Over the recent years, we make sure to present opera in concert version (this season – two!). First of all, it increases the number of opera premieres. Secondly, the unbreakable rule is: music director of the Bolshoi maestro Tugan Sokhiev always chooses wonderful piece, which is rarely performed. This refers to opera Mazeppa by P. Tchaikovsky. Concert version will premiere on Historic Stage on 7 March.
Tuuli Takala will appear on our stage for the first time as La Contessa di Folleville. Pietro Adaíni as Il Conte di Libenskof and Carlo Lepore as Don Profondo will perform at our theatre for the first time as well. Their performances will take place on 4th and 6th March.
