Festival Description

The Festival was initiated in 1993 by Valery Gergiev, Artistic Director of the Mariinsky Theatre and has since become one of the most popular and important events in terms of contemporary music and theatre. The first Festival was considered as a “musical gift” to the city of St. Petersburg from the Mariinsky Theatre and the soloists who performed. From the very beginnings Stars of the White Nights’ program gathered the best world music, that included works that are rarely performed or have been forgotten. The ten-day Festival has expanded to cover two or three months during the summer. Renowned conductors and soloists consider it a special honor to perform at the Stars of the White Nights.
