For the holy day of Easter our theate presents the Easter organ concert. The program for the holiday concert was created by an expert (the organist and the author of the program Arseny Ushkov): it included both foreign and Russian works for organ and soloists associated with a religious theme. The brilliant compositions of Bach, Handel, Mozart (soloists Galina Mikhalina, Valeria Balandina, Ivan Shonin) were dedicated to the addressing of man to God. But the most memorable moments of the evening were the works of G. Sviridov on the lyrics by Alexander Blok "The blessed virgin in the city" (soloist Elvira Gurieva) and "Ave Maria" by Vladimir Vavilov-G. Caccini (soloist - Alevtina Smirnova). And in the final for the first time in the history of the organ play in the Opera and Ballet Theatre together with the organ sang the chorus (part from the opera by P. Mascagni "Cavalleria Rusticana") which was solemn and wonderful! Impressions and emotions are as light as today`s a holiday!
