Lasting impression will be truly made
A renewed performance of Eternal Song to be staged at the Republican Theatre of Belarusian Drama
The musical performance, premiered in 2002, still enjoys the audience’s attention. For more than ten years the performance has received many awards at various international festivals, including the Grand Prix at the 9th International Voices of History Theatre Festival in Russian Vologda and the Grand Prix at the 7th Theatre Festival of the International Black Sea Club Homo Ludens.
The renewed version of the contemporary Belarusian folk opera touches the audience with its power and strength. Yanka Kupala’s famous work, staged by director Sergey Kovalchik, is watched by the spectators with bated breath and it’s hard to find anyone who remains untouched by the performance.
The poem Eternal Song, by classical Belarusian writer Yanka Kupala, was written in 1908. Even now it is acutely relevant as a work that forces us to seek answers to the eternal questions about the value of life and the role of destiny. The performance involves almost the whole theatrical company. The major role of Muzhik (Man) is played by the notable Belarusian artist Igor Sigov, along with another famous national artist Tatiana Markhel.
