Dear friends!

This summer we invite all citizens and visitors to NOVAT, the citys cultural center, to see the best opera and ballet shows of our repertoire.

To mark the beginning of the summer break NOVAT has prepared a number of events specially designed for our younger audience. Chief Stage Director of the company Vyacheslav Starodubtsev will present a new educational operatic project on 4 and 5 June. Its entitled Pushkiniana, and its purpose is to introduce Russian classical art to our younger theatre goers. V. Pleshaks opera The Tale of the Dead Princess and the Seven Knights will premiere on the eve of the Pushkin Day. 8 June will be traditionally dedicated to the Novosibirsk state choreographic school graduation concert, where its students and graduates will showcase their achievements in a bright and vivid program. The youngest ensemble of the theatre, NOVATs childrens chorus under Margarita Mezentseva, will present its annual artistic report on 7 June. The young artists will perform well-known tunes from your favorite movies and cartoons.

Opera lovers will love our June playbill for the big names of the shows exquisitely staged by Vyacheslav Starodubtsev. 2 June is dedicated to an opera taste-off shaped as a light, life-asserting show of Donizettis Lelisir damore. 4 June a majestic fashion-opera Aida by Verdi. 6 June we invite all admirers of chamber music to a Russian romance night. All fans of classical music and singing are invited to come see the Russian Opera Day featuring the soloists of our opera company, the chorus and the orchestra.

This July will be a month of ballet. 15 and 16 July the Main Stage will host the second part of Shchedrins The Little Humpbacked Horse premiere shows.
