ChelPipe Group Shareholder Andrei Komarov Takes Part in Chelyabinsk Opera’s Board of Trustees Meeting

UrBC, Chelyabinsk, January 22, 2019. Governor of Chelyabinsk Region Boris Dubrovsky hosted a meeting with M.I. Glinka Chelyabinsk State Academy Opera & Ballet Theater’s Board of Trustees on December 18, 2019, with ChelPipe Group’s shareholders Andrei Komarov and Alexander Fedorov on the board among other members.

According to ChelPipe Group’s press service, the meeting was dedicated to the board’s performance throughout the year 2018 and to the plans for the year 2019. This year, the board intends to get the main stage and the ballet hall repaired and the theater’s infrastructure expanded, to set up the opera museum, support new releases, coordinate the theater’s guest performances in the Bolshoy Theater, and organize a festival in honor of Ekaterina Maximova.

‘Russian President Vladimir V. Putin declared the year 2019 the Year of The Theater. We work to support the state-owned and town-run theaters by financing new releases, investing in facilities, and helping organize guest performances in other theaters. Chelyabinsk is planning to host the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit and BRICS summit in 2020, so one task at hand, as a host, is to introduce our visitors to the area’s great creative potential,’ Governor Boris Dubrovsky said.

‘I am truly grateful to Governor Dubrovsky and my fellow board members for their personal involvement in and contribution to the board’s performance. In many respects, it was your support that made the achievement of our goals for 2018 possible. For one, I see the second independent production of The Cat’s House by young students from Children’s Singing School as one of last year’s greatest creative highlights. The opera was a great success with the Southern Urals’ audience. The school was set up at the Board of Trustees’ initiative two years ago and is now one of the largest local children’s organizations. We’ll keep on supporting and encouraging young talents; the school’s students will also perform in the theater’s latest rendition of La Bohème. Additionally, the best theater workers will keep receiving grants for their contribution to the theater’s artistic development,’ said Chair of Chelyabinsk Opera & Ballet Theater’s Board of Trustees and ChelPipe Group’s shareholder Andrei Komarov.
