The World Club of Petersburgers celebrates its 18th birthday. The Club's President and State Hermitage Director Mikhail Piotrovsky (http://www.ceo.spb.ru/eng/art/piotrovsky.m.b/index.shtml ) welcomed the guests gathered at the Hermitage Theatre: the consuls general of foreign countries, deputies of the Legislative Assembly, representatives of the St Petersburg municipal administration, noted scholars and performers, the heads of large companies, banks, publishing houses, museums and libraries.

Our seat is between Georgi Vadimovich Vilinbakhov (http://www.wwclub.spb.ru/ru/who-members-vilinbakhov.html ), State Heraldmaster of Russia, and Sheila S. Gwaltney ( http://stpetersburg.usconsulate.gov/cg.html ), Consul General of the United States of America in St. Petersburg.

The Hermitage Theatre  in Saint Petersburg, Russia is one of five Hermitage (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermitage_Museum ) buildings lining the Palace Embankment of the Neva River.

The palatial theatre was built between 1783 and 1787 at the behest of Catherine the Great (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_the_Great ) to a Palladian (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palladian_architecture ) design by Giacomo Quarenghi (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giacomo_Quarenghi ). The crumbling Third Winter Palace of Peter the Great was demolished to make room for the new structure, although its old foundations are still visible in the ground floor. Quarenghi's designs for the theatre were engraved and published in 1787, earning him a European reputation.

The semicircular auditorium is decorated with color marble and surrounded with ten niches for statues of Apollo and the muses. As the interior has never been overhauled, the original stage machinery remains in situ, but the elaborate sets, an acclaimed work of the Turinese artist Pietro Gonzaga (1751-1831), were lost during the years of Soviet neglect.
