Opera "Aleko" by Sergei Rachmaninoff

Dear Friends!
October 31, Wednesday, in the Center of Culture of TSU will be performed Opera "Aleko" written by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Foreign students can get free tickets in 15th study room since Monday.

Aleko is one of the most beautiful Russian operas by Sergei Rachmaninoff. At the heart of the plot — poem "Gypsies" by A. Pushkin: jealous Aleko, аfter witnessing the betrayal, killed his beloved Zemfira and his opponent, who was in love with his girl. The mores of the proud Aleko oppose to mores of the free gypsies, but they do not take revenge on Aleko — they expelled him, left him alone with loneliness.
