POLINA OSETINSKAYA

Season 2024 - 2025

On April 18, for the first time in its history, the National Theater will host a solo harpist. He is not just a virtuoso – the Frenchman Xavier de Maistre. He breathes new life, new colors, new repertoire, and new emotions, sometimes quite intense, into his remarkable instrument, providing the audience with a fresh musical experience...

HARP
XAVIER DE MAISTRE

“We are now living in unprecedented and uncertain times, not only for our species but for all species on this planet. And the root cause of this conundrum is because we have forgotten our connection to our home, our planet. We all inhabit it, we all take from it, and we all build on it, but we have forgotten to return our respect for it.”

“Orlinski is the real countertenor deal, one of the best I’ve heard on the operatic (or any other) stage: an exceptional legato, no loss of power in the lower reaches, attentive diction, superb histrionic flair. He has, in short, raised the bar decisively for what we can expect of this voice type in this repertory.”
