The Capital’s Theatre Will Present the Premiere of a Musical Comedy on June 5-6
K. Kuanyshbayev State Academic Kazakh Music and Drama Theater will present the premiere of the musical comedy “Cabaret Star”, based on the world famous operetta of I. Kalman “Silva”, on June 5-6 at 19.00. The theater on this premiere covers the XXVIII theater season.
One of the best operettas of the famous Hungarian composer Imre Kalman, “The Riviera Girl” (“Silva”), is always on the repertoire of the world theaters since its premiere held in 1915 during the very height of the First World War. The love of a girl, the actress of the cabaret, Silva, who came out of the lower classes, and Edwin, the young aristocrat, serves as the basis in this musical performance. The atmosphere of the operetta is permeated with a cheerful festive spirit.
The situations in the operetta are partly conveyed by the authors of the operetta by the techniques of the plutonic novel. It turned out that not only Edwin’s beloved, but his mother also was a chansonet during her youth. Edwin’s father was forced to bless this marriage. Love and freedom, despite the different social statuses of the characters, win; the characters touch the audience with their nobility. The audience is madly in love with love intrigues involving bright characters, where there are human passions, and the couples in love sometimes swap their places by the will of fate.
Young actors of the theater with excellent vocal talents are involved in the performance: G. Zhussupova, Zh. Yerbolat, K. Bolat, A. Kurmasheva, A. Kapayev, K. Bugybai, Sh. Ordabayev, O. Zhakypbek, A. Nogerbek, A. Ibrayeva, S. Tokmangaliyeva, D. Alimov, S. Bairov, A. Sultan and others.
