20:00 Cypress Hill (USA)
One of the biggest hip-hop groups of the early '90s, powered by lazily menacing lyrics and the slow, stoned production of DJ Muggs. Cypress Hill were notable for being the first Latino hip-hop superstars, but they became notorious for their endorsement of marijuana, which actually wasn't a trivial thing. Not only did the group campaign for its legalization, but their slow, rolling bass-and-drum loops pioneered a new, stoned funk that became extraordinary influential in '90s hip-hop -- it could be heard in everything from Dr. Dre's G-funk to the chilly layers of English trip-hop. Cypress Hill was the first Latino American hip hop recording group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums, selling over 20 million albums worldwide. They are considered to be among the main progenitors of West Coast rap and hip hop in the early 1990s, being critically acclaimed for their first four albums.

19:00 Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
Oratorio by George Frideric Handel. 200 min (with intermission). Libretto by Benedetto Pamphili. Music Director and Conductor: Philipp Chizhevsky. Stage Director: Konstantin Bogomolov. Sung in Italian. "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" occupies a special place among Handelís oratorios. It is the first, and already perfect in all details, oratorio of the 22-year-old composer. And it will become the last one. Half a century later, in 1757, blind Handel dictated to his disciple John Christopher Smith a new version of this oratorio renamed The Triumph of Time and Truth, with participation of choir and addition of fragments from some of his early works. The libretto of "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" was written by Cardinal Benedetto Pamphili, a theologian, philosopher and poet, one of the Roman patrons of Handel. Beauty, Pleasure, Disillusion and Time are personified in his text.
Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theater 
19:00 Lucrezia Borgia
Opera by Gaetano Donizetti, performed in concert form by the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra. Lucrezia Borgia is among the most challenging operas for the lead soprano in the composerís oeuvre. The work had its world premiere on Dec. 26, 1833 at La Scala and while it did well throughout the 19th century, it struggled to find an audience throughout the 20th century. There were, however, a great number of divas who championed the opera, most notably Leyla Gencer, Montserrat Caballé, Beverly Sills, Dame Joan Sutherland, and Edita Gruberová. In Gaetano Donizettiís opera, Lucrezia Borgia (libretto by Felice Romani, based on Victor Hugoís play of the same name), a notorious femme fatale renowned for her ruthless pursuit of power reveals poignant vulnerability when she comes face to face with her long-lost son, Gennaro.
