What is “Helikon”?

There were a lot of opinions upon this question. Some people considered it was the mountain in Ancient Greece where singers and musicians sacrificed themselves to Apollo and muses. Others were firmly convinced that “Helikon” is not something else, but a wind instrument of the immense size. The end to disputes and doubts had been finally put on April, 10, 1990 when the musical theatre “HELIKON” was born in Moscow to unite young and talented actors and musicians in Russia.

The artistic director and the founder of the Theater, the Artist Dmitry Bertman in his 39 year has already staged more then 60 performances in Russia and abroad, including Spain, France, Germany, Ireland, Canada, Austria, Estonia, Sweden, New Zealand, Denmark. His productions are always exiting shows, which give spectators a charge of special energy.

The repertoire of Helikon-Opera (this is how the theatre is called today) consists of more than 50 performances, each of which is unique. The theatre has always been trying to depart the “convenient”, outworn scenic embodiments, to surprise the audience not only with novelty and impudence, but with bright vocal and drama performance, at the same time carefully treating a composer’s idea. The hall which has 250 seats is always full of spectators, despite quite expensive tickets. Helikon-Opera is one of the most interesting and attended theatres in Moscow.

Tsvetnoy Bulevar 13. Metro station Tsvetnoy Boulevard

The Old Moscow Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard is one of the oldest circuses in Russia. The former rider and gymnast Albert Salamonski established the permanent brick building for the circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard in Moscow in 1880. On the 20th of October 1880 the circus was opened with five rows of seats, box seats, a dress circle, wooden unnumbered benches and a standing gallery . In 1884, brick stalls were built and, in 1889 a swimming pool was added. Albert Salamonski, himself a remarkable rider, found and attracted to the circus the best horse acts as well as other phenomenal acts from all over the world. At that time the circus began to expand its repertoire with elaborate pantomimes and special performances for children.

The best clowns of the russian circus, including Yury Nikulin, graduated from there. Starting in 1960 Yury Nikulin performed for many years as a clown. In 1983, Yury Nikulin was named the Chief Producer of the Old Moscow Circus. The last performance in the old building of the Circus took place on the 13th of September, 1985. It was a very emotional event for everyone.

A new building was built on the old site. The interior of the new building included modern technical equipment, new offices, dressing rooms and stalls for the animals. The foyer was remodeled into the elegant and beautiful structure we see today. The hall, with minor changes, was restored to its original pre-reconstruction state. Several years later, on the 29th of September, 1989 the program "Hello, Old Circus!" produced by V. Krymko and N. Makovskaya was the first performance in the new building. Today, the Old Moscow Circus can accommodate more than 2 000 spectators.
