The new 'Mariinsky-2' theatre will open with a gala on Thursday night conducted by director Valery Gergiev with great performers from across the world and expected to be attended by President Vladimir Putin. The new theatre lies just behind the historic Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, which was founded in the 18th century and was the birthplace of the great ballets of Tchaikovsky like 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Swan Lake'.
