On August 30 and 31, the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater, within the framework of the project “Russian Operas in the Astrakhan Kremlin” will present the fifth Russian open-air opera in the Astrakhan Kremlin. The first production in the Kremlin took place in 2012 by the initiative of the artistic director and principal conductor of the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater Valery Voronin.
This time, one of the most important works of Russian culture, M. Glinka’s epic opera, based on the poem “Ruslan and Lyudmila” of the same name by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin will revive near the walls of the Assumption Cathedral.
The opera is filled with fabulous, fantastic images, a fascinating plot, and of course, wonderful, lyrical and such a “Russian” music. Artistic director and principal conductor Valery Voronin and opera director Georgy Isaakyan, well known in Russian culture, artistic director of the Moscow State Academic Children's Musical Theater named after N.I. Sats will work on the performance.
The whole creative team of the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater is involved in this production: opera and ballet soloists, choir and orchestra.
