On April 16, several soloists of the Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre will come to the stage in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera Don Giovanni for the first time.
The vocal parts in this "opera of operas" are real tests for any artist. But for the three soloists of the Krasnoyarsk Opera House, the event of April 16 will be especially important.
Sevastian Martyniuk, soloist of the opera company of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre, will debut in the title role of Don Giovanni. A special symbolic connotation to his performance of a "punished libertine" is given by the fact that Sevastian has twice performed along with Dmitri Hvorostovsky. In December 2014, Sevastian performed the song Moscow Nights along with him; in June 2017 - the song Moscow Windows. The premiere of Don Giovanni took place in our theatre on October 21, 2021 as part of the Dmitri Hvorostovsky Festival: it was its major event. Our illustrious compatriot Dmitri Hvorostovsky performed the parts of Don Giovanni and Leporello on the most famous stages of the world.
Sevastian Martyniuk graduated from the Krasnoyarsk Academy of Music and Theatre (now the Hvorostovsky Siberian State Institute of Arts); in the autumn of 2017, he was accepted into the opera company of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre as a trainee. Since 2018, he has been a principal singer of the Theatre. Sevastian's repertoire includes about twenty roles, among them are: Eugene Onegin, Duke Robert in Iolanta, Frederic in Lakme, Figaro in Le Nocce di Figaro, Dr.Malatesta in Don Pasquale, Vasily Surikov in Alexander Tchaikovsky's opera Yermak. Sevastian Martyniuk is a winner of numerous international competitions.
Sevastian is well known to the Krasnoyarsk audience, but the other two debutants joined the company of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre less than a season ago.
Laureate of a number of international competitions Sergei Telenkov will come to the stage as Leporello for the first time on April 16. Sergei has already taken the stage of the Krasnoyarsk Opera House as Prince Galitsky in Prince Igor, Silvano in Un Ballo in Maschera, Nilakantha in Lakme, he sang bass in Handel's oratorio Messiah and Christmas Oratorio by Bach.
On April 16, Sergei Samusev will make his debut in the part of the formidable Commander. On the Krasnoyarsk stage, Sergei performed the roles of Bermyata in Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Snow Maiden, the villainous conspirator Tom in Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera; now he’s working on roles in the operas I Capuleti e i Montecchi by Vincenzo Bellini and Yermak by Alexander Tchaikovsky.
New interpretations of the parts of the great opera are an additional touch that can attract the audience to the Krasnoyarsk State Opera and Ballet Theatre on April 16.
