The Mariinsky Theatre Trust is grateful to BP for its four-year support of the Mariinsky UK touring programme. This partnership builds on the strong relationship already established between BP Russia and the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg and forms part of BP's cultural programme in the UK.


The Mariinsky Theatre Trust

Over 20 years of innovative support


  • The Mariinsky Theatre Trust has been ground-breaking in the world of arts support organisations.

    Created in 1993 by Valery Gergiev, the Trust combines practical assistance for the Mariinsky Theatre’s work in Russia with active promotion of its most innovative programming in the UK.



Contessa Yoko Nagae Ceschina

  • We at the Mariinsky Theatre Trust were greatly saddened to learn of the death of Contessa Yoko Nagae Ceschina.

    Yoko was a most generous friend and benefactor of the Mariinsky Theatre, and of so many musical and charitable institutions worldwide.

    She loved music, she herself was a musician and music was her life. As Valery Gergiev said, her death is a devastating loss for all of us who knew her and were her friends.
