Strelka Opera (Concerts)

For the first time ever, Strelka will host an evening of classical music in its courtyard, treating the audience to musical pieces from Vivaldi and Handel, performed in the Baroque style by singers Dmitry Sinkovsky and Lilia Gaisina 











This open-air summer gala evening, featuring Baroque musical performances, will be the first event of its kind to be held on Strelka’s premises. Modern artists will perform the classical genre and will pay careful attention to historic details. The works of Vivaldi and Handel will be performed by Lilia Gaisina (soprano), a soloist of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre, and Dmitry Sinkovsky (countertenor, violin), artistic director of the La Voce Strumentale ensemble.

The evening program will feature Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, as well as an aria of Flavia and a duo of Silla and Mettela from George Handel’s opera Lucio Cornelio Silla.

Dmitry Sinkovsky is the recipient of the Bonborti award and winner of the Bach Competition in Leipzig. The La Voce Strumentale ensemble, created by Dmitry and his friends, explores musical practices of the 17th and 18th centuries. Traditional string instruments make the ensemble sound as close as possible to the classical music of the Baroque era. La Voce Strumentale performs at the best European venues, including the famous Lucerne Festival. In Moscow, they regularly perform at the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory.

Lilia Gaisina is a graduate of the Moscow State Conservatory, and a soloist of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre. She participated in early music festivals in Europe and performed at the opening ceremony of the contemporary art exhibition at the Royal Library in Copenhagen. Lilia Gaisina also took part in the Platform theatrical project of Kirill Serebrennikov.
