On May 28, 29 and 30, 2021 one of the most popular ballets in the classical legacy La Bayadère is to be premiered at the Great Hall of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. La Bayadère is an entrancing Oriental fairytale ballet of love, faithfulness and cunning

On May 28, 29 and 30, 2021 one of the most popular ballets in the classical legacy La Bayadère is to be premiered at the Great Hall of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. La Bayadère is an entrancing Oriental fairytale ballet of love, faithfulness and cunning. The ballet scenes are set in Ancient India. The prominent warrior Solor and the temple maiden dancer Nikia love each other passionately, meet secretly and plan to flee because they can only be together in the way of elopement.

From the first performance at the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre in 1877 La Bayadère has been constantly hailed by spectators. Its exotic color became a pledge of staginess, and the melodramatic story of disappointed hopes was filled with shades and shadows due to Marius Petipa’s sophisticated choreography.  

La Bayadère is to be represented at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre in its classical Mariinsky version originally staged by Marius Petipa with the gorgeous sets and costumes designed after the 1900 sketches. The performance is translated to the Primorsky Stage with the staging direction of Eldar Aliev, Honored Artistic Creator of Russia.

On May 28, 2021 the major roles in La Bayadère will be performed by the Primorsky Stage principal dancers Anna Samostrelova as Nikia and Sergei Umanetc as Solor. On May 29 and 30, 2021 the soloists of the Saint Petersburg Mariinsky Ballet, prizewinners at international competitions will appear in the major roles: Yekaterina Chebykina and Maria Iliushkina as Nikia, and Alexei Timofeyev and Victor Caixeta as Solor. The role of the Rajah’s daughter Gamzatti will be performed by the soloists of the Primorsky Stage Ballet Lilia Berezhnova (May 28, 30) and Katerina Floria (May 29). The baton is to be held by Anton Torbeev.

The XXXIV Rudolf Nureyev International Classic Ballet Festival in Kazan was opened with A Thousand and One Nights, a brilliant ballet of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. On May 13 and May 14, 2021 the ballet, which is unique in terms of beauty and technique, was represented at the M. Dzhalil Tatar State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. The ballet was choreographed by Eldar Aliev, Artistic Director of the Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre and Honored Artistic Creator of Russia

The XXXIV Rudolf Nureyev International Classic Ballet Festival in Kazan was opened with A Thousand and One Nights, a brilliant ballet of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. On May 13 and May 14, 2021 the ballet, which is unique in terms of beauty and technique, was represented at the M. Dzhalil Tatar State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. The ballet was choreographed by Eldar Aliev, Artistic Director of the Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre and Honored Artistic Creator of Russia. The key parts were performed by leading ballet soloists of the Primorsky Stage including Anna Samostrelova, Sergei Umanetc, Irina Sapozhnikova, Kanat Nadyrbek, Lilia Berezhnova, Denis Golov, Katerina Floria, and Guilherme Junio. Financial support for the tour was provided by the Primorsky branch of Sberbank.

The music for A Thousand and One Nights was written by Fikret Amirov, an Azerbaijan composer. To backcast the coloring of the Middle East, the composer used an endless repertoire of percussion instruments and included an Azerbaijan tar (‘traditionally crafted long-necked lute’) in the score. The female chorus and the soprano part sung by Anastasia Kikot, a soloist of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre, gave a special tint to the tone color.

Eldar Aliev staged the ballet in America and Europe over the years. His new version was created specially for the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. The choreographic solution was generally neoclassical with the scenic plastique reflecting the colorific charms of Oriental dances. Today the Primorsky State Ballet Company numbers 90 dancers and allows choreographers to create large-scale performances such as A Thousand and One Nights that includes, apart from sophisticated dance scenes, 13 consummate solo parts.

