The chief conductor of the Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre Dmitri Yurovsky is going to perform in Volgograd on November 14.
The maestro will conduct the Eugeny Svetlanov State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia on the stage of the Volgograd Opera and Ballet Theatre (a.k.a. Tsaritsyn Opera). Both the State Orchestra and Dmitri Yurovsky will perform for the Volgograd audience for the first time; local mass media named this concert “grand events” in the city’s culture.
The first part of the concert will feature Sergei Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor; the soloist is Valentin Malinin, a winner of the 17th Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky International Competition in 2023. The second part will feature Symphony No. 4 in F minor by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
It’s worth reminding that Dmitri Yurovsky is music director and conductor of the new premiere of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre - Modest Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov. The premiere shows will take place on November 24, 25, 26. The role of Boris will be performed by the opera stars Dmitri Ulyanov and Garry Agadzhanyan; the conductor’s stand will be taken by maestro Yurovsky.
