Peterhof kicks off the fountain season

The Peterhof Museum-Reserve is getting ready to start the fountain season. The opening ceremony this year will be dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the water supply system

Theatrical performance at the Grand Cascade will present the history of the creation of the fountain system

The scriptwriters, senior lecturer of the department of directing theatrical performances and holidays of the St. Petersburg State Institute of Culture Dmitry Sokolov and the general director of the Peterhof State Museum of Fine Arts Elena Kalnitskaya, called this holiday "... Bring water to flow" - this is an exact quote from the Clauses that Peter I personally approved, listing in 1721 necessary work in Peterhof.

Theatrical performance at the Grand Cascade will present the history of the creation of the fountain system. Together with the creator of the water conduit, other heroes of the “fountain story” will appear in the theatrical celebration on the Grand Cascade: the French architect Leblond, the author of the very first unrealized “Water Plan” for Peterhof, and the Russian self-taught hydraulics engineer Tuvolkov, who designed the water conduit route, which is still in effect.

The chamberlain Berchholz, who was at the court of the Duke of Holstein, will share his enthusiastic memories of the opening of the Peterhof Sea Canal. The words of the French ambassador Campredon about the very first palaces of Peterhof will be heard.

Within the framework of the holiday, it is also planned to hold a conference, create a special booklet and a banner exhibition. “A person, while resting, is enlightened: he comes, takes a ticket to the park, there are banner boards, and all this can be read and looked at.

We are trying to find such places so as not to spoil the architectural panoramas, ”said Elena Kalnitskaya, Director General of the Peterhof Museum-Reserve earlier. The fountain festival will take place on May 22 at 13:00 at the Grand Cascade of the Peterhof Museum-Reserve.

Recall that due to the pandemic, the season of fountains in St. Petersburg in 2020 began two months later, and the ceremonies were canceled.

The exception was the celebration of the 315th anniversary of the founding of Peterhof - on September 12, the Museum-Reserve celebrated it with fireworks and the launch of fountains, which for the first time took place in front of spectators. Later, the fountain season was extended in the city due to warm weather.
