An opera in one act – in concert

CitiOpera returns with an Australian premiere performance of a rarely performed Russian fairy-tale opera, Kashchey the Immortal.

Rimsky-Korsakov tells this timeless tale of love and redemption with moments of lush romanticism and cutting-edge harmonies foreshadowing the future works of Stravinsky and Prokofiev. CitiOpera’s concert performance of this important work stars an outstanding Australian cast of talent; 2016-17 Herald-Sun Aria finalist, Raphael Wong as ‘Ivan-Korolevich’, acclaimed Melbourne tenor and star of Victorian Opera, Michael Lapiña in the title role of ‘Kashchey’, Europe-based Australian soprano, Christiana Aloneftis as ‘Tsarevna’, outstanding Russian-Australian mezzo-soprano from Sydney, Viktoria Bolonina, and the incredible Melbourne-based Russian bass, Alex Pokryshevsky as ‘Burya Bogatyr’.

CitiOpera’s music director, Alan Cook leads CitiOpera’s orchestra and chorus in the first ever performance on Australian soil of this spellbinding work. Tickets here: bit.ly/kashchey
