Moscow City Opera




It comes as some surprise that at the turn of the century, in spite of many of the world opera houses undergoing difficult and major changes, in Moscow there has emerged no fewer than three new opera companies.

The creation and immediate success of Moscow City Opera, now in its sixth successful year, is an indication not only of new independence of spirit prevailing in Russia but also reflects a revival and fascination with this traditionally Russian genre and the nations great classical music heritage.

The advantages of this newly independent company are its flexibility and the freedom to perform as wide a repertoire as possible, combine with a company comprised of artists whose training and experience is second to none. The company is composed of some sixteen soloists, a chorus of twenty five and an orchestra of forty members. But of course, amount of members can vary from one production to another.

The soloists of the company conditionally can be divided into two groups: internationally acclaimed opera stars and young rising stars, only recently or just received their first recognition on Russian or international vocal competitions.

The chorus of Moscow City Opera was formerly known as the Kremlin Chapel Choir, selected by the government for its excellencies and wide range of performance, now undertaking a new role under direction of Gennady Dmitriak.

The orchestra of Moscow City Opera company is led by one of Russias most experienced and dynamic Concert Masters, Gregory Krasko.

Set designers working with Opera include legendary names such as Valery Leventhal, Victor Volsky, Sergei Barkhin and Lev Solodovnikov.

Moscow City Opera aims to be a flexible and compact touring company yet to retain all the artistic excellence of production, sound, staging and lighting expected of Russias larger companies. That the company has attracted some of the finest orchestral musicians, singers, directors and designers drawn from Moscows Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the Gnessins Russian Academy of Music augurs for its future.

Three productions are currently in repertoire Rossinis Barbiere di Siviglia, Verdis La Traviata and Mozarts Le Nozze di Figaro, while in preparation are Tchaikovskys Eugene Onegin and Puccinis La Boheme.

During the sixth Season Moscow City Opera gave many of successful performances in Moscow and its environs and its intention for immediate future is to extend its touring to other parts of Russia and abroad where there are audiences keen to experience committed, polished and uplifting productions of operatic works.
