The museum of the Bolshoi Theater contains more than three thousand costumes, about half of which were used in productions based on Russian folklore. Because of the notorious fires, which damaged the Bolshoi Theater, and the troubles of revolution, most of the costumes are from performances of the second half of the twentieth century, and only a few examples date back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This digital exhibition, curated by The Bolshoi Theater, explores what remains of this rich history.
