wonderful opera and ballet productions, as well as an entire constellation of talented singers, dancers, directors, musicians whose inspired work has made a major contribution to the development of Russian art and to the popularisation of the unique creative heritage of the great Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
It is important that today, the theatre is still a recognised cultural and educational centre, well known not only in Russia, but also far beyond its borders. With its solid creative and spiritual potential, it is appreciated by the most discerning audience. The current theatre company carries on the artistic traditions of its predecessors with honour, implementing remarkable and fascinating ideas and projects.
I am confident that you will continue to delight your loyal fans with spectacular premieres, and enhance the glory of our national opera and ballet schools.”
