The new season 2007/2008 will be opened by “Le Nozze di Figaro” opera by W. A. Mozart (26th, 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th September). The plans of the theatre include the joint production of “Perikola” operetta by J. Offenbach together with the Moscow Music Hall. Dmitry Bertman explained the reference to operetta genre: “…when the repertoire of Moscow theatres is excessively dramatized, we would like to appeal to easy genre and create the qualitative and successful performance and make public to enjoy it instead of trying to understand the conception”.

It is also planned to finish the Beaumarchais’ trilogy with “Cherubin” by J. Massenet.

The tour plans of “Helikon-Opera” include Cyprus, Sicily, France, Lebanon, Estonia and Hungary. The big tour will be held in Khanty-Mansiysk (Russia).
