The Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage traditionally goes on a summerly tour in the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg with four popular ballet productions

The Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage traditionally goes on a summerly tour in the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg with four popular ballet productions.

On August 3, 2021 the tour program was opened with a repertoire novelty – A Thousand and One Nights ballet by Fikret Amirov, an Azerbaijan composer. The ballet is choreographed by Eldar Aliev, Artistic Director of the Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. The primary roles were performed by soloists of the Primorsky Stage such as Irina Sapozhnikova, Anna Samostrelova, Sergei Umanetc, Kanat Nadyrbek, Lilia Berezhnova, and Katerina Floria. Members of the Saint Petersburg Ballet Company of the Mariinsky Theatre appeared on the stage together with Vladivostok dancers. The performances were conducted by Ayyub Guliyev, a Guest Conductor from Baku who held the baton a year ago at the premiere of A Thousand and One Nights at the V International Mariinsky Far East Festival, Vladivostok.

The tour will continue with such ballets as Le Corsaire, The Sleeping Beauty and Giselle till August 15, 2021.

“As a rule, we try to show performances that do not run in Saint Petersburg. This time we represent three original works by the Primorsky Stage. Their names may have something in common with those in the repertoire of the Mariinsky Theatre, however, they are quite different”, – said Eldar Aliev.

The ballets will be performed on the Historic Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre and at the Mariinsky II. The Mariinsky Orchestra will be conducted by Anton Torbeev, a Conductor of the Primorsky Stage.

On August 8, 2021 Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s mystic opera The Queen of Spades will become the final event at the Mariinsky Festival. The opera staged by Yuri Temirkanov will be powerfully represented by a cast of guest performers and soloists of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre

 On August 8, 2021 Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s mystic opera The Queen of Spades will become the final event at the Mariinsky Festival. The opera staged by Yuri Temirkanov will be powerfully represented by a cast of guest performers and soloists of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

In 1890 Pyotr Tchaikovsky composed his opera The Queen of Spades based on Alexander Pushkin’s short story of the same name. It is a story in which a consuming passion for gambling is opposed with an unearthly love. The poor officer Herman falls in love with Liza, a girl from a noble family. Having heard of a secret of three winning cards which is kept by the old Countess, Herman resolved to draw the secret from her, win a large sum of money and be with the one he loves. Will Herman be able to stop in time on a slippery slope towards easy money?

The Queen of Spades staged by Yuri Temirkanov and designed by Igor Ivanov became a rare classic example of opera direction having a long happy life on the stage. The features of Saint Petersburg in the Catherine Age, in which the scene of the opera is laid, were thoroughly reconstructed in Temirkanov’s staging. All costumes and furnishings in a gambling house, quarters or rooms were in accordance with their prototypes in the past. Premiered in 1984 at the Kirov Theatre (presently the Mariinsky Theatre), the opera was accorded international recognition and had a long happy life on the stage.

The opera staging was shifted from Saint Petersburg to Vladivostok in December 2015. At the premiere the opera was performed by the Mariinsky Theatre lead soloists under the direction of the maestro Valery Gergiev. Since then the Far East audience has heard legendary singers and young stars performing the primary roles of this opera.

At the closing of the VI Mariinsky Festival on August 8, 2021 the primary roles in The Queen of Spades will be sung by Najmiddin Mavlyanov as Herman, Elena Razgulyaeva as Liza, Ariunbaatar Ganbaatar as Prince Yeletsky, Marat Mukhametzyanov as Count Tomsky, Yulia Matochkina as Polina, and Irina Kolodyazhnaya as the Countess. The opera will be conducted by Pavel Smelkov.
