Minister of Culture Amina Shafikova reported the 2020 year results at a briefing session in the Government of Bashkortostan. Summing them up, the Head of the Republic especially reminded about the performance of the Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater on the historical stage of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. In March 2020, the opera "Attila" by G. Verdi staged by Ildar Abdrazakov was shown there.
"Our Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater has not shone on the big stage of the Bolshoi Theater for half a century, and it did happen in 2020. It was nice and great! We must make it a tradition that every spring, Muscovites - our fellow countrymen who live in Moscow, and the Moscow public, in general, can enjoy the Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater performances. This involves constant preparations to match the level of the Bolshoi Theater," Radiy Khabirov said.
The Head of the Republic inquired about new performances, to which the minister replied that the theater had created three new performances.
"Cultural institutions will represent the Republic of Bashkortostan at the federal and international levels," the minister clarified. "There is an agreement on the Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater's performance at the Mariinsky Theater and the Bolshoi Theater of Russia in 2021.
The minister also announced the postponement of the National Symphony Orchestra's concert at the Berlin Philharmonic Society to September 2021. On January 30, the orchestra will perform in Moscow at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall.
