The State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Russia—the country’s premier venue—is one of the most recognizable symbols of Russia. It’s known worldwide for being a major music and culture centre, true to the nation’s rich opera and dance traditions. The newly restored historical stage was re-opened in October of 2011. The update went far beyond the walls, bringing a need for the logo being remodeled as well, while keeping its core elements: the general shape and the image of the theater’s facade. The job called for extra care with the original materials as the Bolshoi logo is among Russia’s four most recognized logos. The modernization was an absolute success even with all the restrictions.
