The repertoire of Mariinsky aims to demonstrate the supreme art of the performers in its companies and its stage, linking the history of the Theatre with contemporary audiences and with contemporary works from the diverse genres of opera, ballet and symphonic music.
A new building has been recently added to the original one, with the latest technology in its main stage and three new chamber venues. The building covers 79,114 m2, and it is one of the largest theatre and concert venues in the world. The auditorium seats up to 2,000 people at full capacity.
In 2009, Mariinsky launched its own record label.
