Premiered on March 7th 2015

One of the most popular opera of Rossini, which captivates audience already for two centuries with inexhaustible wit, melodic generosity and virtuoso brilliance of vocal parts. The rapid dynamic of the stage action, the abundance of comic positions, the plot, replete with unexpected twists, seem to have been snatched from life itself.

Count Almaviva has lost his heart to the spunky Rosina, whose doddering guardian is determined to marry her himself. It’s Figaro to the rescue, as the resourceful barber conjures up wacky schemes and strategies to unite the young lovers.

********************************************************************************************

Opera in two acts

Performance of the St. Petersburg Chamber Opera

Premiered on February 3rd, 2006

Running time: 2.50 h

“Madam Butterfly” is one of opera’s most enduring tales of unrequited love. Puccini’s poignant score follows the tragic tale of Cio San, a young Japanese girl who falls in love with American naval officer Pinkerton, with devastating consequences.

The great Italian composer Giacomo Puccini wrote the opera at the end of 1903. The opera premiered on February 17, 1904, in Milan Scala and then began the triumphal journey of this opera on the Italian and world stages. “Madama Butterfly” has been on the playbill of the world opera houses for more than a hundred years.

The production of the opera at St. Peterburg Chamber Opera is built masterfully and designed thoroughly. Instead of external effects and pseudo-Oriental exoticism, it strikes the audience with its bright passion, personal touch, and psychological depth.
