It is a play-memory about the famous, but now almost forgotten, opera singer – Georg Ots in the original interpretation Alexander Belozub the Director and Dmytro Sharaburin the soloist of the National Operetta, author of the text.
Georg Ots had a fascinating lyric baritone and easily performed both popular hits and sophisticated opera arias. Role of Mr.X in the film adaption of “The Princess of the Circus” operetta by Imre Kalman made him the idol of millions and live legend. In the 50’s and 70’s of the last century, his plates were in almost every family.
“When we put an old vinyl record on, through the noise and crackle, the voices of great people from the faraway past come to us. On the stage of the operetta theatre, we are going to recreate this unique retro atmosphere, bringing Georg Ots back to the present and showing the unknown scenes from his life”- says Alexander Belozub.
Ots had in his repertoire parties of the best operettas which are staging in the theaters all over the world including the National Operetta of Ukraine – “Gypsy Baron” by J. Strauss, “The Merry Widow” by F. Legar, “Countess Maritsa” by I. Kalman, ” Kiss me, Kat! ”K. Porter.
“This is a performance-restoration, a tribute to the memory of the outstanding singer, so his most famous arias, operettas and songs will be performed by the talented vocalist Dmytro Sharaburin” – concludes the director
