QUEEN – QUEEN OF BRITISH ROCK

By the time Queen appeared in the musical horizon, the world was already sick with Beatlemania, a fan of the Rolling Stones rebels and Pink Floyd philosophers. However, this did not stop the “queens” from catching the wave and lighting their star, a phenomenon which can be understood by turning over the pages of the history of the formation of the collective.

OPERA “AIDA” – INTERNATIONAL TRIUMPH GIUSEPPE VERDI

The opera Aida was written more than 140 years ago. Its premiere took place on December 24, 1871 in Cairo with a huge triumph, and still the work does not leave the stage of domestic and foreign theaters.

The government of Egypt a year earlier asked Giuseppe Verdi to write an opera on an Egyptian theme. But the composer agreed to take up the composition of Aida only in 1870.

“Aquarium”

Sometimes, in order to say in concise and succinct phrases about a particular group, its place in the musical horizon, and its role in the life of fans, you need to try to summarize all the many years of work of the team.

Boris Grebenshchikov called the Aquarium group a shining beast that brings people something that they lacked, which they themselves did not know about.
