All of us definitely know why at the beginning of February there will not bloom tulips in Amsterdam but there will be an endless field of blood-red poppies! Yes, it is the European premiere of ‘Prince Igor’ at the Dutch National Opera that will take place in only three days! Today there is a general rehearsal and on Tuesday Ildar Abdrazakov performs the role of Igor Svyatoslavich in the high-profile production directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov (the world premiere took place at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 2014). We are looking forward to it so much!
