Hvorostovsky State Opera and Ballet Theater was on Tour Visit to Kazakhstan


The Hvorostovsky State Opera and Ballet Theater from Krasnoyarsk was on a tour visit to Kazakhstan. The troupe presented the Prince Igor opera at the Astana Opera.

The performance is the most striking and the biggest in the repertoire of the theater. The opera is known for its difficult writing process. Aleksandr Borodin wrote the opera for 18 years but he did not finish it. After his death, his student, composer Glazunov completed the work.

The Prince Igor opera continues to be popular to this day among spectators and is a unique highlight of the Siberian Theater.

“Of course, we chose one of the favorite performances, Borodin’s opera, Prince Igor, which was staged as an opening opera, which opened 30 years ago dedicated to the 350th anniversary of the Krasnoyarsk city. Now this is a new production. The new opera was staged in 2013. The opera is interesting for its ballet performances. The performances include famous Polovtsian Dances, which will not leave anyone indifferent,” said Director of Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk State Opera and Ballet Theater, Svetlana Guziy.

Another surprise from the Krasnoyarsk Theater was the Raymond ballet staged by outstanding choreographer, Grigorovich.

Residents and guests of the capital watched the complex performance with the mix of the medieval atmosphere and Spanish-Arabic and Hungarian motifs.
