Artists of the Bolshoi theatre’s Young Artists Opera Program are coming to the Israeli Opera. It’s your chance to get to know them, tomorrow they will be famous.
The Bolshoi Theatre of Russia has always been, and will remain, one of the main symbols of our state and its culture. It is Russia’s main national theatre, a bearer of the traditions of Russian music culture and a centre of world music culture, the spearhead of the development of the country’s performing arts.
To the foreign spectators the Bolshoi offers a wide spectrum of the Russian classical legacy and the Bolshoi’s foreign fans come away from these performances imbued with new impressions of the development of the performing arts in Russia.
The Theatre tries to ensure continuity between generations by promoting the artistic development of young people with talent. Founded in 2009, the program seeks to foster new generations of artistic talent and to prepare young Russian artists for international careers. For several years, selected singers and pianists study a range of disciplines, attending master-classes with world-renowned artists, coaches and directors, mastering the art of music, acting, and foreign languages.
At different times, artists and graduates of the program became winners and laureates of the largest international opera competitions: BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2019 (A. Kimach), Placido Domingo’s Operalia (K. Shushakov, N. Karyazina, K. Mkhitaryan, B. Volkov, O. Kulchinska, A. Yakovlev), the International Tchaikovsky Competition (M. Barakova, M. Motolygina), Francisco Viñas (O. Kulchinska), Paris Opera Competition (B. Volkov, V. Gimadieva, I. Kutyukhin), Queen Elisabeth Competition (K. Shushakov), Queen Sonja International Music Competition (U. Aleksyuk, K. Mkhitaryan, A. Roslavets), Neue Stimmen Competition in Germany (P. Kolgatin, O. Tsybulko, K. Mkhitaryan, Y. Mazurova) and others.
During this time, students also perform at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Berliner Staatsoper and Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opera de Paris, Wiener Staatsoper and others. Many graduates of this program have become members or guest artists of the Bolshoi Theatre.
The artistic director of the Bolshoi Young Artists Opera Program is Dmitry Vdovin.
