"TSARINA" by David Tukhmanov comes back to the repertoire of "Helikon-Opera"

Performances will be held from 2nd  to 7th of February, 2016 in the Great hall of the "Stravinsky".

"Tsarina" is a bright and entertaining show for a family viewing, based on the contemporary music and literary material. This opera which is about the fate of the greatest  Russian Empress Catherine the Great has been written by the composer of our time David Tukhmanov in collaboration with the librettists Yuri Riashentsev and Galina Polidi.

Artistic design of the production is striking: the majestic scenery, recreating the interiors of the Tsarskoye Selo Palace, dozens of mirrors, charming fire of the 700 candles, luxurious historical costumes. During the performance the history of the reign and love of Catherine will sweep in front of the audience.

The premiere of "Tsarina" took place on the 22th of July, 2009 on the stage of The Aleksandrinsky Theatre (Saint-Petersburg).
