Alexey Rybnikov finished work on the work, which was based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy, 10 years ago.

On the stage of the theater Et Cetera will present the premiere of an opera-drama Le prince andreAlexey Rybnikov. The performance will be shown on May 18 and 19.

The production is an unusual interpretation of the novel War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. In the center of the plot is the story of Prince Andrei Bolkonsky. In addition to the literary basis, the opera uses addresses from Emperor Alexander I, letters, diaries and memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as excerpts from Orthodox prayer books and texts of folk songs.

Alexey Rybnikov finished work on the work 10 years ago. Even then, fragments of the opera that appeared on the Internet aroused the interest of the audience. But in connection with the work of the composer in the cinema, the preparation of the performance was postponed.

Now Le Prince Andre is a larger and more spectacular production. It consists of two acts, each of which lasts 55 minutes. Modern technologies in the field of computer graphics have made it possible to bring to life a large number of author’s ideas, which would have been impossible a decade ago.

The roles are played by both opera singers and singing drama actors. Some of the artists involved in the play are known for their participation in the show “The Voice”. On stage, they speak, sing in different styles and recite. The symphony orchestra will be responsible for the musical accompaniment.
