The musicians of the Belarusian Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra are musical all-rounders – one of the premier opera orchestras in the world, and the partners of artists such as Die Fantastischen Vier, Helene Fischer and Hans Zimmer. Founded in 1933 in Minsk, the orchestra has toured around the world, enchanting audiences with their technical ability. One of the highlights of their international schedule came in 1997 when they played at the first International Opera Festival in Manaus, Brazil, which included performing on the banks of the Rio Negro in front of more than 40,000 avid spectators.
