Maria Mudryak will sing a Kazakh folk melody at the EXPO 2017 Opening Ceremony in Astana
A famous opera singer Maria Mudryak will take part in the Opening Ceremony of the International EXPO 2017 Exhibition that will be held on 9 June, 2017 in Astana. She will sing the Vocalise to the music of the folk song “Yapurai”, a lyrical symbol of Kazakh music.
The name of the young opera singer Maria Mudryak is well known in the music world. The Kazakhstani are justifiably proud of their compatriot, who sings at the best stages of the world. Her young dramatic coloratura soprano has been compared by many a critic to the voice of the legendary Maria Callas.
“I am happy to sing at the Exhibition EXPO-2017, which is being held in my home country. I am very proud that my Kazakhstan will become the center of the world’s attention in the sphere of Energy of the Future!” says the opera singer Maria Mudryak. “I would like to invite guests from all over the world to partake in the joy of this event together with me and my country! I have an overwhelming feeling of responsibility and happiness, I know that my number will be magical; I will be singing the Kazakh folk melody "Yapurai", which flows from the past to melt harmoniously in the present, and flies, transformed, into the Energy of the Future!
The song “Yapurai” was not selected by accident. Nearly everyone in Kazakhstan knows it. This amazingly sublime and poetic music embodies the purity and wisdom of the Kazakh people serving as a vivid example of the artistic wealth of Kazakh folk music. Although it is almost a century old, “Yapurai”, has not lost its popularity, continuing to stir the listeners by its beauty. It has been sung repeatedly by pop singers, the folk choir and even by Kazakh jazz bands.
“The Vocalise on the basis of “Yapurai” to be sung by the illustrious Maria Mudryak will be accompanied by a spectacular show dedicated to the Energy of the wind, because the Kazakh folk song is the song of Kazakhstan’s steppe winds and its vast open spaces”, says Vyacheslav Kulaev, the Opening Ceremony production director, “I will not disclose all the secrets, however, the performance will feature real sailing ships, and at some point the kinetic scenery behind Maria’s back will turn into one of the beautiful symbols of the wind, flight and purity.
