Astana Opera’s principal dancer will perform in many countries this summer

NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM – The geography of tours of the main dancer of the Astana Opera, the honored worker of Kazakhstan Bakhtiyar Adamzhan is expanding every year. It is only this summer that her performances are eagerly awaited by audiences in a number of countries around the world. In June, eight gala concerts featuring our compatriot had already taken place in Milan. Now the dancer is preparing to amaze viewers in other cities of Italy, as well as in France and Australia, Kazinform learned from the press service of the Astana Opera.

Internationally renowned choreographers are actively seeking to include in their ballet programs the numbers performed by Kazakhstan’s number 1 dancer – Bakhtiyar Adamzhan. Connoisseurs of modern and classical art dream of attending his performances. For the main dancer, who enjoys great popularity not only in his country, but also abroad, this summer began with significant events.

Thus, from June 17 to 28, he brilliantly interpreted at the Roberto Bolle and Friends gala the ballets of the exceptional contemporary dancer at the Italian Teatro degli Arcimboldi in Milan. Along with the principal dancers of the San Francisco Ballet and the Mariinsky Theater, he performed excerpts from Ludwig Minkus’ Don Quixote and that of Adolphe Adam The Corsair.

“I met Roberto Bolle five years ago thanks to maestro Luigi Bonino. At the time, Luigi came to our opera to put on the ballet Notre Dame of Paris choreographed by Roland Petit and we were also preparing a gala concert at the same time. Maestro came into the rehearsal studio and videotaped our preparation. Later, he showed this video to Roberto Bolle and introduced me in absentia saying, “There is this ballet dancer in Kazakhstan who is to perform at your Roberto Bolle and Friends gala concerts. It will be a great discovery for everyone.” Later, Roberto Bolle contacted me via social media and sent me an invitation to play in his concert. This is how our acquaintance began,” Bakhtiyar Adamzhan said.

Since then, Roberto Bolle’s concerts have featured our compatriot. The artistic friendship between them grows stronger year after year. It should be noted that receiving an invitation to the gala concerts of Roberto Bolle is a confirmation of the high skill of the dancer.

“If you don’t prove yourself at his gala concert, don’t maintain the right level, he will stop the collaboration, because his programs are of the highest quality. Roberto respects his audience. I am very grateful to him for his responsiveness, his invitations and the opportunity to perform on the most prestigious stages in Italy,” said Bakhtiyar Adamzhan.

The tour of the principal of the Astana Opera in Italy does not stop there: on July 21 and 22, Bakhtiyar Adamzhan will perform the ballet Notre Dame of Paris with the Italian ballet company Teatro dell’Opera di Roma for two consecutive days. Here, the ballet star will cut a brilliant figure in the main part of Quasimodo in the splendid setting of the Baths of Caracalla.

This month, Spanish viewers are also waiting for Bakhtiyar Adamzhan. The dancer will perform at the STARS GALA, to be held at the Teatro Principal de Alicante. It should be noted that great professionals from all over the world meet each year in this gala concert. This year, the best dancers of the Mariinsky, Bolshoi, Mikhailovsky, Staatsballett Berlin, Wiener Staatsballett, Dutch National Ballet theaters, as well as other well-known companies perform on the same stage together with the main dancer of the Astana Opera. The dancers will provide an unforgettable experience to the Spanish public, who highly understand and appreciate the art of ballet. Here Bakhtiyar prepares to present Riccardo Drigo’s Pas de Deux The Talisman and the Pas de Deux from Diana and Actaeon from Cesare Pugni Emerald.

Bakhtiyar Adamzhan’s world tour will continue in August in Australia. As a reminder, Bakhtiyar demonstrated his impeccable technique during the International Ballet Gala, which took place in January-February in this country and amazed the audience of the Green Continent. Now, a few months later, the principal dancer of Astana Opera and his stage partner, Shugyla Adepkhan, will once again delight their Australian fans.

The Kazakh dancer is also expected in Cannes (France), where Bakhtiyar Adamzhan will perform from October 13 to 15.

Invitations, addressed to Bakhtiyar Adamzhan, to participate in ballet evenings and performances taking place in different parts of the world, once again prove that he is one of the best dancers in the world. This undoubtedly enhances the prestige of the Astana Opera and our whole country on the international scene.
