Kaly Moldobasanov. "Maternal field."
Ballet oratorio in three acts.
Ballet oratorio in three acts, based on the novel of the same name by the national writer of the Kyrgyz Republic Chyngyz Aitmatov (libretto by M. Akhunbaev and M. Bayalinov).
The ballet oratorio "Mother Field" is the pinnacle of the work of the outstanding Kyrgyz composer, Hero of Socialist Labor, People's Artist of the USSR Kalya Moldobasanov.
The “Mother Field” is a truly national epic, in which not only musical traditions, but also the significant spiritual wealth of the people, philosophy and epic preserved in the monuments of national culture were embodied. Created in 1975 on the story of the same name by Chyngyz Aitmatov, the ballet oratorio was awarded the USSR State Prize for the first time in the history of Kyrgyz musical art in 1976 and was subsequently staged in many theaters of the former USSR and abroad.
The dramatic fate of a simple Kyrgyz woman Tolgonay, who lost her husband and three sons in the Great Patriotic War, found a vivid stage embodiment in the production of the People's Artist of the Kyrgyz Republic Urana Sarbagishev. The war took from Tolgonai the people most dear and close to her heart, an echo of which was the death of her beloved daughter-in-law Tolgonai. But the persistent woman did not break, her loving heart did not coarsen, because next to her the sprout of new life is the son of Aliman.
The performance, restored in 2008, is dedicated to the 80th birthday of the great Kyrgyz writer Chyngyz Aitmatov, as well as the opening of the next theater season 2008-2009.
