Days of Russian Culture held in Granada
The Russian Center of the University of Granada is holding a series of events organized jointly with the Art, Literary and Scientific Center of the city.
The project opened with a poetry evening dedicated to Mikhail Lermontov and Nikolai Gumilyov, poets who are brought together by their romantic vision of reality and tragic fate. At the meeting, poems of poets in Russian and Spanish were performed by teachers of the Russian Center and translator of Russian poetry into Spanish Joaquin Torquemada.
The next event was a visit by the delegation to the art center of the Russian Orthodox Church in Granada on the eve of Palm Sunday. The Spanish guests visited the church, got acquainted with the peculiarities of Orthodox worship and discussed the main similarities and differences between the two Christian churches.
On May 14, a ballet evening will take place, where students of the Granada ballet school will show excerpts from Russian ballet. The evening will continue with an archive recording of the one-act ballet with the participation of Maya Plisetskaya.
The series of meetings will end on June 11 with a concert of classical music, which will feature romances to music by Tchaikovsky, Glinka and Rachmaninov performed by pianist Anna Ivanova and soprano Maria Stihun, as well as works by Tchaikovsky, Bortnyansky and Borodin performed by the Artistic, Literary Choir and the Science Center of Granada.
