I am glad to have the chance to cooperate with the young talented and innovative orchestra of the Astana Ballet Theatre under the baton of the talented Italian conductor – maestro Giuseppe Acquaviva, with whom I have collaborated more than once,” Maria Mudryak says.

The audience will enjoy the versatility of opera art performed by Maria Mudryak at the concert.

“I decided to design a program that combines serious operatic works from operas by Verdi, Gounod, Puccini, as well as works from the genre of German Operetta and Spanish Zarzuela. An outstanding tenor from Almaty – Damir Saduakhasov – will take part in the concert, with whom we have been familiar for a long time but have not yet worked together. I am very grateful to the theatre for this opportunity! I am looking forward to meeting the audience!”, – concluded Maria.
