Dear Friends,

The Ildar Bakeev Entertainment Company is forced to announce that because of his indisposition German tenor Jonas Kaufmann will not be able to take part in the concert which opens the "New Year at the Conservatory" Festival  on December 31. His performance will take place later, and the negotiations about the new date are already being held. All the ticket owners for the Jonas Kaufmann Concert will be admitted to the Sylvester Concert at the Great Hall on December 31, 2017, and then keep their tickets until Jonas Kaufmann's concert which date will be given within a short time.
