Great pages of the classical operetta: a musical homage to Yevgeniy Svetlanov

lassical operetta, rich in lyrical melodies and gorgeous orchestral pieces, has always attracted not only large audiences but inspired great soloists and conductors. The fantastic performances by Yevgeniy Svetlanov, who passed away in 2002, are well remembered. Yevgeniy was an extremely talented conductor and pianist who conducted at the Bolshoi Theatre and was later appointed principal conductor of the USSR State Symphony Orchestra, and principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. The main concert hall in the House of Music in Moscow is named after him.

Pieces by Johann Strauss, Franz Lehár and Imre Kálmán will be performed during this homage concert. Sergey Leyferkus, the leading baritone at the Mariinsky Theatre and the main guest soloist at the London Royal Opera and the New York Metropolitan Opera, will be performing together with Svetlana Skripkina, a young soloist from the Novaya Opera Theatre, Moscow.
