What’s on in Perm’ 8-23 September

We present some information below that may be of interest to those undertaking small group travel to Perm, and possibly to other people as well.


There are a couple of portals (that I have found so far) giving information on what’s on in Perm’:   properm and kulturaperm.  Neither of them is precisely abounding in events at present, but that may change…


The ‘Theatre’ Theatre have Alye parusa  from 16 to 21 September.  They also have a festival called Tekstura of theatre and film about the present day, to be held 22-29 September.  Now that they’ve put the programme up, it looks rather interesting.  Pity it starts just as we leave…

The Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre opens its new season on 3 September.  In the relevant period, there is a Balanchine mixed programme on 8 September and the Marriage of Figaro (in Italian, as I am surprised to note) 18-23 September.

The Theatre of the Young Spectator has The Notebook (Agota Kristof) on 18/19 September, The Myths of Ancient Greece on 20 September, The Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupery) on 21 September, and Dancing at Lughnasa  (Brian Friel) on 22 September.

The Bridge Theatre has The Cripple of Inishmaan on 8/9 September, Sansara (after Oleg Bodaev) on 11/12 September, Termen (‘Premiere!–An improbable story’) on 13-15 September, The Wedding 16/17 September, Juno and Perhaps  (a cult rock opera…perhaps) 18/19 September and The Hen 20/21 September.

The Red Flower Theatre has A Castle in Sweden on 12 and 19 September.

The New Drama Theatre has nothing listed after May 2012.

It looks as if the Hammer Stage are doing Tekstura as well.  They also have The Murderer (Aleksandr Molchanov; ‘Premiere!  Andrei has lost too much money at cards; they will forgive his debt, if he kills another debtor’) on 18-20 September.

The Evgeniy Panfilov Ballet are doing A Beach ‘Comme il faut’/The Winds Change (‘a show programme in two sections’) on 19 and 20 September.


The Perm Philharmonia starts its season on 19 September with a performance by what seems to be Yuri Beshmet’s Orchestra from Moscow.  As far as I can tell from their site, the programme will include some (but surely not all) of: Khrennikov’s First Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances, Harold in Italy (Berlioz) and the Romeo and Juliet Overture (Tchaikovsky again).
