Ildar Abdrazakov, holder of еру world's best bass singer title will perform on the stage of Astana Opera theater during the premiere on October 21, Tengrinews reports citing the press-service of the opera and ballet theater.
Abdrazakov will play a lead part in Attila opera by Giuseppe Verdi. The opera singer will perform on Kazakhstan stage for the first time, and according to him, it will be a significant event for him. "I've heard a lot about this beautiful city and its wonderful and kind people - aksakals. And now I will have a chance to meet the great nation of Kazakhstan," the singer said. He also noted the beauty of Astana Opera house adding that it had good chances of becoming one of the world's best theaters.
It is not a coincidence that Ildar Abdrazakov, the legendary opera singer, has been invited to perform the Attila part, because he gained the world fame for his performance of this role. Abdrazakov has played Attila opera together with the most famous geniuses of the opera art. "I played on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera with Riccardo Muti, in the Mariinsky Theater with Valeriy Gergiyev and I was lucky to perform the Attila part on the stage of Italian opera director Pier Luigi Pizzi in the Rome Opera". The Verdi's lead character is more of a conqueror rather than a barbarian. I'm using the text and music to create and show the Attila that was originally composed by Verdi, librettists Temistocle Solera and Francesco Piave," the singer said.
Attila opera by Giuseppe Verdi with Attila part sang by Ildar Abdrazakov will be repeated on October 23.
The Birth of Theater gala-concert will be held on October 24, 2013 in Astana Opera house.
The theatrical show with digital video effects will transfer the audience to the beginning of the world and then back to the present days. The audience will see the masterpieces of the music theater reborn in a new format. Besides the world classics, the music that has never been performed in Kazakhstan before will play from the stage as part of the show.
Astana Opera is located at Sharaishik Str. at the crossing with Turan Av.
