On 7 April soprano Marina Likhosherst invites the spectators to her recital with an intriguing name, “Love, Infidelity, Perfidy and Passion”.

 25 мая оперой "Кармен" дирижирует испанский маэстро Даниэль Монтане.

Everyone who comes to the Chamber Hall on 5 February will enjoy a unique programme.


This is guaranteed by the author of the concert “Dmitri Shostakovich. The Music of the Soviet Country”, pianist, soloist of the Belarusian State Philharmonic, artistic director of the “Musical Salon” Tatyana Starchenko.

‘Dmitri Shostakovich passed away in 1975, but his amazing music is still modern. Naturally, as any genius, the composer was ahead of his epoch. Indeed, his music language is not simple, but it’s such a pleasure to listen to his works or to perform them!’ Tatyana confesses. ‘The programme can be really called exclusive, because it was created specifically for this cast of singers.’

Dmitry Kapilov will begin the concert with ‘The Preface to My Complete Works’ by Shostakovich. One should not be afraid of this “boring” name, as the composer had a colossal sense of humour, and Dmitry, a bass of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus, reveals the comic aspect of Shostakovich perfectly well. Not every artist has this rare gift. But wait! Kapilov will also sing Five Art Songs to the texts from Crocodile Magazine! One day Shostakovich took a bet whether he would be able to compose music to the letters which were sent to the editorial office of the magazine. And the composer did! When Kapilov brilliantly sings the texts, the audience bursts into Homeric laughter. It is worth seeing and hearing. The melodious Shostakovich is different in Spanish songs which will disclose the beauty of Natalia Akinina’s voice. The second part of the programme includes the genius cycle “From Jewish Folk Poetry” which will be performed by Natalia Akinina, Tatyana Petrova and Yanosh Nelepa and can be heard only at our theatre. Indeed, they are very versatile performers who possess very different voices, but together they embody real harmony! 

On 21 April the lead male role in a performance of Un ballo in maschera will be performed by Mykhailo Malafi.


The Ukrainian tenor became a discovery at the 2nd Minsk International Christmas Singing Competition. The jury appreciated the singer’s skills: the decision to award him first prize was unanimous. His special prizes included direct entrance to the 2nd round of the International Singing Competition in Marmande from Philippe Mestres, President and Artistic Director of the music festival «Nuits Lyriques en Marmandais», the invitation from the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus to perform a lead role in its performance, and the audience prize which was awarded for the first time.

Mykhailo Malafii graduated from the Mykola Lysenko Lviv National Music Academy (class of the Honoured Art Worker of Ukraine, Professor Oleg Tsyhylyk) into the opera company of the Solomiya Krushelnytska Lviv National Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. His repertoire includes the roles of Alfredo in La traviata and Riccardo in Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi.

The 21 April performance will also feature the People’s Artist of Belarus Nina Sharubina as Amelia, Honoured Artist of the Republic of Belarus Vladimir Gromov as Renato, winners of an international competition Natalia Akinina as Ulrica and Anna Guryeva as Oscar. The performance will be conducted by the Honoured Art Worker of the Republic of Belarus Nikolai Koliadko. 



On 17 April the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus invites young spectators to meet Dunno and Vasilisa.


In accordance with a good tradition, the guests will meet the cheerful and inquisitive Dunno and Vasilisa the Wise in the foyer at 11:15. The fairy characters will tell the children about Dance Day, how it appeared and why it is so popular around the world, and also about dance styles; the children are welcome to solve numerous interesting riddles about this popular form of art and participate in amazing quizzes. Dunno and Vasilisa the Wise will tell the newcomers how they should behave at the theatre and why, for instance, they must not rustle candy wrappers or sit with a hat on in the house.

The young visitors will enjoy the meeting with the dancers of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus who will speak about the ABC of dance and show main dance pas. The most active participants of the masterclass will receive prizes and souvenirs.
