Choirmaster: Yulia Senyukova

Stage Director: Alexey Veiro

Lighting Designer: Maya Shavdatuashvili

The programme comprises:

Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Maid of Orleans, act 1 of the opera in concert

The composition is French in its subject and French in its form. Four acts with a ballet excerpt in the second act is a simple formula of the absolutely true French grand opera.

Igor Stravinsky’s Oedipus rex, an opera-oratorio in concert

The ascetic and at the same time majestic opera-oratorio presents the chorus as a narrator of the action – it is an old principle in the music of the 20th century. The highly professional New Opera Choir steps forward.
