On the Day of the Builder the artistic Director of “Helikon-Opera” presented a serious award


On Friday, congratulating the Moscow builders with their professional holiday, Sergey Sobyanin presented the award and artistic Director of “Helikon-Opera” Dmitry Bertman in the nomination “the best project implemented cultural and educational purposes”. We first decided to congratulate Mr. Bertman, since that was a logical point in the reconstruction of “Helikon-Opera” he was for many years, sometimes even thinking throw it all and accept the invitation from the Western theatres…

— Yes, I told Sobyanin that the day of the Builder also became my professional holiday, and for many builders the Day of the theatre also became his. And as in the theatre, the builders always have your Director, choir, soloists, and is above all, artistic Director — the mayor of Moscow. You see, when Sergei Sobyanin was appointed mayor, he had a great chance to make a populist campaign to undo all the reconstruction project, and he would earned a lot of points. But no, he showed sensitivity, reliability, loyalty, and brought this long-running story that everyone is tired before the final.

— And, to this stunning.

— I said that Sobyanin will be grateful for this act before the end of life. As for the awards, she was nominated by two of the jury — professional, as well as from anyone who was voting for the “active citizen”. There were many competitors, but we won, for which thank you all.

…Season in “Helikon-Opera” opens August 25 at the recent premiere of “Sadko” (large-scale performance involving all the machinery of the theatre; later will begin touring in Thailand (“a masked Ball” and “Carmen”); still later, a tour in Estonia (lucky for “the Tsar’s bride”). And that is just great, as exchange tours here for the first time in the post-Soviet era will come to the theatre “Estonia” national Opera…
