On 05:30 p.m. March 17, the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre will host a press conference on the premiere performances of the War and Peace opera to the music of Sergei Prokofiev based on the novel of the same name by Lev Tolstoy

On 05:30 p.m. March 17, the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre will host a press conference on the premiere performances of the War and Peace opera to the music of Sergei Prokofiev based on the novel of the same name by Lev Tolstoy.

The opera was directed by Kristina Larina who performed the author’s version of this play in 2016 in St Petersburg at the Mariinsky Concert Hall. The rapid development of the storyline captivates the viewer, transferring the action from “Peace” to “War”.

Premiere performances of the War and Peace will take place on March 20 to 22 at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre under the direction of Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage. The parts will be sung by the joint team of soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Primorsky Stage: Yekaterina Goncharova, Efim Zavalny, Maria Suzdaltseva, Alexei Bublik, Laura Bustamante, Tatiana Makarchuk, Larisa Diadkova, Irina Kolodyazhnaya, Alexander Morozov, Alexander Diyanov, Alexei Smirnov, Roman Krukovich, Mergen Sandanov, Alexei Kostyuk, Vyacheslav Vasilyev, Marat Mukhametzyanov, Yuri Vlasov and others.

The journalists’ questions will be answered by the Stage Director Kristina Larina, Chief Stage Designer of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre Pyotr Okunev, Principal Concert Mistress of the Mariinsky Theatre (St. Petersburg), Honoured Artist of Russia Irina Soboleva, Principal Chorus Mistress of the Primorsky Stage Larisa Shveikovskaya, and by the Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre Pavel Smelkov.

A large-scale cycle of symphonic programs to commemorate the anniversary of the great composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, continues on the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. Spectators will hear some of the most famous works of the German classic performed by the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage under the baton of the Principal Conductor Pavel Smelkov

A large-scale cycle of symphonic programs to commemorate the anniversary of the great composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, continues on the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. Spectators will hear some of the most famous works of the German classic performed by the Mariinsky Orchestra of the Primorsky Stage under the baton of the Principal Conductor Pavel Smelkov.

A symphonic concert from the Beethoven – 250 cycle will take place on March 15 in the Great Hall. The program includes Symphony No. 2 in D major and Symphony No. 3 in E flat major (Eroica). The soloist of the Mariinsky Opera of the Primorsky Stage Liliya Kadnikova will perform the Ah! Perfido concert aria for soprano and orchestra conducted by maestro Pavel Smelkov.

The program of this concert introduces the public to symphonic works that open a new period not only in the life of Beethoven himself, but in the whole genre as well. The Viennese classic composer makes symphonies more amplitudinous, and increases the composition of the orchestra. He imparts not only philosophical, but also social and political ideas into music. It was at this time that Ludwig van Beethoven recognized of encroaching deafness. It also influenced the musical content.

Beethoven’s Second Symphony is dedicated to Karl Alois, Prince Lichnowsky, an Austrian philanthropist who is remembered for his patronage of music. The Symphony was premiered in the Theater an der Wien in Vienna in April 1803, and was conducted by the composer.

Beethoven originally dedicated the Third Symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte, for whom he had the highest esteem. However, the composer got disappointed in his political views and changed the dedication. The title Sinfonia eroica eventually became a symbol of the composer’s struggle against his incurable deafness.

On March 20-22, the world-famous War and Peace opera by Sergei Prokofiev, based on the novel by Lev Tolstoy, will be premiered at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. The main parts will be sung by the leading soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre (St Petersburg). The symbolism of this year’s opera premiere is that it is closely associated with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War

On March 20-22, the world-famous War and Peace opera by Sergei Prokofiev, based on the novel by Lev Tolstoy, will be premiered at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. The main parts will be sung by the leading soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre (St Petersburg). The symbolism of this year’s opera premiere is that it is closely associated with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War.

“Such serious anniversary dates as the Victory Day Anniversary should be marked by large masterpieces. And, upbuilding the arch between the War of 1812 and the Great Patriotic War, we make it clear that such tragic events are always reflected in the works of Russian composers”, said Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

The authors and directors of the War and Peace are: Stage Director Kristina Larina, Set Designer Pyotr Okunev, Principal Concert Mistress of the Mariinsky Theatre, Honoured Artist of Russia Irina Soboleva, and Principal Chorus Mistress of the Primorsky Stage Larisa Shveikovskaya. Costumes by Tatyana Noginova have already been used in the production by Andrei Konchalovsky in 2000. Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage, will take the conductor’s console.

“To my mind, the War and Peace opera is perhaps the most grandiose work of Russian opera classics. This is not the first time we have staged Prokofiev’s operas. In our repertoire we have The Love for Three Oranges, and we have presented The Gambler for four times. However, the scale and grandeur of this score is a separate task for the orchestra, an enormous challenge for singers and the choir. I think that our team is already ready to conquer this peak, and I hope that this production will be remembered for a long time and will become a bright event of this spring on the Primorsky stage of the Mariinsky Theatre”, said Pavel Smelkov.

On March 8, a gala concert with the participation of opera soloists will be held in the Great Hall of the Primorsky Stage. The artists will treat the public to arias and duets from various Russian operas

On March 8, a gala concert with the participation of opera soloists will be held in the Great Hall of the Primorsky Stage. The artists will treat the public to arias and duets from various Russian operas.

As envisioned by the Principal Conductor, the core idea of this evening is not only to compliment the ladies, but also to reveal the intrigue and to hint what operas will soon be shown to the Primorsky audience. “The program of the gala concert to be held on March 8 was compiled for a reason. It will contain fragments of operas to be shown to the Primorsky audience in the 2020/21 season. Timed to coincide with the International Women’s Day, it is not a mere selection of entertainment pieces, but a series of duets and arias that reveal a wide palette of feelings and emotions seething around loving and beloved women: from romantically tragic to magically enthusiastic”, said Pavel Smelkov, Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage.

Three operas by the great Russian composers: Mazeppa by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Boris Godunov by Modest Mussorgsky and Ruslan and Lyudmila by Mikhail Glinka are united by the fact that they are based on the works by the great Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, and each one has prominent female figures. The concert will introduce the main characters to the audience. During the festive night, the audience will hear the most beautiful arias and duets from these operas, and overtures. The soloists of the Mariinsky Opera of the Primorsky Stage, the choir and orchestra under the direction of the Principal Conductor of the Primorsky Stage Pavel Smelkov will be on the stage.
