Nomination for the ’Golden Mask’ and a new director at the Krasnoyarsk Opera House automatic translate
KRASNOYARSK. Dismissal and new appointments in the opera and ballet theater.
Appointment of the new chief director in the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theater was preceded by an unexpected for many non-renewal of the contract with the former. Versions of the dismissal of Nadezhda Stolbova, who held this post for three years, and with it the conductor Volosnikov, is enough. The criterion of the effectiveness of any leader, be it a creative team or a weaving factory, is the success of the team headed by him, his development and the movement ahead.
The extraordinary director’s handwriting of Stolbova fell in the hearts of spectators, critics, other categories not indifferent to the high art of the public. The recent premiere of La Traviata was a huge success, bringing the theater a nomination for the Golden Mask. Impressive were other works of the tandem Stolbova and Volosnikova: the synthesis of artistic words and music in the evenings of the memory of writer Viktor Astafiev, concerts dedicated to the anniversary of the Victory, with the participation of Sergei Garmash and Veniamin Smekhov. The more paradoxical is the Krasnoyarsk metamorphosis, whatever their true reasons.
In this ambiguous situation, Neeme Kuningas (Neeme Kuningas), just appointed as the theater’s chief director, began his work. In the creative piggy bank Kuningasa - dozens of productions in major theaters of the world, 20 years of experience in the Estonian National Opera. One of the most successful and striking productions of the last decade was the joint work of the Estonian director and Dmitry Bertman, the head of Moscow’s Helikon-Opera, over the opera Wallenberg. The protagonist of the opera of composer Erkki-Sven Tuur is a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews during the war.
Plans for the next six months - the production of the popular in the XIX century, now virtually unknown to the audience of Caesar Cui’s opera «The Prisoner of the Caucasus», in which Leonid Sobinov once shone. «Pen break» in the new theater was for Kuningasa program dedicated to George Sviridov. The artistic director of the opera company is Larisa Mirzoyeva.
