The project “Russian Operas in the Astrakhan Kremlin” will present Rusalka by A. Dargomyzhsky

The year 2024 can be fairly called the year of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin. To mark the 225th anniversary of the poet’s birth, the opera Rusalka by A.S. Dargomyzhsky based on the poem of the same name by A.S. Pushkin will be presented on the Cathedral Square of the Astrakhan Kremlin on August 30 and 31.

The deep psychological insight of the work, love and betrayal, hopes and separation, bitter regrets, guilt and remorse, will keep the audience interested in the fates of the characters until the last musical chord.

Vivid images and relationships of all the participants of the drama, fast-paced events, the interweaving of reality with mysticism will help to disclose the inner world of a person, the nature of his actions and the inevitable atonement for many of them.

The fresh, natural element of Russian music, truly folk, which combines dramatic and comedic, genre-household and lyrical features, will be presented by the symphonic orchestra of the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theatre under the baton of Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Valery Voronin.

The stage design, innovative technical solutions, unusual lighting effects, and the costumes of the opera characters will depict Russian nature, national life, ritualism, and the distinctive features of the national folklore. Director Sergei Novikov (Moscow) notes, “This will be a new, unusual interpretation of Rusalka, made in the way it has never been staged before. Many interesting discoveries await the audience...”

In the year of the 225th anniversary of the birth of A.S. Pushkin, his poem “Rusalka”, which, thanks to his full namesake A.S. Dargomyzhsky, became part of the great Russian opera art, will be performed on the Cathedral Square of the Astrakhan Kremlin and will continue the unique musical project, the basis of which is a tribute to Russian composers, Russian poets, Russian culture and traditions.
