Bashkir Opera will show "Attila" performance on historical stage of Bolshoi Theater in Moscow
The Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater will show the "Attila" performance at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. The event will take place on the historical stage on March 13.
According to Ildar Abdrazakov, the lead roles in the opera will be performed by himself and Veronika Dzhioeva.
"The Bolshoi Theater is one of the largest and most important stages in the world. It stands on a par with the Covent Garden, La Scala, the Paris Opera, the Vienna Opera — the best theaters in which the world's greatest singers perform," said Ildar Abdrazakov in an interview with the Bashinform News Agency. "It was planned a long time ago, so we were lucky: both my schedule allowed me to perform on that day, and the schedule of the Bolshoi Theater allowed it to host Attila."
The Bashkir Theater showed the "Salavat Yulaev" play by Zagir Ismagilov as part of the Decade of Bashkir literature and art on the historical stage of the Bolshoi Theater in 1955. The opera was presented five times during the Decade. Subsequently, the Bolshoi Theater featured separate pieces by the Bashkir Theater artists, but the performances have never been shown since then.
