The concerts will be streamed live from Astrakhan in Russian and will be rebroadcast with English subtitles later.

The international Festival OperaFirst. Astrakhan 2021 opens with the performance of the Astrakhan State Philharmonic chamber orchestra conducted by Maestro Mikhail Golikov (St. Petersburg). This evening’s star is the famous French opera diva Elizabeth Vidal.

The guests will plunge into the atmosphere of a bright and original opera and musical performance. In the two sections of the concert, guests will hear world premieres and travel through space and time: from East to West, from Classicism and Baroque to contemporary music.

Frangiz Alizadeh, who heads the Union of Composers of the Republic of Azerbaijan, will present a new orchestration of her work "Metamorphosis" for string orchestra, originally written for 12 cellos of the Berlin Philharmonic.

Another concert premiere that combines Eastern and Western notions of classical music is Arvo Pärt's famous composition "Für Aline" in a new arrangement for voice and chamber orchestra.

Don't miss the exquisite yet powerful start of "OperaFirst. Astrakhan 2021", a creative synthesis of Eastern and European musical culture.

The artistic director of the evening is Natalia Dolgikh.
