On Thursday, March 18 th (6+), the spectators will be able to enjoy the performance of the State Symphony Capella of Russia. This is a unique group comprising over 200 artists. It combines an orchestra, choir and solo vocalists. The value of this creative association is that, while existing in an organic unity, each artist of the Capella retains creative independence. The State Symphony Capella was established in 1991 by the merger of the State Symphony Orchestra of the Ministry of Culture of the USSR under the direction of Gennady Rozhdestvensky and the State Chamber Choir of the USSR under the direction of Valery Polyansky (People's Artist of Russia, 1996). The latter has since been the art director of the united collective. The Cappella has successfully performed in the United States, England, Germany, the Netherlands and Asia, moreover it regularly performs at the Moscow Philharmonic, the Moscow Conservatory, and the Moscow International House of Music. Since 2009, the Chapel has been hosting the "September Evenings" festival in Tarusa, Russia.
On Thursday evening the audience will be able to listen to overtures, arias and choirs of their most famous operas by Giuseppe Verdi "La Traviata", "Aida", " The troubadour", "Rigoletto", "Othello", "Falstaff", "Nabucco", "A Masked Ball", " Luisa Miller ". Verdi's oeuvre is rightfully one of the greatest achievements of the world opera art and is the culmination of Italian opera's development of the 19 th century. The Capella has devoted several seasons to Verdi's artistic endeavour, regularly enjoying success with the public.
"Stay Home with Russian Seasons is a wonderful project that gives people the opportunity to listen to the best classical music concerts from anywhere in the world," said Olga Zhukova , General Director of Zaryadye Concert Hall.
