Astana Opera's Sundet Baigozhin to perform at Arena di Verdi
The lead singer of the Astana Opera Sundet Baigozhin has won the audition at the Arena di Verdi opera house, Tengrinews reports.
The young opera singer will perform Lord Enrico Ashton’s part in Gaetano Donizetti’s tragic opera Lucia di Lammermoor. Baigozhin received three parts at the Arena di Verdi. In 2014, the Kazakh baritone will perform peasant Masetti’s part in Don Juan and Figaro’s part in Gioachino Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.
“I’m proud of my country and happy to represent it on such a level. Many opera singers dream of performing at Arena di Verona,” Baigozhin said. Opera singers from all over the world participated in the auditions, but not many get the honor to perform on the stage of the Italian opera house.
Baigozhin is the first Kazakhstani opera singer to perform at Arena di Verona.
