Season in Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater will finish with musical comedy premiere

Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater will host the musical comedy premiere “Your Move, Queen!” on June 28 and 29. This was reported to Bashinform News Agency in the theatre's press service. The author of the music is Alexander Zhurbin, a Soviet and Russian composer, author of the first Soviet rock opera, more than 10 musicals, and compositions for drama productions and films.

The plot is based on Eugene Scribe's play A Glass of Water, or Causes and Effects. “Can a person in power afford love?” - this is the slogan of the play.

England in the early 18th century. Political conflicts in the royal palace are intertwined with loved ones, and the fates of several countries are decided by three ladies whom a young officer carries away. Jealousy of one, the cunning of another, or sincere love of a third - which force will win in confronting feelings and ambitions?

The performance is created at the intersection of Operetta, vaudeville, and historical anecdote. Opera soloists will speak on the stage, the choir will become the personification of the courtiers, and the ballet will become the embodiment of love.

The production group of the musical comedy included both familiar to the Ufa audience and masters of theatrical art new to Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater. Conductor - Vladimir Meshkov, stage directors - Lyudmila Ismailova and Ilmar Almukhametov. Elena Vershinina, laureate of the national theater award "Musical Heart of the Theatre", repeatedly nominated for the Golden Mask, is working on the scenography. Costume designer - Ivan Skladchikov. Choreographer - Irina Filippova, lighting designer - Irina Vtornikova, choirmaster - Alexander Alekseev.
