Kazakhstan--the eternal land. Endless steppe spilling out into the horizon, cascading mountains piercing cloud and sky, the Silk Road stretching across countless valleys, forests, and fields. For thousands of years Kazakh artists have drawn their musical inspiration from this enchanting landscape.

This extraordinary concert takes you on a journey to the great Silk Road through the unrivaled technique and passion of Kazakhstan's greatest musicians, composers, and vocalists. The program includes orchestral selections; duets, trios, and more from Kazakh classical operas and Western operas performed by the leading soloists of Kazakhstan's opera houses; and vocalists performing Kazakh songs accompanied by musicians from the best traditional music schools playing dombra and other ethno-folklore instruments. 

Performance Timing: 90 minutes, with no intermission.
