Ukrainian Breakthrough

22-23 June at 19.00

40 years ago, this performance would have become a global phenomenon to mark the emergence of an innovative genre – folk opera. Its author Yevhen Stankovych, now a celebrated contemporary Ukrainian composer, combined traditional singing and ancient melodies with avant-garde symphonic music. The opera was commissioned by a French concert firm for the Veryovka Ukrainian National Academic Choir scheduled for October 1978. Unfortunately, it was never staged in Kyiv – top officials from Moscow banned the production. Luckily, the Lviv National Opera has renewed it and presents a stunning show with a contemporary approach to Ukraine’s fun-loving pagans to the freedom-fighting Cossacks.
