Gala Concert of World Opera Stars in Red Square for FIFA World Cup
May 31, 2018 14:39

A unique gala concert will bring together world stars of the opera in the Red Square to celebrate FIFA World Cup!
For the first time on one stage: famous classical opera singers, who have long gained worldwide recognition and perform in the best halls of the planet!
Only on June 13, 2018, brilliant and virtuosic Denis Matsuev, Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eyvazov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Roberto Alanya, Aida Garifullina and Albina Shagimuratova will perform together. The gala concert will be accompanied by the Mariinsky Theater Symphony Orchestra under the conductorship of maestro Valery Gergiev.

The musicians will gather together to dedicate their performance to the opening of the FIFA World Cup, because music and sports are universal languages spoken by people of different nationalities. Music and sports consolidate each other, while uniting people, regardless of their age and sex, profession and wealth, political views and religious beliefs. That is why the tradition to open the biggest sports competitions with significant gala concerts featuring the best performers from all over the world is so popular.
It is noteworthy that most often sports competitions are opened by opera stars, because classical music is a universal code that is understandable to people all over the world, no matter what language they speak. Montserrat Caballe and Freddie Mercury, Placido Domingo and José Carreras, who opened the Olympics in Barcelona, set a high performance bar. That was sustained several years later by Luciano Pavarotti, who glorified the Nessun Dorma aria throughout the world at the Winter Olympic Games in Turin.

A high level of mastery will be demonstrated by Russian musicians, who live in various countries around the world and perform in the best opera houses. They are known for their talent and virtuosity, diligence and unique attitude to life. They represent Russia in the world cultural arena today, and they will come to congratulate the host country of the FIFA World Cup 2018 on the opening of the grandiose sports festival. World opera stars will perform the best works of classical repertoire, including Russian music.
Placido Domingo and Juan Diego Flores are going to be guests of honour at the unique gig.
The concert of world opera stars in support of the FIFA World Cup is an event that will be remembered forever!

When: from 8 pm on June 13, 2018
