Tickets for the premiere of the comic opera Les Mamelles de Tirésias by Francis Poulenc went on sale. The one-act performance will take place on September 14 at 6 p.m. in the art space loft Quadrat, which is the new site for the Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk Opera House.
Unusual, stylish Quadrat loft is a suitable place for applying bold ideas. One of such ideas was the production of the opera Les Mamelles de Tirésias staged by Artistic Director of our theatre Sergei Bobrov. Private viewing of the performance took place in the month of May, 2019 and aroused the great interest of spectators and experts. In the new 42nd theatre season, all lovers of musical theatre will be able to see the vivid performance. Tickets can be purchased online on the Krasbilet operator’s website and at the box office and on the theatre’s website.
Les Mamelles de Tirésias is an eccentric, funny and frisky opera. Its libretto is based on a play by the French surrealist writer Guillaume Apollinaire written at the beginning of the 20th century, but the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre will present its own rendition of the story. The libretto (its author is Eleksias Trouve) is adapted to the reality of contemporary times: the story is set in a Soviet coal mine. This is an extremely elaborate story of love between a wife and a husband, and in the finale, the procreation is proclaimed to be the highest value of humanity. The music director and conductor of the performance is Vladimir Lande, the designer is Fiodor Arkhipov, the choirmaster is Dmitri Khodosh, the concertmaster is Natalia Ageeva.
The address of the experimental art space loft Quadrat is Krasnaya Armiya Street, 10, building 4.
