Opera by Kirill Molchanov


Boris Vasiliev's poignant story "And the dawns are quiet here" about the feat of anti-aircraft gunners became the plot of K. Molchanov's last opera.

Kirill Vladimirovich Molchanov's songs "There are so many single guys, "And I love a married man...", "Here the soldiers are walking on the scorched steppe...", "There is no hiding from people in the village..." are loved by different generations of viewers of our
countries, they are sung from the stage, and during the feast, and around the campfire with a guitar! The composer has a wonderful sense of the specifics of musical theater, but at the same time, without changing the song nature of his gift, he widely uses the techniques of neighboring arts. He resorts to cinematic
"surges", to frames from the past of his heroines interrupting the linear narrative, to frames-memories, to montage dramaturgy. The musical language of the opera, equipped with quotations, is just as peculiar – there is a "household" song, a stage, and Baroque music. As a symbol of peaceful
in the crystal timbre of celeste, Dunaevsky's "Lullaby" sounds, and then Handel's aria. The film adaptation of the story became one of the most iconic paintings of the generation of the 1970s, and Eugene's romance to the incredible poems of Konstantin Simonov "Wait for me and I'll come back" became a symbol not only of victory over fascism, but also the spiritual basis of the unity of our people.
The play combines the principles of cinema and theater, relying on the precepts of the author, the main theme of the play becomes love! Love allows a person to see beauty. After all, a person who has known the beauty of life is no longer capable of destroying it. Answer the question - What is
Homeland? What is Life? - it is possible only after you understand exactly What LOVE is!
The selfless feat of the girls and millions of other heroes who gave their lives for the Motherland, for victory in a tough battle with fascism should forever remain in our hearts and in the memory of future generations.
