An original premiere is coming soon in the Vintage Music House!
A new theatrical program is dedicated to world's hits of the first half of the 20th century.
On August 19, at the Vintage Music House of VDNKh, music hall artists Valery Pirogov and George Sergeyev will present an original duet premiere "The history of popular music: fr om music hall to rock and roll" made in the format of a musical theatrical performance.
Spectators will enjoy a fascinating journey through time accompanied by world-famous songs of the 1900s - 1950s, which the performers will singin Russian and English.
Waltzes and foxtrots, tango and twist, satirical couplets and military songs - the program will feature almost all samples of popular music of the first half of the 20th century.
"Our premiere is arranged as an informal meeting of representatives of two cultures, said the author of the performance George Sergeev. "I will sing musical masterpieces of the Soviet Union, and Valery will be "responsible" for Western hits. This musical marathon has no purpose to show "who is the winner" - its task is to demonstrate musical values that always stood above politics, ideology and people's ambitions".
Also, the program will include funny stories that accompanied the birth of some hits, as well as atmospheric sketches from the Soviet and Western life of the last century.
After the performance the artists will hold free photo sessions with the guests and give autographs.
The premiere will start at 18.00. Duration: 1h 30 min.
The ticket price is 600 rubles (children under 16: 300 rubles).