The sets and costumes were designed by Pyotr Okunev, Chief Designer of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. The sets for the ballet were mainly made in Saint Petersburg, in the oldest scenery shops of the Mariinsky Theatre, and partially – in the scenery shops of the Primorsky Stage. Over 200 gorgeously decorated costumes were made from unordinary combinations of specially dyed fabrics manually embroidered by experienced masters from Saint Petersburg.

Those two evenings the Symphony Orchestra of the M. Dzhalil Tatar State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre was under the baton of Ayyub Guliev, Principal Conductor and Musical Director of the Azerbaijan State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater and Honored Artist of the Republic of Azerbaijan. It was Ayyub Guliev who held the baton at the premiere of A Thousand and One Nights opening the V International Mariinsky Far East Festival, Vladivostok, in August 2020.

Roman Shtepa, Deputy Director of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre:

“The Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre is proud that we were honored to open such an important event as the International Festival of Classical Ballet named after Rudolf Nureyev with our ballet“ A Thousand and One Nights ”. We are sincerely grateful to the Primorsky branch of Sberbank for financial support in organizing and conducting this tour."

Sergey Radyushkin, Managing Director of the Primorsky branch of Sberbank:

“It is important for Sberbank to support art, especially in the region where we live and develop. We are glad that thanks to the bank's help, the ballet “A Thousand and One Nights” staged by the Honored Artistic Creator of Russia, Artistic Director of the Ballet Company of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre Eldar Aliev was able to see even more spectators. I am sure that this performance has adequately represented Primorye at the International Festival and has become a real gift for admirers of ballet art."

The title part will be sung by Natalia Muradymova, a guest soprano soloist from Moscow.

Turandot remained uncompleted because of the composer’s death in 1924 and became the top of Puccini’s oeuvre and a pinnacle of his creation. It made Turandot the most known Chinese princess in the music community. Having interwoven colors and traditions of classic Italian drama, the composer created his music fairy tale, assigning primary importance to colorful orchestral episodes, powerful choral scenes and vocal parts intended for outstanding voices.

Turandot was premiered at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre as lately as April 30, 2021 in its French version staged by Charles Roubaud.

On May 15, 2021 at 19:00 Sergei Dogadin, a rising star of Russian violin school, will perform in a symphonic concert at the Great Hall of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

This is the violinist Sergei Dogadin’s third visit to Vladivostok. For the first time he appeared at the Primorsky Stage in March 2016 after his winning the Second Prize (no First Prize was awarded) at the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition. Three years later the violinist got his revenge when he won the First Prize and Gold Medal at this prestigious Competition.

Dogadin knows the way how to sweep the audience away or hold the audience’s attention,” the reviewer of “Music Life” noted.

On May 15, 2021 the violinist will appear as a soloist in Dmitry Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 which is often compared with the composer’s symphonies for its tonetic seriousness or philosophic expression. The exceptionally challenging violin part demands that the performer should have his musicianship perfect and sometimes put his physical efforts.

The Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage under Pavel Smelkov’s baton will perform the famous Symphony No. 4 by Pyotr Tchaikovsky in Part II of the concert.

In 2021 the Moscow Easter Festival is going to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The Moscow Easter Festival was first held on the initiative of Valery Gergiev, Artistic Director of the Mariinsky Theatre, in Moscow from May 5, 2002 to May 19, 2002. The initial season of the Festival was acclaimed by reviewers as one of the greatest music projects of that year. In 2003 the Festival was supported by President Vladimir Putin and became all-Russian event gathering outstanding performers from all over the world and campanologists. The pool of participants was enlarged to include church choruses in addition to professional creative teams.

The legendary highlight of the II Moscow Easter Festival was Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov staged by Andrei Moguchy and Mikhail Pandzhavidze at the Cathedral Square of the Moscow Kremlin. It was raining very hard, and the wind was blowing coldly, and on the stage instead of strings there was only a piano that the Concert Mistress Irina Soboleva, Honored Artist of Russia, was playing, and soloists were singing perfectly despite the rain-slicked wooden stage. That day the Mariinsky Theatre did the impossible.

