Glinka : Ruslan & Lyudmila

The reopening show of the historical stage of the Bolshoi Theatre by Vladimir Jurowski and Dmitri Tcherniakov.

Ruslan and Lyudmila, the opera by Mikhail Glinka, has particular relation with the Bolshoi Theater. It held more than 700 representations throughout the history and nine different productions. It was an evidence that the fable of Mikhail Glinka (from a poem of Pushkin), symbol of the Russian opera, should open the season 2011-2012 of the majestic Moscow’s opera, after its long renovation.

This reopening inspired the director Dmitri Tcherniakov, who signed the stage direction of this new production. The new devices of the Bolshoi Theatre and its two giant screens are fully exploited in a spectacular staging. Tcherniakov transposes Glinka’s opera at the 21th century with contemporary ambitions because of the “modernity of the subject”, trying there to put forward “the deep feelings of the characters”, exposing the protagonists to very modern temptations: a “harem” for Ruslan, a Thai massage for Lyudmila…

Vladimir Jurowski conducts The Bolshoi Theater Orchestra and a magnificent distribution with among others Albina Shagimuratova, Mikhail Petrenko, Alexandrina Pendatchanska, Charles Workman and Elena Zaremba.

A production acclaimed for its musical quality and its staging !
