January 14, at the main stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater (6 Ostrovsky Square), Sergei Stadler and the Petersburg Concert collective - the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra - will present a program dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the French composer Jacques Offenbach.
The most striking fragments from the operettas “Tales of Hoffmann”, “Orpheus in Hell”, “Robinson Crusoe”, “Blue Beard” and many others will be heard. At intermission, the public will be able to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of Parisian life from Offenbach’s time: chamber music of French composers will sound in the lobby of the theater.
The concert will be attended by leading soloists of the St. Petersburg Concert and musical theaters of St. Petersburg, the State Barynya Song and Dance Ensemble, the St. Petersburg Concert Choir (artistic director - Vladimir A. Begletsov)
Offenbach worked in the “easy” genre, where few people manage to earn the epithet “great”. Nevertheless, he is a great composer, the creator of the operetta and Parisian style in the musical theater, a man who made the whole of Europe dance the cancan to the uttermost.
However, his genius is not only that. His light operettas are deeper than they seem at first glance, the best of them have long outgrown their genre and live like a real comic opera.
