Implementing the project

Each year, we support the International Festival  Arts Square along with a number of other sponsors and donors.  Devised and headed by Yuri Temirkanov, the winter festival is a significant event in St. Petersburg’s cultural calendar, thrilling the city with top-class performances.

The XII Arts Square Festival will take place in St. Petersburg from 14 to 25 December 2011. This time it will reflect the Year of Italy in Russia, presenting the orchestra and choir of Parma’s Teatro Regio to the Russian public for the first time.  The foundation sponsors the participation of the Teatro Regio, whose performances will include a concert version of Verdi’s Rigoletto and Requiem.
