19:35, 1 February, 2014

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 1, ARMENPRESS: "Magic Flute" opera by the Austrian
composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will replenish the schedule of the
Opera and Ballet National Academic Theatre named after Al. Spendiaryan
until the end of the year. Swiss conductor, Deputy Musical Chief of
Lucerne opera and ballet theatre Michael Vande Berg will introduce the
opera to the Armenian audience.

Before creating stage clothes and decoration for the opera to be
staged, "Magic Flute" of two acts will be performed at the theatre by
a concert performance on February 2. The symphonic orchestra and choir
of the theatre, students of voice preserving vocal-choral professional
school and soloists of the theatre will participate in the evening.

"I am very impressed with the Armenian hospitality. I did not know
that such a thing can happen. Before arriving in Armenia I knew only
Aram Khachaturian, once I played one of his works. The musicians of
Opera Theatre Orchestra are very capable; they easily perceive the
remarks and learn fast. The influence of the Russian music school is
noticeable. Music by Mozart does not sound so frequently here. We plan
to introduce the opera to the Armenian audience this year," Michael
Vande Berg noted in a conversation with Armenpress.
