Male-voice choir plus Lery
A pleasant surprise in the tour will be the appearance of the youngest member of the Alexandrov Ensemble. Valeria “Lery” Kurnushkina has been appearing as a soloist with the ensemble since last year and is making her first appearance before a Czech or Slovak audience. Her performances in Russia have met with enthusiastic ovation, so come and hear her impressive singing for yourselves.
Bára Basiková will join the tour
Making a special guest appearance with the ensemble is Bára Basiková, who is training hard for the tour, and we know what songs she will sing with the group. One of them will be a grand aria from a world-famous musical by Andre Lloyd Webber! – Which one? – Come and see! Of course, the concert will not be without Basiková’s operatic hit “Veni Domine”. Basiková will appear with the Alexandrov Ensemble in all concerts in the Czech Republic, and in the first half of the Slovak tour. “It’s a truly unique group, and working with them will be a new and interesting experience for me,” says Basiková.
More than two dozen concerts
The Alexancrov Ensemble is of course bringing its excellent soloist Vadim Ananev, known as The Kalinka Master, who had a solo concert in Prague in May 2011. Ananev was given a standing ovation by a sold-out Prague Congress Centre audience. His legendary Kalinka will of course be a highlight of this tour too. The ensemble comes to the Czech Republic on its biggest tour so far. The complete ensemble and all soloists will give a total of 17 concerts in 13 towns before moving on to give a further 11 concerts in Slovakia.
Something for everyone
The ensemble’s musical repertoire has long since extended beyond Russian folk songs (Kaťuša, Kalinka and Smugljanka) which everyone knows very well, and reaches into all musical genres, from classics to jazz, rock and modern music. For the current tour the ensemble has prepared a programme which combines the popular classics with the new songs in their repertoire. Of course, we can also look forward to impressive dance performances with their unique choreography.
