A Celebration in Every Home
Astana Opera will present a festive concert, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It will be webcast on Tengri TV and on the opera house’s YouTube channel the day before the anniversary date – on August 29.
“We are happy to invite all Kazakhstanis to watch a wonderful concert, prepared by the soloists of our opera house. Unfortunately, during the quarantine, we do not have the opportunity to hold the festive event the way it used to be before. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the online program will bring a great mood to the audience. Certainly, Constitution Day is one of the main state holidays in Kazakhstan. We honor and respect the fundamental law of our country, which has cemented the foundations of statehood and life of our society. On this wonderful day, we wish the people of Kazakhstan harmony and stability. May happiness and well-being reign in every family, and the desire for new victories in the name of the prosperity of our Motherland will lead us to great success,” Azamat Zheltyrguzov, the Opera Company Supervisor of Astana Opera, Honoured Worker of Kazakhstan, said.
This evening, outstanding talented artists, including Zhanat Shybykbayev, Zhan Tapin, Meir Bainesh, Beimbet Tanarykov, Aizada Kaponova, Saltanat Muratbekova, Bibigul Zhanuzak, Zhamilya Jarkimbayeva, Madina Islamova, Yelena Ganzha, Ramzat Balakishiyev, Nazym Sagintai, Yerzhan Saipov, Galiya Baigazinova, Kurvanzhan Akhatov, Zhanar Akhmetova, Raushan Beskembirova, Irina Kurguzkina, “Dolce” ensemble and many others will present their art online.
The diverse program features Kazakh folk songs, patriotic and lyrical compositions about the Motherland. Many of these author’s melodies, which talk about the unity and solidarity of the Kazakhstani people, have long become national cultural assets.
“In this concert, I perform the folk song Ak Bakai. The preparation was a great pleasure, because we all missed the stage and creativity. Shortly before the concert itself, I had a rehearsal with the accompanist Raushan Beskembirova, after that there was a dress rehearsal and the most crucial moment – participation in our musical evening. I would like for our audience to enjoy the creative work of the Astana Opera singers, even if online. Yet still I am sure that the quarantine will end soon and we will meet again with admirers of our creative work in the new, eighth season,” Zhan Tapin, Principal Soloist of Astana Opera, Honoured Worker of Kazakhstan, noted.
The concert will begin at 18:00.
