The Bolshoi Theatre (Большой театр [bʌl ʲ 't ʃɔj ɪ'atr ʲ]) is both a theater as a theater, dance and opera in Moscow, Russia, and an additional unit in Joinville, Brazil. The word Bolshoi meaning "big" in Russian. The company was founded in 1776 by Prince Pyotr Urusov and English entrepreneur Michael Maddox. After three years presented in a private, Maddox in 1780 built a new theater in Petrovka Street (Petrovsky Theatre), where it remained until the fire that destroyed the building in 1805. The current building, built in 1825 on the remains of Petrovsky, and designed by the architect Osip Ivanovich Bovet is, after La Scala, the largest in Europe. At that time, all Russian theaters were imperial property. Both in Moscow and St. Petersburg had a theater dedicated to opera and ballet theater and other spoken (comedies and tragedies). The opera houses were known as "Grand Theatre" (Bolshoi in Russian), and drama were the "Little Theatre" (Maly). The Bolshoi of Moscow was originally known as Imperial Grand Theatre of Moscow, while the St. Petersburg Bolshoi Kameny Theatre was the ('Grand Theatre Stone "), and was the predecessor of today's Mariinsky Theatre.
