One of the world?s most acclaimed opera houses, the State Academic Mariinsky Theatre, comes to Cyprus for only three performances that promise to offer a spectacle rarely enjoyed by opera lovers on the island, locals and visitors alike.

The theatre of Saint Petersburg will present Giuseppe Verdi?s ?Un Ballo in Maschera?, described by opera circles as ?the most operatic of operas?, at the medieval Pafos castle on 1, 2 and 3 of September in the 8th annual Pafos Aphrodite Festival.

The final preparations are well underway and will be completed next week with experts putting the final touches to the stage that will host the action and the setting, all of which will be embellished by the professional hand of Russian stage managers and crew, due here in the coming days.
