Astana Opera symphony orchestra performs at Mariinsky theatre
The Astana Opera State Symphony Orchestra returned from their tour in Russia. Concerts in the famous Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg were sold out. Musicians performed the full version of the suite of Tles Kazhgaliev "Steppe legend" for the residents of the ‘cultural’ capital of Russia. According to People's Artist of Russia Valery Gergiev, this composition should become a hallmark of the theater. It is expected that the next tour will be held in Paris.
Abzal MUKHITDINOV, CONDUCTOR, HONORED ARTIST OF KAZAKHSTAN:
After the performance of Steppe Legend of Tles Kazhgaliev maestro Gergiev was very puzzled and surprised. It is indeed a very worthy thing he has heard in the past 15-20 years of cooperation with Kazakhstan and he immediately called Radion Shchedrin in Paris.
