«MHP-Gromadi» Charitable Foundation supports operatic production «Zaporozhian beyond the Danube»
“We are committed to promoting Ukrainian identity through supporting cultural projects. We have a very important goal – to convey the heritage of our ancestors to the next generations. Many elements of Ukraine’s cultural heritage have been destroyed by the enemy: some being damaged by shelling and others being plundered by Russia. Ukraine has also suffering losses in human capital, with many performers and production staff serving on the front line or being displaced by the war. It is essential therefore for us to support Ukraine through cultural events to preserve our shared heritage,” says Tetiana Volochai, director of the «MHP – Gromadi» Charitable Foundation.
“The idea behind our new interpretation is to show the Cossacks as they really were: powerful, warlike and freedom-loving, able to withstand tough obstacles and fierce enemies. The performance is heroic, patriotic, and driven by the desire for independence,” said Oksana Taranenko, the opera’s director.
The opera’s characters fought for their right to be free and independent, demonstrating their love for their homeland. The opera further demonstrates that the will and spirit of the people of Ukraine cannot be broken.
