Calendar of premieres for March 2023


Alexander Raskatov’s 20th opera – Animal Farm – will be created at the Dutch National Opera on March 3rd, 2023. Based on George Orwell’s novel and adapted in Ian Burtons libretto, this powerful and committed work, dealing with a burning topic, will follow its way to the international scene at the Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro Massimo (Palermo), and at Finnish National Opera and Ballet (Helsinki). This craze highlights the piece’s appropriateness as well as its meaningful musical strength.
