The glory of the unsurpassed master of English art of the era William Hogarth’s enlightenment was brought by the series of engravings “The Rake’s Progress” published in 1735 – the story of the naive provincial Tom Rakewell, driven by the temptations of London’s social life to scrip, prison and Bedlam. In 1947, Igor Stravinsky saw Hogarth’s engravings at an exhibition in Chicago, and four years later, the premiere of the opera of the same name took place at the La Fenice theater in Venice: written on a libretto by the great English poet W. Hugh Auden, “The Rake’s Progress” draws a line under the neoclassical period of the composer’s work, lasting for three decades. With this performance, Andrei Prikotenko, the chief director of the Novosibirsk Red Torch Theater and one of the leading directors of the Russian dramatic stage, makes his debut on the opera stage. He is working on “The Rake’s Progress” in a duet with St. Petersburg conductor Fyodor Lednev – two years after the premiere of the sensational performance of Bela Bartok’s opera “The Castle of Duke Bluebeard,” the main Russian specialist in the interpretation of music of the 20th-21st centuries returns to the Perm Opera.
