3. Imagery of the performance, their internal versatility will leave no one indifferent.
At the Opera and Ballet Theater - the opera "Catherine". Join the thousands of great Kobzar creators these days in Shevchenko.
It was from the opera Kateryna that the theatrical life of Taras Shevchenko's works began. The first production belongs to Mark Kropyvnytskyi.
For your attention - the opera by Nikolai Arkas in the musical version of Gleb Taranov. The peculiarity of the production was that Nikolai Arkas introduced to her a character who was not present in Shevchenko - Andrew, who sincerely loved Catherine. Such a decision strengthened the lyrical side and emphasized the contrasting psychology of situations depicted in the poem.
Kateryna, being the first Ukrainian folk-opera opera, demanded a new approach of playwrights and special attention to the level of artists: this was prompted by the lack of conversational dialogues.
The work captures the melody and emotional expressiveness characteristic of the Ukrainian folk song. Especially colorful choral scenes. Thanks to the talent and efforts of the entire theater staff, the incredible power of maternal love, which only Shevchenko could portray so flamboyantly, is revealed to the audience.
Are waiting for you!
