Astana Musical Presented Shanyrak Performance

The capital hosted the premiere of the Shanyrak musical performance for the media. The unique performance was presented by the Astana Musical Theater.

Shanyrak is an experimental performance of the new area. The plot takes place in a yurt. Conveying all the glory of the cultural identity of Kazakhs, the artists depict the important stages of human life.

The event organizers said that national traditions and customs, as well as folk instruments and songs, give the performance a unique national spirit. The production also features modern choreography and new technical opportunities.

The performance will premiere on November 5th and 6th.

“I think that there hasn’t been such a performance in Kazakhstan yet. The rehearsals had lasted four months. During this time, we staged the drama from scratch. Music for the play has been composed recently. It is based on traditional folklore compositions. Various ritual and national songs are played during the show. We tried to adapt all this in a modern way,” said Stage and Art Director of Theatre, Yeslyam Nurtazin.
