“Musical Lounge” Chamber Concert
On May 30, a concert from the “Musical Lounge” cycle will take place. The concert program includes music from famous operas by Gaetano Donizetti.
If there is a composer who can make anyone fall in love with opera, then it is without a doubt Donizetti. The idol of fans of the romantic style bel canto ("beautiful singing") and the owner of an inexhaustible melodic gift, deep poetic talent and a sense of theatricality. He created masterpieces that are distinguished by virtuoso melodies, the perfect balance of touching and comic, and magnificent coloratura. For over 150 years, his music has thrilled the hearts of listeners around the world.
The leading soloists of the theatre, laureates of international competitions Elizaveta Alexandrova (harp), Olga Mityokina (piano), Alexandra Lyapich (soprano), Dmitry Udi (baritone), Natalia Vorobyova (mezzo-soprano) and Yaramir Nizamutdinov (tenor) will perform with instrumental fantasies arias and duets from operas: “Lucia di Lammermoor”, “La favorite”, “L’elisir d’amore”, “Don Pasquale” and many others.
The concert will take place in the unique interior of the Music (Red) room of the von Derviz mansion. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, art evenings were held in the Red Drawing Room, attracting prominent figures of the era. This wonderful tradition has been revived by the St. Petersburg Opera Theatre. We invite viewers to admire the beautiful interior of one of the unique European mansions and enjoy the sound of the music of the virtuoso Donizetti in the unique atmosphere of the aristocratic salon.
The concert program is subject to change!
