On the 2nd of November 2015 Moscow music theater "Helikon-Opera" will open its 26th season in the historical building in Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street. Reconstruction of the theater lasted for almost 8 years. Thanks to the help of the Government of Moscow, and personally, The Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobianin and the Head of the Urban Complex Marat Khusnullin, the tumbledown manor of Shakhovskaja-Glebova-Streshneva turned into a modern theater complex.
On the 21st of October a theatrical and musical project "The Queen of Spades" was performed at the State Memorial Museum of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaykovskiy in Klin. The show took place in the framework of the concert and the exhibition project "Tchaikovsky’s Theatre", organized by the Museum and the Ministry of Culture of the Moscow region. The opera "The Queen of Spades" by Tchaikovsky is based on the novel by Alexander Pushkin.

"Helikon-Opera" meets it 26th season in the house on Nikitskaya, where the theatre was born in the 90ies. Initially there was only five persons: four soloists and a director. And we have a dream that one day our small theater will be transformed into a magnificent palace like in a fairy tale. And finally our dream come true!
