The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera at Kostomuksha festival


At the height of the summer season The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera traditionally goes on tour. This year the theatre starts its tour with participating in the International Music Festival in Kostomuksha, Republic of Karelia, the event which has featured outstanding performers and well-known musical theatres for more than twenty years. The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera has been a regular guest of the Karelian music forum ever since its first appearance at the festival in the early 1990s. 

This year the theatre presents its latest sensational premiere, "Il barbiere di Siviglia", a comic opera by Gioacchino Rossini which will be introduced to the festival audience on July 16th. 
On July 17th the actors will take the audience to a walk along the musical Broadway. The soloists of the theatre will perform excerpts from popular Broadway musicals by George Gershwin, Frederick Loewe and Leonard Bernstein. 
The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera will then continue its tour to Jekabpils, Latvia.
