19:00 Joseph Haydn. The Creation
The performance within the Framework of the XV Chekhov International Theatre Festival Programme by Moscow State Academic Chamber Choir and the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia “Evgeny Svetlanov”. La Création is an unusual oratorio. One of the authorities on Haydn’s work described it as “a picturesque illustrated book for adults and children”. Instead of the traditional heroic and epic pathos, its 34 vivid musical movements are pervaded with joy, astonishment and admiration for the world, and gratitude to God for the miracle which He created. La Fura’s production is an oratorio of the twenty-first century, the age of high technology and immense multimedia opportunities. A nine-meter-high crane, thirty-six enormous helium balloons and an aquarium of 1,000 litres – we are able to touch all this. Everything else is light, which breathes life into the stage and auditorium space. The founders and performers of the celebrated “La Fura dels Baus” company have long decided that miracles should be created with our own hands. For over forty years this fascinating theatre has never failed to amaze and captivate the public with its fantastic grand-scale shows. Their huge puppets, guided by cranes, were seen strolling along the streets and squares of world capitals, notably during the opening ceremony of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. It was during these open-air performances that La Fura’s true spirit and unique style took shape. Thus, literary and musical masterpieces are transformed into spectacular pageants, which resemble your dreams and fantasies.

19:00 Vadim Eilenkrig and Eilenkrig Crew
Vadim Eilenkrig will present his new album Newborn. Eilenkrig is Russian number 1 jazz trumpeter, a popular TV host and a famous powerlifter! A graduate of Maymonides State Academy in Moscow, for ten years Vadim was the lead trumpet of one of the best world’s jazz orchestras - Igor Butman’s Big Band. His first solo album, "The Shadow of Your Smile," recorded with ex-Brecker Brothers members and produced in 2009 by Igor Butman, became one of the country’s best selling albums. The album became a springboard for Vadim’s solo career. He launched a number of projects such as duets with outstanding pianists Anton Baronin and Daniel Kramer, a show with a TV and radio host and singer Timur Rodriguez, and the Vadim Eilenkrig Quintet. Vadim frequently tours Europe with solo concerts, and takes part in various musical festivals in Munich, Dusseldorf, Riga and Tallinn. In March 2016 Vadim performed at Sing Jazz festival in Signapore on the same stage with Candy Dulfer and Incognito. A few years ago a senior Russian business newspaper called Vadim «the Russian Chris Botti». However, Vadim has developed his unique, original style, inimitable sound and manner, and now, no doubt, he is one of the most recognizable and sought after Russian jazz musicians.
