NOSFERATU

THE TRIUMPH OF NOSFERATU IN
PERM TCHAIKOVSKY BALLET THEATRE AND OPERA

The opera Nosferatu by Dmitri Kourliandski, directed by Theodoros Terzopoulos and conducted by Teodor Kourentzis, was the huge triumph of Perm Opera, where it was presented on June 13 and 20, 2014. The world premiere of Nosferatu on June 13 was received with standing ovation, since the audience was rhythmically applauding for 12 minutes.  While the performance on June 20 was sold out days ago (tickets were even sold in the black market).
Not only the audience, but also the Russian and international press praised the virtues of Nosferatu:
Nosferatu is a production worthy of Diaghilev’s hometown (besides, it is the central event of Diaghilev Festival) and a performance that could refresh the program of many atop European festivals- from Ruhr Trienalle to Wiener Festwochen”.
Gazeta Kommersant, 19/6/2014
“It may be the most significant production of Perm Opera. It is even more magnificent than the Indian Queen directed by Peter Sellars”.
Novy Kompanion
“In the 1920s and 1930s, the Perm Theattre of Opera and Ballet was renowned as an experimental theatre for the soviet avant-garde. This month has seen a return to those roots, with the world premiere of Nosferatu”. 
Susan Moore, Financial Times, 20/6/2014
