The Mariinsky theater (also known as the Kirov) of St. Petersburg has somehow maintained its artistic excellence through war, revolution and the collapse of Communism.
Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Richard Thomas, SACRED STAGE tells the astonishing story of the Mariinsky's survival, illustrated with stunning performances from the opera and ballet, as well as candid interviews with luminaries, scholars and performers.
