It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for me the Red Army Choir, Orchestra and Ballet in concert at Teatro Colloseo, Turin on November 6th 2016 is one of the most interesting and alluring musical events of the fall. Here in Turin we’ll have the opportunity of seeing perform the The MVD Ensemble, founded under the patronage of the Ministry of Internal Affairs back in 1939, one of the two groups who have the official right of calling themselves “The Red Army Choir”.
Their repertoire includes traditional Russian songs, sacred music, famous opera arias – “Nessun Dorma”, “O Fortuna” to name but a few -, even some of the most hype creations in pop music – for instance, their take on Pharell William’s “Happy” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” in 2014.
Their only other concert date here in Italy is November 7th, with a show at the LIME Theatre – Fiere di Reggio Emilia.
WHERE: Teatro Colosseo, Via Madama Cristina 71, Turin
WHEN: November 6th 2016
HOW MUCH: prices raging from €35,70 (Galleria B) to €64,30 (Poltronissima)
