The opera will also be performed on Oct. 12, Nov. 30, Dec. 27 and Jan. 6.
The musical director of the production is Pavel Klinichev of Russia's Bolshoi Theatre. Staging will be done by Mikhail Pandzhavidze, also of the Bolshoi Theatre. Sets and costumes will be designed by Fyodor Federovsky, People's Artist of the USSR and Nonna Federovskaya for the 1966 Bolshoi Theatre production.
Igor Oganov was the renewal designer, lighting design is by Sergey Shevchenko and the chorus master is Valery Kopanev.
"The Tsar's Bride" was composed in 1898, with the first performance taking place at Mamontov's Private Russian Opera in Moscow in 1899.
Rimsky-Korsakov said he intended for the opera to be a reaction against the ideas of Richard Wagner and to be in the style of "cantilena par excellence."
