The international forum "Vladivostok - a cultural window to Asia" was held in the capital of Primorye

On November 30, Vladivostok hosted the International Cultural Forum "Vladivostok - Cultural Window to Asia". The event took place at the State Seaside Opera and Ballet Theater.

In addition to representatives of the regional authorities, the theater and scientists, foreign guests took part in the forum. The artistic director of the Opera and Ballet Theater Anton Lubchenko, Director General of the Interuniversity Center of the World Trade Organization FEFU Viktor Fershta spoke at the "round table" held within the framework of the forum. The guests of the forum were the Deputy General Sul of Japan in Vladivostok Hasegawa Tomonori, theater artist No Sakai Otoshige, Director of Belcanto Japan Imase Yasuo and Head of the Art Department of the Seoul Arts Center Tae Seung Chin.

Anton Lubchenko spoke about the results of the theater's work and about the prospects for its development, including about the relations with the neighboring countries from the APR. In August next year will be the first summer Asian festival, participation in which will receive teams and artists from China, Korea, Taiwan, Japan and other countries.

Hasegawa Tomonore noted that many Japanese tourists have already visited performances and concerts in Vladivostok, however, in his opinion, if the theater will advertise in Japan, more tourists will want to visit it.

Speakers agreed that the Opera and Ballet Theater is an outpost of culture aimed at Asia. This direction, due to the geographical location of Vladivostok, according to the speakers, it is necessary to develop.

Another guest, Imase Yasuo, shared that he had already been to Vladivostok and performed at the city's venues. Now he has an idea for a large-scale project that he plans to implement. Together with Anton Lubchenko, they decided to stage Giacomo Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, in which a Japanese woman would play the main female role. In the future, the speaker plans to engage in ballet production.
