29 October 2015, Thursday


October, 28 "Iolanta" opera by Pyotr Tchaikovsky premiered on the Historical stage. For the first time at The Bolshoi the opera will be presented together with its �lost twin' Nutcracker though, true, in the form of the Symphonic Suite rather than the two-act ballet. But, for all that, Tchaikovsky's idea of uniting the two works into a single production, rather than simply presenting them as a double bill on the same evening, will be realized. Maestro Anton Grishanin conducted the staging by Sergei Zhenovach, and Alexander Borovsky was in charge of set design.

The main parts on the premiere night have been performed by Ekaterina Morozova (Iolanta), Oleg Dolgov (Vaudemont), Vyacheslav Pochapsky (King Rene), Igor Golovatenko (Robert) and Elchin Azizov (Ibn-Hakia).

The premiere performances will take place on October, 28-31. The next time you will see "Iolanta" at The Bolshoi on January, 8-10 - tickets are already on sale!
