On 28 May, the VDNH Green Theatre will once again open its doors to music lovers. The new season promises to be filled with events and will last until September. Spectators will be able to enjoy the performances of their favourite artists and musicians, theatrical performances, stand-up shows with popular comedians and creative and poetry evenings.
This year, the Green Theatre will open with a unique two-day musical programme World Harp. It will be presented by Alexander Boldachev, a musician, composer, producer, laureate of international competitions and winner of Britain's Brilliant Prodigies and ProEuropa (Austria) awards.
On 28 May, the first day of the programme, Alexander Boldachev and the ensemble of soloists GAUDEO will perform in front of the audience with the concert Harp: String Theory. The event will also feature two special guests: the indie-pop band Pompeya and cellist Borislav Strulev. The programme will include works by Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and other iconic authors.
On the second day, 29 May, the Symphony Orchestra of the Russian Ministry of Defence will perform on the Green Theatre stage with the concert Harp: The Great Legacy under the direction of Fabio Mastrangelo. The concert for harp and orchestra will feature works by Sergei Prokofiev, Reinhold Glière, Albert Zabel and Alexander Mosolov.
As usual, the Green Theatre's musical programme will include performers of different genres: from neoclassicism to rock and roll and from jazz to electronics. The dates have already been set for more than thirty performances, with tickets for some of them already on sale. You can follow the programme and buy tickets at the Green Theatre website.
The VDNH Green Theatre is a legendary open-air venue, which is very popular with VDNH visitors. It has hosted such Russian and foreign artists as Leonid Utesov, Alla Pugacheva, Dmitry Hvorostovsky, Boris Grebenshchikov, Yuri Bashmet, Konstantin Khabensky, Diana Arbenina, Maxim Dunaevsky, Mikhail Boyarsky, Lyudmila Zykina, Iosif Kobzon, Steve Vai and Apocalyptica.
To facilitate social distancing measures, the theatre has arranged special seating with more space between visitors. As a result, the theatre will be at no more than 50% capacity. Guests are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing.
