The story of devoured Lovesickness women abandoned by their men for the war and become bait for those who prefer love - the war, the director of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia Igor Ushakov presented quite modern. Avoiding the radical modernization of the plot (not transferring, for example, the effect of a modern office or a five-star hotel), but referring to what is happening with some irony, he fills the fabric of the play many ingenious discoveries. Zone of special attention - the extras that you do not want to call so: after all, each participant - is a lively character, with his attitude. Coherence singing the chorus (Chorus director E. Gaifullina) "works" to the same and as a corps de ballet. Plastic figures are clearly aligned, staging organized under the laws of close choreographic compositions ...

"Le Comte Ory" - an unexpected premier Yekaterinburg Academic Opera. In the year of his own century the Urals Theater decided to strongly impress his fans. In an abstract and conditional scenographic space created by the main artist Lenkom Alexei Kondratiev, you can probably play any genre of opera: multi-level design and a lot of real props. But Irena Belousova costumes made as a stylish collection with a long-term historical prototype. Its main quality - wit. Yekaterinburg Do you have enough of their own forces to storm the dizzying heights of Rossini? I had, of course, win the support of foreign players. The orchestra strengthened invited for Accompaniment remote musician in the orchestra of the Bolshoi Theatre and sounds from Klinicheva diverse and stylistically accurate. Hellishly difficult title role sung from Moscow Dmitry Trunov (eccentric vocal stable) and Spaniard Miguel Angel Lobato (romantic, but raspelsya only to the final). Well in the party young page Hope Babintseva two different characters playing the sexy Irina Bozhenko and strict Natalia Mokeeva. Ensembles, the stumbling block sound, if not delicately, it is quite decent. I am glad choir, which in addition to singing, and plenty more gaming problems. Energetic, lively performance in Yekaterinburg badly marked 220 years of Rossini. Larisa Barykina, "Rossiyskaya Gazeta"
