Opera La Scala di Seta presented at Astana Opera
Classical opera productions under the Piccolo Chamber Theatre project will take place at the Astana Opera House. The first one will be the premiere of Rossini’s opera La Scala di Seta.
The performance will be held with the support from the Ministry of Culture and Sport of the Republic of Kazakhstan within the framework of the Year of Youth on April 6 and 7.
“The opera will take listeners to the 18th century. Giulia will secretly marry her beloved Dorvil. In order to get to his wife, he uses a silken ladder, which she lowers down to him from her window. Giulia’s guardian, old Dormont, unaware of her marriage, will try to marry her off to Blansac, Dorvil’s womanizer friend. Performers and production team talk about what happens,” the opera house’s press office informs.
