Total number of performances by country, for the 2013/14 season. In brackets, the national populations in millions.
The one big change compared with our previous years' statistics is the rise of Russia, which is due to better collection rather than an actual increase in the number of performances.

Germany easily maintains its dominant position, but Russia overtakes the USA to move into second place.
