About event

Why is it worth going to the Zaporozhets beyond the Danube?

1. Watch an exciting production based on the history of Ukraine.
2. The most popular work for more than 150 years.
3. Listen to beautiful folk songs.

The fame to the composer Semyon Gulak-Artemovsky was brought precisely by the opera Zaporozhets beyond the Danube, written in 1862. It is believed that the work was the first to bring Ukrainian folk dances and songs to the big stage. Another striking feature is dialogs full of colloquial speech. All this helped the author to create truly colorful images.

“Zaporozhets beyond the Danube” is a comic opera in 3 acts. On the Turkish bank of the Danube live Ukrainians who dream of returning home. The adopted daughter of the Cossack Ivan Karas by the name of Oksana especially misses his beloved - Cossack Andrei. Meanwhile, Karas himself, by coincidence, is in the palace of the Turkish Sultan.

How will the story end for Oksana and Andrey, who decide to flee to their homeland? And can Ivan Karas become Urhan and start a harem? Come to the opera to enjoy the national flavor, funny episodes and bright characters of the production!

Libretto by Semyon Gulak-Artyomovsky, literary edition of Maxim Rylsky.
Duration - 2 hours 20 minutes (with intermission).
