On September 23, 2021, as part of the 29th season of the International Music Festival ‘Palaces of St. Petersburg’, a concert dedicated to the great tenor Sergei Lemeshev will take place in the luxurious Bronze Hall of the Polovtsov Mansion.
An evening of music from the repertoire of one of the most phenomenally successful Russian performers of the 20th century will take place in the hall of the Polovtsov mansion, an architectural masterpiece of the genius Messmacher, which invariably makes a stunning impression on the audience.
The unique timbre of Sergei Lemeshev, the hypnotic effect of his charm evoked an extraordinary reaction from the audience, especially the female part. The halls where the tenor performed were literally electrolyzed by the energy of the singer and invariably crowded.
In the concert of the Palaces of St. Petersburg Festival, young talented tenors will pay tribute to the stellar forerunner. Artistic director of the festival ‘Palaces of St. Petersburg’ Maria Safaryants will talk about the magic of the great performer’s talent.
Three magnificent tenors will present a rich palette of Sergei Lemeshev’s repertoire. Each performer will show one of the facets of the great singer: sincere Russian songs, lyrical romances, opera arias from Lemeshev’s repertoire will be performed. Of course, the aria that lifted Lemeshev to the pinnacle of his glory will sound – the aria of Lensky.
Guests of the evening will be able to enjoy the unique interiors of the mansion. In the luxurious Oak Hall in the Renaissance style, you can find the mysterious coat of arms of the owner of the mansion and see unique bookcases and a fireplace, ordered from different regions of Italy; in the Fireplace Hall – enjoy the atmosphere of a knightly spirit. The hall in which the concert will take place is able to compete with the most eminent palace halls in the world. The bronze hall produces a stunning effect on visitors. Impressive interior, spectacular ceiling light, unique types of marble and precious woods in decoration – in such a luxurious atmosphere, concert guests will enjoy magnificent voices.
