Artistic director of the theater "St. Petersburg Opera", People's Artist of Russia Yuri Alexandrov is known as a master of the revival of operatic scores. This time, together with the artists of the theater, he is preparing a Christmas present for the citizens of St. Petersburg and guests of the city - the premiere of the opera "Cat in Boots" by Caesar Cui.
The charm of Charles Perrault's fairy tale, music, full of tenderness, wit and French elegance - such is the new production of the theater. It should be noted that Caesar Cui is the only composer of his generation who wrote for children. "The Cat in Boots" he created in 1912. A century later, the fabulous world of his opera revives on the stage of the Chamber Music Theater.