The XX Jubilee Moscow Easter Festival is to be held from April 22, 2021 to May 17, 2021 with the support of the Moscow Government and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and with the blessing from His Holiness Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia. Nowadays it is one of the most expectable and greatest events in the Russian cultural life. Spectators enjoy the Festival wide jubilee program including its symphonic, chorus, bell-ringing and charitable parts which unite the best folk traditions, national colors and great variety of Russian nature. As well as in previous years, the Festival is going to reaffirm its status of the world musical event. It keeps its main principles including charitable and educational activities and patriotism.

The Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre has been actively involved in the events of the Moscow Easter Festival since 2016.

In 2016 the XV Moscow Easter Festival was dedicated to the 125th anniversary of Sergei Prokofiev’s birth.

The Vladivostok audience heard brightly gifted performers from the Academy of Young Opera Signers of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Combined Choir of the Primorsky Metropolitanate.

In 2017 three concerts were given at the Primorsky Stage during the XVI Moscow Easter Festival dedicated to the 135th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky’s birth. The Combined Choir of the Primorsky Metropolitanate coordinated by Lyudmila Makarenko gave a concert. And for the first time the Primorsky Stage took part in the Moscow Easter Festival Choral Program. The Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage conducted by Pavel Smelkov gave a charity concert in the Knyaze-Volkonsky Garrison (Khabarovsk Region). As a part of the Festival’s Symphonic Program, the Primorsky Stage hosted performances by the South Korean virtuoso pianist Seong-Jin Cho, the First Prize and the Gold Medal winner at the Chopin International Piano Competition, together with the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage under the baton of a very talented Singaporean conductor Darrell Ang.

In 2018 the Primorsky Stage appeared in Vladivostok and Ussuriysk during the XVII Moscow Easter Festival. In the run-up to the Festival a broadcast of a concert performance of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s opera Iolanta being on stage of the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall (Moscow) and featuring the Mariinsky Opera soloists, Chorus and Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev, was transmitted to the Chamber Hall of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

On March 26, March 27 and March 28, 2021 the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre will present the premiere of Johann Strauss’s high-spirited operetta Die Fledermaus staged by Alexei Stepanyuk. The Orchestra is to be under the baton of Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage

On March 26, March 27 and March 28, 2021 the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre will present the premiere of Johann Strauss’s high-spirited operetta Die Fledermaus staged by Alexei Stepanyuk. The Orchestra is to be under the baton of Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage.

Die Fledermaus is a classic dance operetta by Johann Strauss II who is also known as “The Waltz King” from Vienna. It is a pearl of the repertoire of the world’s leading opera houses. Its comic plot hinges on a relationship between the husband, Heinrich Eisenstein, and his wife, Rosalinde, who go through a family crisis. The unfaithful husband has to newly fall in love with his own wife, opening new facets of her womanly charm and wit.

The operetta will be presented in its stage version by the Saint Petersburg maître Alexei Stepanyuk, an Honored Art Worker of Russia. Having many times collaborated with the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre, he has staged Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and Verdi’s Aida. Judging by reviews from critics, Alexei Stepanyuk’s productions are notable for their meaningful details and the marriage of music and visual dressing. The Stage Director says about his new production of the Strauss’s operetta, “Now we are in serious times, and such joyfully inspiring music and such operetta, gay with songs and full of champagne splashes and beautiful setting and costumes, may become an antidote for a somewhat depressed mood, to which we may be spurred by the circumstances.”

The sets and costumes for Die Fledermaus were designed by Vyacheslav Okunev, a People’s Artist of Russia; Ilya Ustyantsev is a Stage Director and Choreographer. The operetta will be performed in Russian, and according to the producers, such performance is intelligible and close to the audience and gives more scope for artists’ creative improvisations.

Alena Diyanova, Anastasia Kikot or Elizaveta Senatorova will appear as his wife Rosalinde, and Olga Zharikova, Alina Mikhailik or Maria Suzdaltseva as Adele.
