Tamara Sinyavskaya: "Vincenzo de Viva dropped his jaw when he heard Magomayev: 'Veramente Italiano!'"
On October, 20-21 Moscow will host the Muslim Magomayev international vocalist contest, dedicated to the 70th years since the birth of the legendary singer. The contest will be held in two rounds – opera and variety performance. 207 performers from 18 countries have already applied to participate in this event. However, according to Dmitry Bertman, art director of the Helikon Opera musical theatre, after careful selection, there are only 10 states left: Germany, USA, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Iran, Uzbekistan, and, of course, Azerbaijan among them.
