ORCHESTRE DU THÉÂTRE MARIINSKY - sold out
Valery Gergiev, conductor

Children probably dream of listening to their idol in a concert hall, their parents of encountering one of the most famous conductors of all times. The opening event of the 74th Septembre Musical is sure to delight a wide audience by bringing Henri Dès and Valery Gergiev together on stage for a concert at the Stravinski Auditorium. These two famous artists will share Peter and the Wolf, Sergei Prokofiev's beautiful symphonic fairy tale, with the children and their parents. Welcome to the Russian countryside, where each of the story's characters and animals introduces a new instrument, played by a musician of the legendary Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra. A lavish opening to this year's Russian festival programme, and which will allow Henri Dès' young fans to discover that their favourite singer is also a great storyteller.
