Rarely is the classicism of music associated with the name of Ukrainian composer Dmytro Bortnianskyi. And yet, he was one of the few who was fortunate to receive a first-class European education in Italy, the cradle of the opera genre and create works for some of the most famous European theatres. The 240th anniversary of the premiere of by Dmytro Bortnianskyi’s ‘Alcide’, which was composed in 1778 to the libretto by Pietro Metastasio, is marked this year.
