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. Glinka was presented as part of a project “Russian Operas in the Astrakhan Kremlin”. The premiere of the play is scheduled on late August - early September. 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. Today, dreams, desires and plans were reunited and the future performance appeared in mock-ups, sketches of scenery and costumes. The well-known creative team, art directors Valentina Ostankovich and Philip Vinogradov will help to embody the director’s intention.

The opera “Ruslan and Lyudmila” is rarely staged in Russia and abroad because of its scale, extreme diversity and richness of images. It is filled with wonderful, lyrical and such “Russian” music, fabulous, fantastic images and a fascinating plot, based on the work of another great Russian creator - A. S. Pushkin.

Georgy Isaakyan, one of the leading opera directors, decided to embody such a complex work by combining mischief and undeniable beauty of complex music. Presenting the layout of the future performance, the director noted that by creating a bright form he is giving give a drive to the performance and thereby will help the viewer to keep his attention to the opera.

The artistic director and chief conductor Valery Voronin noted that the opera does not stand still, it is necessary to invent new moves and surprise the audience, and work with a new director helps the theater team to develop: “It will be a difficult, but interesting work and I am sure that the audience will like it”.

The members of the Art Council of the Theater expressed their opinion about what they saw as a qualitatively and finely created image of the play and expressed their desire to get down to work as soon as possible .
