This month on Mezzo

Mezzo is a channel for discoveries, following the artists closely.

Every month we feature different artists and repertoires with concerts, live performances, exclusive footage and documentaries.

Russian Operas

The Russians possess some of the most melancholic Operas betwixt them.

From Tchaikovsky to Prokofiev or Shostakovich, these composers understand how to make the music talk. Moving and touching, painting characters that stay with us. The extraordinary vocal distributions and strong singing by the singers add to the theatrical charisma. With such conductors as Valery Gergiev and Kazushi Ono, one certainly won’t leave empty handed.
