Orchestra

Orchestra of Helikon-Opera is a team of 126 highly proficient musicians, which was established over ten years ago. The defining role in its formation was played by the first principal conductor of the theatre Professor Kirill Tikhonov, People’s Artist of Russia. The orchestra of an opera theatre is an entirely unique musical structure. The symphonic orotundity there should harmonize with responsiveness and flexibility of accompaniment. Due to diverse and annually renewed repertoire of Helikon-Opera the orchestra successively plays the compositions of different epochs and genres, mastering them in recordingly short time. The troupe often gives symphonic concerts abroad. 

Many outstanding conductors collaborated with the orchestra of Helikon, among them are Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Mstislav Rostropovich, Sergey Stadler, Evgeny Brazhnik, Julian Gallant, Richard Bradshow, Robert Alagna, Jose Cura, Dominique Rouits, Antonello Allemandi, Teodor Currentzis.

Since 2002 the orchestra has been directed by Vladimir Ponkin, People’s Artist of Russia, and twice winner of “The Golden Mask” National Theatre Award.
