Press conference on March 15, 2016, dedicated to the XV Moscow Easter Festival

The XV Moscow Easter Festival, traditionally co-sponsored by Total, has announced its program. This year, the Festival is dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the great Russian composer Sergey Prokofiev. The Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev, eminent soloists, ensembles and choruses will give performances in Moscow and many other cities across Russia.

In 2016, Total celebrates 10 years of partnership with Mariinsky Theater and its director, Maestro Valery Gergiev. This year our partnership has reached yet another milestone, with the 3-year cooperation agreement between Total and Mariinsky Theater announced by Total’s CEO Patrick Pouyanné in December 2015 at the Board of Trustees meeting in Kremlin. It is another proof of Total’s long-term commitment to Russia.

Total, the biggest French investor in the Russian Federation, considers its support to the Mariinsky Theater’s projects, including the Moscow Easter Festival, as a contribution to the strengthening of understanding and dialog between Russia and France.
