For the first time on our stage, the legendary Neil Shicoff will sing the role of Canio in Pagliacci. The singer, who has enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership with the Mikhailovsky Theatre and is the recipient of a Golden Mask award for his performance as Eléazar in Jacques Halévy’s La Juive, will now showcase this equally remarkable work.
Andriy Zholdak’s production of the opera Eugene Onegin returns to the Mikhailovsky Theatre stage in May. The performance emerged victorious at last year’s Golden Mask Awards. The acclaimed European director’s debut operatic work was the winner in three categories, including Best Opera Production and Best Opera Director.
