Bolshoi Theatre

When we traveled to Russia two months ago one of the places we visited is the historic Bol’shoy Theatre which is just in front of the Red Square.  As I am not really the one reading or preparing our itinerary I am not aware of the importance of the theatre in my eyes it is just a new building which has good columns and architectural design.  My husband informed me that it is historical and consider to be one of the oldest theatre in the world.
