Building A Music CityStreaming Video - 2013
This documentary follows the construction of Mariinsky II, the first new opera house built in Russia since the Soviet regime. Under the direction of Valery Gergiev, chief conductor and director of the Mariinsky, and the support of the Russian government the design process commences. Several obstacles delay progress and ultimately Canadian architect Jack Diamond adopts the project. However, huge complications lie ahead for him- the marshy lands below the construction site, the intense cold weather, communication challenges with authorities, culture clashes and of course, Russian bureaucratic red tape. With relentless determination and unfailing support from Gergiev, Jack Diamond and his team work around the clock to build a structure with revolutionary acoustics fitting for the St. Petersburg skyline.
