The “Shalyapin’s Seasons”
Invitations to visit the “Shalyapin’s Seasons” organized by the Foundation “Cultural and Educational Movement “To Facilitate Creative Education”

The important element of the evenings is a personal contact of the master of the event with every participant, the opportunity to feel oneself a part of this performance, to be involved in the event rather than just observe it from the outside, the opportunity to tell an unknown fact, to go deep into the Shalyapin’s epoch, to listen to songs, romances, stories, letters and a lot more that was characteristic of the culture of that time and place. It is planned to organize costume parties for guests to present the style of the beginning of 20th century (a defined dress-code for the meetings).

A participant of the loyalty programme gets the opportunity to be a participant of the Music Salons “Through Shalyapin’s eyes with Lyubov Kazarnovskaya”, special meetings with celebrities of all genres of arts “Celebrity Meetings”, Salons for beginning performers “The young for the young”, family musical brunches “The Tea-party at F.
