Fragments of operas by Russian and foreign composers will be performed during the concert. The overture to the opera Ruslan and Lyudmila by Mikhail Glinka will be performed by the Combined Orchestra of Moscow and Sevastopol, the aria of Basilio and the cavatina of Figaro from the opera The Barber of Seville by Gioacchino Rossini, the aria of Lensky from Eugene Onegin by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, and very many more. Both concerts will end with the collective performance of the Sevastopol anthem Legendary Sevastopol.
The festival stage is located in the museum-reserve Tauric Chersonese, on the ruins of an ancient Greek polis founded back in 420 BC. The city has survived to this day in excellent condition, so festival guests can enjoy magnificent singing in unusual and picturesque antique theatrical scenery.
