In late June, visitors to the Mariinsky Theatre will have two opportunities to hear Plácido Domingo – and another to see him making his conducting debut with the Mariinsky Theatre's production of Samson et Dalila. A long-standing friend of Valery Gergiev and of the Mariinsky Theatre, maestro Domingo has frequently participated in the Stars of the White Nights festival both as a singer and as a conductor
It is with regret that we announce that due to illness Ferruccio Furlanetto will be unable to appear in the operas Don Quichotte and Eugene Onegin.
The title role in the performance of Jules Massenet's Don Quichotte on 22 June at the historic Mariinsky Theatre will be performed by Yuri Vorobiev, and his faithful sword-bearer will be Andrei Serov. The role of the object of Don Quichotte's love, the fair Dulcinée, will be sung by Yulia Matochkina
The opera playbill of the festival programme has seen the addition of Eugene Onegin featuring Ferruccio Furlanetto as Gremin, Rossini's rarely-performed opera Il viaggio a Reims and a performance of the new production of The Maid of Orleans, which will bring the 2021 Stars of the White Nights festival to a close
