Welcome to Astana

A famous Russian stage director will present at the EXPO a symphony consonant with the Cirque du Soleil show

15 May

The creative teams of the Kazakh National University of Arts are going to tell the guests of the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 a story of the little girl who dreams of becoming an outstanding violinist. University students will give concerts during the exhibition.

The concerts of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Kazakh National University of Arts will be held on the exhibition site on 10, 11, 12 June. In addition to the members of the group, the choir artists, dombra artists, opera singers and many others will take part. The educational institution is assisted in the organization of the performances by the producer center Para Group, which invited a creative team under the direction of the stage director Alexey Frandetti to Astana. The organizers intend to present the classics by means of the orchestra in a new visual reading.

"The main theme of the exhibition is alternative energy sources, and we thought about using alternative solutions for concerts in terms of direction, production, visual content. We cannot change music. Music was, is and will be. However we can add something new. For this purpose we invited a director, an art director and a lighting artist from Moscow, who have extensive experience", - Sabina Kuzenbayeva, creative director of the producer company Para Group, told EXPO2017.com.

Frandetti worked on such venues as Gogol Center, the Moscow Theater named after A.S. Pushkin, Krasnoyarsk theater of opera and ballet and so on. Last year he won the Golden Mask award in the nomination "The best work of a director in an operetta/musical". For the EXPO 2017, the renowned director will create performances for six groups at once: "Kamerata of Kazakhstan" State Orchestra, the KazNUI Symphony Orchestra, the N. Tlendiev "Otyrar Sazy" folklore ethnographic orchestra, the symphony orchestra of the Kurmangazy Conservatory, "Magic of Nomads" group and the Kazakh Academic Orchestra of folk instruments named after Kurmangazy.

"If you remember what the logo of the exhibition looks like, these are three petals divided in two. We came up with the name of each concert for the band: dream, strength, inspiration, etc. This is what every collective represents. The first to perform at the EXPO will be the KazNUI orchestra. Their collective will present the concept of a dream. The last thing I want is simply a symphony concert. My task is to make a symphony show close to the Cirque du Soleil show", - Alexey Frandetti said.

During the performances popular pieces of work of Kazakh and foreign composers will be performed.
