Otello

"Otello" - nicknamed the drama of love, illustrates through music and scenic portrayal a conglomerate of states, emotions, and traits inherent to human nature and attributed to Shakespearean characters: love, honor, faith, jealousy, revenge, success, hatred, power. The opera is set in the late 1400s in a small town on the coast of the island of Cyprus and evokes the drama of love between the Moor Otello and the beautiful Desdemona. The perfidious attempt of Iago to separate the two and to remove Otello, the governor of Cyprus, from power in order to take his place, ends in a tragedy that led to the creation of one of the most beautiful and renowned operas, a true masterpiece by the composer Giuseppe Verdi. see more

ALEKO

"And everywhere fatal passions and there is no defense from fate" - the truth of Rachmaninoff's opera can perhaps be summed up in a single brilliant Pushkinian line. A bright, stirring plot, where everything is present: love and betrayal, jealousy and revenge. This opera is about human nature, its fate, and whether happiness is possible on earth. Will the main character, Aleko, be able to live peacefully and carefree in a beautiful world - or are the passions living within him capable of destroying any idyll? Where are the boundaries of freedom and how subject is it to humans? According to the opera's plot, the young hero Aleko flees from the city and finds himself in a wandering Gypsy camp. He becomes the husband of the young Gypsy girl Zemfira, who soon betrays him. Aleko cannot withstand the test of such Gypsy freedom... see more

Madama Butterfly

Performance presented by the production company SENBLA (Great Britain), in collaboration with the National Opera and Ballet Theater "Maria Bieșu". Madam Butterfly by G. Puccini is one of the most famous opera in the world, the story of which presents to the public the consequences of a boundless devotion. The love between young Japanese Chio-Chio-San and Pinkerton, an officer in the US Navy, has a tragic outcome. The work impresses the audience both by the beauty and drama of the music, and by the subject. The difference in mentality can create major errors and conflicts when the fundamental aspects of life - love, loyalty, friendship - are not taken seriously. Chio-Chio-San's character embodies the dreams, hopes and disappointments of abandoned women, with d broken destinies by suffering and disappointment, which makes this opera still relevant today. see more

Don Quijote

Don Quixote de la Mancha is a literary work by the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. The first part appeared in 1605 under the name of El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de La Mancha and enjoyed great success from the public, being a masterpiece of Spanish and universal literature. The second part appeared in 1615 under the name of El ingenioso caballero don Quijote de La Mancha. The novel is now one of the most translated works in the world. The pattern in El licenciado Vidriera is repeated, so that Don Quixote, although considered crazy by others, turns out to be closer to the truth than people considered "normal", due to the nobility of his thinking and actions. Alonso Quijano, a poor nobleman approaching the age of 50, lives with his niece in an unknown part of La Mancha. A passionate reader of chivalrous novels, Don Quixote comes to consider himself a "wandering knight" so he sets off on horseback on his mule, Rocinante, armed with cardboard weapons. Like the hero in the adventure novels he read, Amadis de Gaula, he chooses a young lady to whom he will dedicate his victories in battle: Dulcinea del Toboso, a peasant from a neighboring land, whose real name is Aldonza Lorenzo, but which in reality was neither noble nor beautiful… see more
