A Beautiful Farewell to Winter and a Musical Gift for Ladies: Concert Playbill of the Primorsky Stage for February and March

Inspiring and unconventional musical programs are in store for audiences of different ages on the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

On February 18, 2024, the ambitious “Pushkin – 225” cycle will continue in the Great Hall. In Part I of the concert, the audience will enjoy Winter Dreams, one of the first symphonic works by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. In this romantic symphony, the composer has managed, in an ingenious and vivid manner, to convey various hallmarks of the Russian winter landscape. Part II will feature romances and musical illustrations to the story The Blizzard, by Georgy Sviridov, a Russian classicist of the 20th century. Pushkin’s winter imagery was particularly appealing to Sviridov. The Theater’s Principal Conductor, Pavel Smelkov, will take the stand this evening. Baritone Alexei Repin, a singer of the Primorsky Stage Opera Company, will be the soloist.

On February 23 and 25, 2024, a family premiere is expected in the Chamber Hall, a musical fairy tale Ruslan and Lyudmila by Mikhail Glinka accompanied by sand animation. The Theatre company will present their interpretation of the magical fairy tale opera based on the poem of the same name by Alexander Pushkin, containing the themes of the Russian fairy tale epic and glorifying heroism and nobility of feelings. Both young and adult audiences will enjoy not only listening, but also watching the concert, as it will be accompanied by picturesque sand animation used as decoration.

On March 7, 2024, the Theatre will give a luxurious musical bouquet to the ladies, a festive concert Flowers and jewelry. The chamber evening will become a symbolic dedication to the beautiful half of humanity. Lyrical songs, exquisite romances, vivid pop numbers and ingenious, sparkling instrumental miniatures – all these musical pieces, in one way or another, will bring up the topic of flowers and jewelry. At all times, these have been traditional gifts to ladies as a sign of love and admiration. The pearls of the chamber repertoire will be performed by soloists of the Primorsky Stage Opera Company. The host of the concert is Elizaveta Sushchenko.
