The Moment

Valery Gergiev  / Apr 16, 2018
"Now NCPA is one of the most important institutions in the world. I know how difficult it is to do opera, concert, exhibitions, lectures, films, and festivals... It’s not just opera. It’s much bigger. And also, the public has changed completely. Many of the NCPA audience are very young. They are the future."This week, maestro Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra brought two brilliant concerts to the NCPA Concert Hall. On April 16th, Gergiev and the Orchestra presented a concert of an all-Mussorgsky programme. With the participation of 15 singers and Chorus from the Marrinsky Theatre, a concert version of the composer's Khovanshchina was staged on the following day, marking its premiere in China.
