The Opera Troop Of the Bolshoi Theatre Performed In Vienna
May 15, 2014 11:51


The Vienna audience warmly greeted the opera troop of the Bolshoi Theatre on Monday evening, the troop is leaded by the famous conductor Gennadiy Rozhdestvensky, and it gave a concert performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The Tsar's Bride” at the historic Theatre an der Wien.

Although a lot of Russian music is performed at the Viennese musical scenes, “The Tsar's Bride” is a rare visitor outside Russia, and its performance by Russian artists has become an event for the musical life of the Austrian capital. The performers of female roles - the young soprano Olga Kulchinskaya (Martha) and the mezzo-soprano Agunda Kulaeva (Lyubasha) – had a particular success on Monday.

“The Bolshoi Theatre is a gem of Russian-Austrian cultural seasons of 2013-2015 years” - the Russia’s ambassador to Austria Sergey Nechayev said at a reception after the concert, congratulating the musicians. The director of the Bolshoi Theatre Vladimir Urin drew attention to the fact that “The Tsar's Bride” involved mostly young artists – the members of the youth program of the Bolshoi Theatre in collaboration with the experienced maestro of the older generation Rozhdestvensky. The situation is different when we speak of another Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera “The Golden Cockerel” which will also sound in Vienna on Tuesday: the experienced opera singers will sing under the control of the young conductor Pavel Klinichev. “We understood it very well that we were going to the city where people know what music is, where they can sing, and therefore, it was very exciting for us, despite the importance of the theatre” - Urin said.

Unlike the Vienna State Opera, the historic Theatre an der Wien, or the Vienna theatre on the river (which was removed into the pipe in this part of the city from the middle of the XIX century) belongs to the city. The concert was attended by the Mayor of Vienna, one of the most influential politicians of Austria Michael Häupl. The hall was also attended by the world-famous Russian opera singer Anna Netrebko who warmly welcomed her colleagues. The tour of the Bolshoi Theatre, which has not performed in Austria since 1997, will be completed on Tuesday by the performance of  “The Golden Cockerel”.
