The message reads, in part:
“The ancient Tauric Chersonese is once again warmly welcoming talented actors and guests from various countries and is presenting masterpieces of opera and choreography on its unique and venerable stage. It presents the public with the creative work of recognised stars and young performers.
I am confident that the current festival will be remembered for the brilliant performances of its participants, as well as for its friendly and inspired atmosphere. And, of course, the implementation of this unusual and truly beautiful project will help strengthen professional and personal, human contacts.”
The 5thChersonese International Opera and Ballet Festival will be held from July 28 through August 1 in the ancient town of Tauric Chersonese in Crimea.
