Spectators who have bought tickets to the premiere of Daniil Frenkel's opera Without a Dowry on November 25 should come to the Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre 40 minutes before the performance starts. They’ll have the opportunity to attend the second lecture of the educational cycle 30 Minutes Before the Premiere.
On November 25, Lyudmila Gavrilova, head of the Department of Music History at the Dmitri Hvorostovsky Siberian Institute of Arts, doctor of art history, member of the Union of Composers of Russia, invites the audience to a lecture in the theatre lobby on the second floor. It starts at 6.30 p.m. Lyudmila Vladimirovna is also Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Lyudmila Gavrilova will tell spectators about the literary basis of the show: the play by Alexander Ostrovsky, as well as about the music of Daniil Frenkel, the production of the Krasnoyarsk Opera House. Production director Daniil Dmitriev and production designer Maria Vysotskaya will take part in the session, ready to answer spectator’s questions.
The Theatre and Lyudmila Gavrilova are planning to make these before-the-premiere-meetings regular. The first event of the lecture cycle was the session on October 3 on the eve of the One-Act Ballets Night: The Black Man and Nijinsky. Admission to the pre-premiere lectures is free.
Daniil Frenkel's opera Without a Dowry will also be performed on 26 and 27 November.
