<p>Classical opera and ballet theatre, considered second in importance among Russia's
theatres, after the Bolshoy Theatre in Moscow. It was named after Alexander
II's wife Mary. The artistic development of the Mariinsky theatre is associated
with performances (often premieres) of operas by the great Russian composers
such as N.A. Rimsky-Korsakov, P.I. Chaikovsky, S.S. Prokofyev, D.D. Shostakovich
and others, as well as foreign classical composers. </p>
