The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera at the All-Russian festival “See the Music”
The second festival of Russian music theatres “See the Music” will take place in Moscow from September 27th to November 3rd 2017.
Eleven local theatres, among them are companies from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Irkutsk, Krasnodar, Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg, will take place at the festival. Opera, ballet, musicals and operetta, the best music performances from all over Russia, will be presented on main music stages in Moscow. The festival is held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera theatre will perform in Moscow within the All-Russian festival “See the Music” presenting three productions:
October 16th Johann Strauss’s “Die Fledermaus” (on the stage of the Russian Academic Youth Theatre)
October 17th Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” (on the stage of the Moscow City Musical Theater “Helikon-Opera”)
October 18th Benjamin Britten’s “The Rape of Lucretia” (on the stage of the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre)
The staging of all productions is done by artistic director of the St. Petersburg Chamber Opera, People’s Artist of Russia, Yuri Alexandrov.
Brilliant staging of Johann Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus” has won many spectators’ hearts and become one of the best productions of the theatre. The production is a laureate of the St. Petersburg Highest Theatre Award “Golden Sofit” in nomination “The Best Performance in Operetta Genre”.
“Don Giovanni” at the St. Petersburg Chamber Opera theatre is an original author’s interpretation of the genius Mozart’s piece. The scenic version of Yuri Alexandrov has a lot of unpredictable twists apart from the classical plot. Familiar situations are highlighted from unexpected point of view.
The staging of “The Rape of Lucretia” by the St. Petersburg Opera theatre has become a Russian première of the Britten’s opera. The production was awarded with the St. Petersburg Highest Theatre Award “Golden Sofit”. This exquisite and metaphoric production will be presented in Moscow for the first time.
