The festival has become an important creative experience for a Mongolian singer
Today at the stage of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet House within the III Krasnoyarsk International Music Festival the premiere of the opera-epic Sadko to music by N. Rimsky-Korsakov took place. This performance is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the great stage director Boris Pokrovsky, who staged Sadko in the Bolshoi Theatre in 1949.
The opera is based on the plot of the ancient epic about Sadko, a proud Novgorod gusli player. The Gusli and Destiny led him through travels to far lands and estates of the Sea King. The Adventures of Sadko is a great foundation for fantasy of an artist, so it was not by chance that the Set Designer of the staging of this opera in the Bolshoi Theatre Fedor Fedorov got the Stalin Prize for this work.
Panoramas of Veliky Novgorod, trade squares, boyars’ mansions, and the underwater kingdom of the Sea King - all these sets were carefully recreated literally bit by bit by an academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Dmitry Cherbadzhi. For the performance more than 300 richly decorated with pearls and precious stones costumes were specially sewn.
In the new staging next to the "paint" sets there are 3D technologies, due to which a viewer can see both the raging sea, and floating on the lake swans on the stage... But the main "go" of the play was the old Sadko’s boat, which during the performance sails the stage open spaces.
The title part in the opera Sadko was sung by the famous tenor, soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre, the Honored Artist of Russia Mikhail Gubsky. His stage partners were the second prize winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011 Amartuvshin Enkhbat (Mongolia) in the role of the Venetian guest, O Ken Sik (South Korea) as the Indian guest, and Altanhuyag Bayasgalan (Mongolia) as the Varangian guest. The conductor – the Honored Artist of Russia Anatoly Chepurnoy.
"I am very pleased that the festival organizers and the management of the theater have given me the opportunity to take part in the festival - said Altanhuyag Bayasgalan. - Participation in such events is an important experience for me. I like very much Russian music and the fact that I have sung in "Sadko" is a great luck! As I don’t speak Russian, it was hard for me to work over the role. But it seems to me, that I have still coped with the role and the audience was pleased with my performance. "
