Mikhail Tatarnikov will conduct Antonin Rubinstein’s rarely performed Russian masterpiece, ‘The Demon’, in two concert performances at La Monnaie de Munt. Kostas Smoriginas and Veronika Dzhioeva will star in the leading roles The Demon and Tamara, while Christianne Stotijn and Elena Manistina are rounding up the cast in the roles of the Angel and the Nurse.
This will mark Veronika’s company debut at La Monnaie, while Kostas and Mikhail have collaborated at La Monnaie before in Rachmaninov’s ‘Aleko’. Elena is returning after almost a decade, where she sang in Prokofiev’s ‘The Fiery Angel’, and Christianne has performed regularly at La Monnaie, in roles such as Cornelia in ‘Giulio Cesare in Egitto’.
Performances take place on Thursday 21 and Sunday 24 January. Find out more on the La Monnaie de Munt website.
