Friday 4 October
Den Nationale Scene
Stars from the Russian opera world come to the Bergen National Theatre for an evening of music from their motherland, a country that has made a distinguished and unique contribution to the international opera repertory.
Oxana Shilova is a soloist of the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg where she has shared the stage with Plácido Domingo and Valery Gergiev. She is a regular visitor to the Bergen National Opera, making her sparkling soprano voice familiar to many.
Also a BNO regular, Vladimir Dmitruk is a true Russian tenor and principal of the Stanislavsky Theatre in Moscow. They are joined by the BNO’s Head of Music Stephen Higgins for an evening of Russian opera favourites in the atmospheric surroundings of the National Theatre.
