St. Petersburg is rich in beautiful theatrical buildings. Among them, in the center of the city the palace of Baron von Derviz - the building of the St. Petersburg Opera Theatre is situated. The mansion has survived several eras... From the home theatre of Sergei von Derviz to the Meyerhold theatre stage, from the Soviet House of Culture to the theatre of Yuri Alexandrov, who was able to return this pearl of European Art Nouveau to St. Petersburg in its original form.
In the 1880s, a young baron, a descendant of the old German Wiese family, actual privy councilor and chamberlain Sergei Pavlovich von Derviz decided to rebuild an ordinary apartment building, turning it into a fabulous Art Nouveau palace. The architect Peter Schreiber rebuilt the mansion, focused on the interiors in which the modern era is replaced by the Empire style, the Elizabethan baroque - classicism, unexpectedly lost in the bliss of the magnificent Moorish style.
Over the years, thanks to the efforts of the artistic director of the theatre, Yuri Alexandrov, it was possible to completely restore the historical appearance of the mansion. The last restoration work was completed in the summer of 2020 and today, for the first time to the public, the Red Room opens its doors. Under Baron von Dervies, art evenings were held in the Red Room, gathering prominent cultural figures of the late 19th - early 20th centuries. 
Today, the St. Petersburg Opera Theatre not only invites viewers to admire the beautiful interior of one of the unique European mansions, but also enjoy the sound of chamber vocal lyrics and instrumental music in the unique atmosphere of an aristocratic salon.
