Russian State Ballet and Opera House have been touring in UK for six weeks. It has been a fantastic six weeks full of dancing, rehearsing, travelling and site seeing for the cast.
The Orchestra arrived a few weeks ago to join the troupe. Founded in April 1927, the Belarus State Academic Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest institutions in the former Soviet Union. The first performance given by the Symphonic Orchestra was conducted by the Great Russian composer R. Gluier, and featured the famous soloist and Austrian pianist R. Gottlieb. In 1937 the young, talented and now world famous I. Mussin took charge of the Orchestra. When you hear live music at the theatre (any theatre) it makes such a difference the way you watch ballet. I am sure a lot of people have goose pimples when they hear live music, especially if it’s written by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky.
Andrei Galanov is a prominent conductor, internationally recognised for his work with leading orchestras in his native Belarus, Russia, and around the globe.
Maestro Galanov is an active guest conductor with many acclaimed orchestras such as the Chamber Orchestra of Provence in France, Teatro Marrucino Orchestra in Italy, and New Tokyo Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra of Japan. His conducting has been well received by audiences in Belgium, England, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Norway, Switzerland and Japan. For the past ten years he has been invited to perform at numerous festivals in France and Italy.
Maestro Galanov enjoys guest conducting with the National Symphony Orchestra of Belarus. He has led orchestras in special performances of new works by contemporary composers. He conducted the world premiere of “Requiem pour Tchernobyl” by Bruno Letort.

As we have been extremely busy we haven’t posted a lot of ‘behind the scene’ posts while the tour is on. We still have a month to go so we try our best to tell you how the cast is going on. For this post, however, I’ve decided to concentrate on some lovely photos.
Sophie Teasdale came to take a few photos backstage. Here just a few of them. I think they look great.
