The soloist of the Krasnoyarsk opera and ballet theatre Darya Ryabinko will participate at the XXXV International opera festival named after Fedor Chaliapin who these days passes at Kazan on the stage of the Tatar academic state opera and ballet theatre named after M. Dzhalil.
Among actors who will decorate this holiday, more than 40 invited opera singers and conductors from Russia, Italy, the USA, Great Britain, Austria, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Germany. The program of chaliapin festival had included such masterpieces of world opera stage as "Aida", "Boris Godunov", "Eugene Onegin", "Turandot", "Madame Butterfly", "La Trovatore" and "Il barbiere di Siviglia".
Darya Ryabinko will perform the main parts at two operas – on February 13 at "Boris Godunov" of Modest Mussorgsky and on February 16 at Giuseppe Verdi's "Aida".
"It is already second time when I was invited to participate at chaliapin festival. And if last year I performed two small parts, then this time I will play leading roles: Amneris at the opera "Aida" and Marina Mnishek at "Boris Godunov", – Darya Ryabinko says. – The party Amneris is interesting to me in every respect. It is one of the brightest roles for a mezzo-soprano! I executed her on the stage of the Tatar opera and ballet theatre and during the tours with troupe of theatre across the Netherlands in the autunm of 2016 more than once.
If to speak about Marina Mnishek from "Boris Godunov", then I am just overflowed by emotions as has prepared this party for our theatre, the premiere of "The Polish act" was held on February 2 during "Parade of stars at Opera", and work on this role has brought me huge pleasure!
At Kazan the opera "Boris Godunov" is always shown in the same day – on February 13, at the birthday of Fedor Chaliapin. This central event of the festival on which a large number of guests and critics gathers. And I always dreamed to execute Marina Mnishek at the homeland of this outstanding bass in day of his birth. I didn't expect in any way that my desire will be granted so quickly, and I will be able to become Marina Mnishek, the proud and haughty Pole not only for the Krasnoyarsk viewer, but also for Kazan!"
