Formerly known as Petrograd, St Petersburg was at the heart of Russia’s 1917 February and Bolshevik Revolutions. A period of radical change for this former Tsarist nation, the 1917 uprisings signalled the end of the monarchy and the birth of the Soviet Union. This November heralds the centenary of the end of the Russian Revolution, and fittingly, St Petersburg’s finest galleries, museums and theatres will be acknowledging this landmark occasion with some captivating exhibitions and events.

1917 – Twilight of Gods: Everyday and Revolution at Alexandrinsky Theatre

Trace the footsteps of those treading the revolutionary path at this stimulating lecture from Julia Demidenko at the Alexandrinsky Theatre. Key questions will be asked about Russian art and culture during the transitional era from the Russian Empire to the Soviet Union, such as: how were everyday lives effected? What did inhabitants of post-revolution Petrograd do for entertainment? What did they wear, eat and drink? Find out at Alexandrinsky Theatre on 11th October.
