Glimpse behind the scenes and look at how the dancers practice in one of the rooms with tilted flooring to replicate the famous slope of the Bolshoi stage.

A new video captures what the stage settings look like and the fascinating technical wizardry on the ceiling of the stage.

The Bolshoi Theatre was originally built like an enormous musical instrument, using wood and papier-mâché to allow for better resonance.

“Today modern technology like VR for instance is storming our lives. This first panoramic video of the Bolshoi Theatre shot by RT only proves it. Thanks to this project, anyone can visit the unique historical building without leaving home,”  said the theatre’s general director, Vladimir Urin.
