Historic premiere at the Bolshoi
Tugan Sokhiev will conduct Peter Stein’s new production of Berlioz’s 'La Damnation de Faust', also starring two of Askonas Holt’s finest basses; Dmitry Belosselskiy and Alexander Vinogradov. Dmitry and Alexander will be singing the role of Mephistopheles on alternate nights at the Bolshoi Theatre this weekend.
The performances mark the first time the opera (and indeed any Berlioz opera) will be performed staged at the Bolshoi Theatre and it is showing on the 22, 23, 24 and 25 July.
Dmitry will perform on 22 and 24 July, and Alexander on 23 and 25 July. Find out more about the performance on the Bolshoi's website.
These performances come at the end of very successful seasons for Tugan, Dmitry and Alexander and we wish them all the best with this historic premiere!
