«This is my first visit to Kazakhstan, but I heard a lot about your beautiful country and the Astana Opera House. I look forward to meeting with the artists and the audience of Astana. I would like to note that it is never easy to have a high-quality performance. The opera is very complicated syncretic art and needs perfect conducting skills, experience and flawless reactions in all situations during the show. La Traviata is not a very hard, but very popular score! Therefore it should never be underrated», shared Dian Tchobanov.

Brazil’s version of trump: why is it «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align:justify">Racist, homophobe, misogynist and pro-torturer. Because of his profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such image and was considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker that she was too ugly to be worthy of raping. He said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why does Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How does such «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president? </p>
