On February 21, the Art Council Meeting was held in the hall of the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater where the stage solution of the new production of Ruslan and Lyudmila's opera by M. I.

This performance will open the beginning of the 24th theatrical season and will be timed to the celebration of the year of the Theater of Russia.

The fact that George Isaakyan, a recognized figure in Russian culture will stage this performance became a great joy for the team. The renowned director himself admitted that he was dreaming of performing the opera “Ruslan and Lyudmila” for 25 years, however, this performance is a real toughie.

The well-known creative team, art directors Valentina Ostankovich and Philip Vinogradov will help to embody the director’s intention.
