The fifteenth and last opera written by N. Rimsky-Korsakov, Golden Cockerel is based on a faux fairytale by a great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and set to a libretto by Vladimir Belsky. The piece is a cornerstone of the Russian opera heritage; it has enjoyed international success ever since it premiered in 1909, but it has not been seen in NYC in decades. This is the first-ever production in New York City to be performed in the original Russian.
New Opera NYC's production features distinguished bass of Bolshoi Theater
Mikhail Svetlov as King Dodon, one of his signature roles, and Russian soprano Julia Lima and Alexandra Batsios as Queen of Shemakha, and
Ksenia Berestovskaya, Michael Celentano, Bonnie Frauenthal, Dmitry Gishpling-Chernov, Daniel Kamalic, Isaiah Trofimenko, John Villemaire,and Kevin Wetzel. Performed in Russian with English supertitles.
