Autumn and eternal spring art


Ten invited wonderful capital artists will add the current “Boldino autumn” of bright colors. With so much anticipation we await the start of November 15, all-Russian Pushkin festival of Opera and ballet art. It will be held in the twenty-sixth time in their already established canons. And yet from year to year happen welcome surprises.

The debut of the Maestro…

The biggest current news is that we have to evaluate the debut Vladislav Piavko. What a debut it is possible to talk, if it is known in the world of the Maestro, once a leading tenor of the Bolshoi theatre, people’s artist of the USSR? All true, however, for the first time Vladislav Ivanovich carried out the mission of the artistic leadership of the Nizhny Novgorod festival.

He chairs the Foundation for the legendary singer and his wife Irina Arkhipova. As such a year ago participated with a team of associates in our “Boldino autumn”. Then was born the idea of closer cooperation with the Nizhny Novgorod academic Opera and ballet theatre. A. S. Pushkin. Authoritative master, has contributed to the decoration of his current festival program are several, as they say, a star in the Opera world figures.

On the eve of the opening of the Pushkin music festival V. Piavko at the meeting with journalists admitted that he is not just happy to lend a shoulder, but even partly with awe and excitement took over the duties of artistic Director. And so explained that he is a famous figure in music, inspired to become an assistant is not the capital of the company:

— It is necessary to resist mass culture, which flowed into Russia. And the Nizhny Novgorod Opera and ballet theatre is successfully doing. We saw, learned how a long time here and purposefully engaged in the raising and fans, and creative personnel. As I try to draw the audience into the hall, raising the connoisseurs among students and other young audiences. With a wonderful Director of your theatre Anna Dmitrievna Ermakova we are like-minded because the Irina Arkhipova Foundation does the same thing in Moscow. Especially valuable is still preserved in the ocean music paper islets service to art, work properly on its future. Nizhny Novgorod Opera in that respect is one of the best and maybe the best. Therefore, we tried to help him in the formation of vivid cast of festival performances.

And ear, and eye’s delight

So, on the first night “Boldino autumn” in folk music drama “Boris Godunov” on our stage will be released two interesting soloist. In the title role — the winner of the prestigious titles and awards Askar Abdrazakov. The bass notes V. Piavko, now works mainly in the West and with great difficulty was able to allocate time to participate in the Nizhny Novgorod festival. But he responded willingly.

Playing abroad domestic Opera stars miss Russian repertoire they rarely ever sing. Here and Larisa Andreeva from the Moscow musical theatre. K. Stanislavsky and V. Nemirovich-Danchenko. already gained recognition from different countries, was delighted with the offer to perform in Nizhny Novgorod “Godunov” the role of Marina Mnishek. We can not only enjoy the voice of the young singer, but also to assess her fine stage appearance.

As a harmonious blend of youthful charm and craftsmanship promise festival meetings with other capital providers. So, Alexey Tatarintsev from Moscow theatre “New Opera”, which will appear before the people in the image of Lena. and Maria Gorelova the Large role of Lisa in “the Queen of spades”, earned in professional competitions prizes of spectator sympathies. Outstanding troupe of Moscow and St. Petersburg will be represented by their artists on “Boldino autumn”.

Vladislav Piavko will take the stage of our Opera house in the final festival concert on November 25. And the day before and already not for the public will hold a master class. The invaluable gift of Nizhny Novgorod vocalists! The same professional lesson and get our accompanists from wonderful colleagues from the Bolshoi theatre Valery Gerasimov.

In a word, powerful and, hopefully, invigorating the creative flow from both capitals flows now in the sights of Nizhny Novgorod “Boldino autumn”, promising her a new flowering.
