The opening ceremony of the World Championship match between Viswanathan Anand and Boris Gelfand will be held in the Mikhail Vrubel Hall of the Tretyakov Gallery, on 10 May. At the same time, the Chief Arbiter Ashot Vardapetyan will do the draw to determine who will play with what colour in each of the twelve games. The ceremony will end with the concert by the pianist Denis Matsuev and young Russian musicians.

The President of the Russian Chess Federation Ilya Levitov noted that the opening ceremony and the draw will fully reflect the concept of the match, which is designed to emphasise a connection between chess and culture. "The match will be held in the Tretyakov Gallery, one of the best Russian pianists will perform at the opening ceremony, and the people who agreed to be the guests of honour of the match will be not just the great chess players and ex-champions, but also famous people from the arts and culture", the Russian Chess Federation's press release quotes Levitov.
