The tickets sale for the opera with the participation of Placido Domingo within the framework of EXPO 2017 is suspended due to the huge demand. The Minister of Culture and Sports of Kazakhstan Arystanbek Mukhamediuly said this at a meeting in the government dedicated to the entertainment program of the world specialized exhibition in Astana, IA "DKNEWS.kz" reports.
"The final of one of the most prestigious international vocal competitions of opera singers "Operalia" headed by Plácido Domingo will take place in Astana. The most respected maestro Domingo will also perform in the opera "La Traviata" by Giuseppe Verdi. Alfred's role will be jointly performed by our young soloist Medet Chotabaev and Violetta's role by opera singer Marina Rebekka. It should be noted that due to the huge demand at this time, we temporarily suspended the sale of tickets. It's just a unbelieveable sold-out show", - Mukhamediuly said.
The minister added that some of the tickets were reserved for participants of various forums.
"Considering that various major summits and forums held at these dates, we have reserved a certain part of the tickets for the participants of these forums. In addition to the theater "La Scala" and Placido Domingo, we are working on additional performances for these dates", - concluded the head of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of Kazakhstan.
