2017/2018 Chamber Hall the 5th Season
11 July * Wednesday * 7.00 pm
Viva l`opera concert featuring arias from operatic masterpieces performed by the leading opera singers of the Astana Opera House - Medet Chotabayev and Barseg Tumanyan – will take place in the Astana Opera Chamber Hall. The guest of the concert is the renowned opera singer Varduhi Khachatryan from Switzerland.
The name of Maria Callas has been a major influence in the creative destiny of mezzo-soprano Varduhi Khachatryan. As a winner of MARIA CALLAS GRAND PRIX in Athens, she performed at concerts dedicated to Maria Callas. After that, she gave several solo concerts in Europe (Antwerp, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Geneva) and, of course, in Erevan, which were also dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the great singer. These concerts were a great success, and then the idea to create a concert series “Viva, Callas!” came. By her creative work, Varduhi Khachatryan presents to the audience the art of bel canto.
The programme will feature works by Rossini, Bellini, Verdi, Puccini, Gounod, Cilea and other composers.
THE CONCERT WILL FEATURE:
Varduhi Khachatryan (mezzo-soprano, Switzerland)
Medet Chotabayev, Honoured Worker of Kazakhstan (tenor)
Barseg Tumanyan, People's Artist of Armenia (bass)
Yelena Sakhno (piano)
Running time: 1 hour 15 minutes
