About Us

Our Mission

The Mariinsky Foundation of America was formed in 1999 to support the activities of the Mariinsky Theatre’s constituent institutions: The Mariinsky Opera, Ballet, and Orchestra and the Academy for Young Singers and the Young Musicians’ Orchestra.

The Mariinsky Foundation of America’s mission includes a commitment to strengthen and expand the cultural, educational and business relationships between Russia and the United States and to be a positive, apolitical force for peace.
