A Return to the Classics

Myron Yusypovych feels that The Tsar's Bride is an opera, that adapts well to the abilities of our soloists: «The opera has several characters that are basses, several that are sopranos and several that are mezzo-sopranos. Everyone is involved in the production. Rimski-Korsakov was well adept at working with orchestras and singers. He was an expert in utilising the natural possiblities of the voice – all the arias are balanced, fully taking into account the registers and natural abilities of the voice.»
