ASU Journalism Students Are Invited Again toOpening Night atOpera &Ballet Theatre

Journalism students ofAstrakhan State University have taken anactive part inapress conference, dedicated tothe first showing ofopera Carmen, and then watched the performance aspart oftheir activities atthe Theatre Media Criticism School (headed byGalina Belolipskaya).

The theatre started preparing for the performance as early as in March, but the opening night was postponed several times because of the pandemic. That is why, as Art Director and Chief Conductor of the Astrakhan Theatre of Opera and Ballet Valery Voronin says, the first showing of Carmen is really long-awaited. It took place on September, 11 and 12.

ASU journalism students actively study tendencies of the performing arts and their connection with modern culture within various subjects like “Media Criticism”, “Journalism in Cultural Communications”, “Journalism as a Sociocultural Phenomenon”. Such connection with theatrical practices extends the professional competence of future experts in mass media and shapes their taste.

Spokeswoman of the Theatre of Opera and Ballet Lyudmila Rolina noted that it is important for them to keep implementing this educational project, aimed at potential upbringing of a generation of theatre media critics, with ASU. She also thanked the students for their interest in the performance.
