When I listened to the music of the opera as a whole, immediately appreciated its beauty and melody. The composer wrote the opera according to the rules of the genre: all well-sustained, each character has a leitmotif, its character, and most importantly, this is reflected in the music.

I myself have not stepped on the stage musical theater, had not participated in musical productions and I had a good emotional hunger that I could satisfy, working on his role in the opera “Chanar Hus”. It has also been interesting to apply their skills, tried and tested during training in GITIse and share their experiences with young artists. During the performance of training conducted master classes in acting and even staged fight scenes with swords, and the scene of death of the protagonist.

Staging was very organic, it reflects the cultural component of the Khakass people, because Aleksandr Aleksandrovich relied on the traditional musical culture. Music in the opera sounds very organically with modern trends.
