Tatar Opera and Ballet Theatre with great success performed on the scene of Bolshoi Theatre

April 18, a legendary dancer and choreographer Vladimir Vasilyev  turned  75 years old. In honor of  his  anniversary,  at the historic Bolshoi Theatre of Russia  the play «DONA NOBIS PACEM»   (production  by  M. Jalil  Tatar Academic State Opera and Ballet) choreography   by  V.V.Vasilev  took place. We remind that the  world premiere  was performed  on  April  14 and 15,  2015,  in Kazan.

For   showing  the play in Moscow,  a  troupe  of Tatar Opera and Ballet Theater  left  with  233 people – choir, ballet, orchestra, soloists and artistic leadership  of the theater.

Intentionally,   for a jubilee  evening in Moscow Vladimir    Victorovich    changed   a little  the  beginning of the performance. As soon as the curtain opened, the audience saw on the place  of the conductor   V. Vasiliev   himself, who  by a willed powerful gesture signaled the beginning of the action. After that, the conductor Vincent de Kort took his place and the play continued.

The hall was crowded (tickets for the show were sold  three months prior to the date),  the event was attended by numerous admirers of Vladimir Vasiliev, including  well-known artists,  Vladimir Zeldin, Irina Antonova, Alexander Shirvindt, Natalia Belokhvostikova,  Albina Shagimuratova, Nikolai Grishko, Tatyana Vedeneyeva and many others.

Before the beginning of the second act, when Vladimir Vasiliev took an honorary place  on the Tsar’s box,  an audience  welcomed a celebrant standing  with a thunderous applause. Congratulations to the hero of the day  were sent by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky. At the end of the show, Bishop Tikhon of Podolsk  came on the scene  and read  out  greetings from the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill.

At the end of the evening, Vladimir Vasiliev took the stage and gave a speech: “Perhaps it was the most precious gift I received for   75 years of  my  life. Thank you! I am grateful to all the participants of the Kazan theater and our production group. They were wonderful people, wonderful in every way, and they were people, imbued with a single idea – to do good, the good to the close. ”

The audience  did  not let  the  celebrant go,   production group  and artists from the scene, having presented  their 10-minute standing ovation.
