Lonely Planet review

Named after famous Mt Helicon, home to the muses and inspiration for musicians, this early-1990s opera company is unique in Moscow for its innovative, even experimental, opera performances. Director Dmitry Bertman is known for ‘combining musical excellence with artistic risk’, according to one local dramaturge. The Gelikon’s 250-seat theatre provides an intimate setting that allows for some interaction between the performers and the audience.
