1. Opera is Verdi! Verdi is an opera! So you can assert it to the fullest and it will not be empty words! The genial Italian has created a miracle for all of us, but we do not always realize what kind of personal artistic feat he has made.
2. Sounding the works that you will not hear in Kiev - these are the opera arias that are not part of the repertoire of opera theaters of Ukraine.
3. Soloists of the concert - young and professionally formed vocalists, laureates of international competitions
On February 1, the Viva Verdi concert will take place at the Actor's House
Verdi essentially expanded the arsenal of artistic means of the opera as a musical and dramatic genre, reaching the unbelievable still life truth in the transmission of exclusively musical means of human emotions and psychological experiences, while preserving the fact that perhaps it is the most important thing in it - the sense of the sacrament, the elevated conventionality.
An essential feature of the composer's style is democracy, it has expanded the audience of its fans, and, in general, music lovers and opera genres. This democracy has nothing to do with what we would now call "pussycat". Verdi, in practice, always remains within the framework of high art. Such a combination - the fate of only great artists.
Sounds of the works that you will not hear in Kiev - these are opera arias that are not part of the repertoire of opera theaters of Ukraine: arias from the operas Attila, Corsar, the Power of Fate, Hernani. Also, the operatic arias: Nabucco, Macbeth, Rigoletto, Ball masquerade, Aida.
Verdi's opera music will complement his only string quartet in the minor minority performed by the ensemble "Misericordia" - the leader of Maria Berlad and the charming Variations on the theme of the opera Rigoletto for clarinet and piano performed by Yuri Savinsky.
Soloists of the concert are young and professionally formed vocalists, laureates of international competitions: Tatiana Bondar, Mariam Ravashdeh, Roman Strakhov, Solomiya Pavlenko.
