DUSTYESKY TO PLAY TWO SHOWS AT SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE - 21 AND 22 MAY
Your heart will soar. You will smile and cry for sure.
2ND SHOW ANNOUNCED!
Australia’s own Russian choir two perform TWO shows at
Sydney Opera House this month
Friday 21st May and Saturday 22nd May – tickets on sale now.
As featured on ABC TV's Australian Story, Australia’s genuine fake Russian choir Dustyesky announce a second concert appearance at the Sydney Opera House on Friday 21st May, 2021. Tickets on sale now.
“Dustyesky is ready to storm the bourgeois fortress of Sydney Opera House with song and love, vodka and borscht.”
Dubbed the Most Handsome Russian Male Choir to be seen in the southern hemisphere, Dustyesky came to be when 28 bearded blokes from the Northern Rivers coastal community of Mullumbimby came together to share beers and sing Russian songs. Something extraordinary - and frankly bizarre - happened, and Dustyesky was born.
None of them have a connection to Russia or even speak the language, yet Dustyesky has gained global notoriety, and stardom in the motherland, for their spirited renditions of Red Army and traditional Russian folk songs.
“We are 28 men driving one Big Lada from Mullumgrad to the summit of high culture, bearded and sweaty, eager to melt the permafrost hearts of Sydney.” -
Performing in four-part harmonies with gusto and élan, Dustyesky has amazed crowds at Woodford Folk Festival, Mullum Music Festival, Falls Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, and most recently WOMADelaide – becoming instant festival icons with their extraordinarily powerful voices, potent masculinity, and rustic charm.
The Dustyesky repertoire features the unforgettable State Anthem of the Russian Federation, alongside such classics as Orchy Chornye, The Red Army is the Strongest, and Kalinka, amidst lesser-known, no less breathtaking show-stoppers.
Don't miss their Sydney debut as they sing with pride, love, and respect, but not without a rich vein of humour and vitality.
The secret of Dustyesky is lost in the misty undergrowth of famous Mullumgrad hinterland. Like the recipe for gherkin liqueur, the magic of our music lies in the heart of all of us, but never one man alone. As rough as sawmiller's beard as gentle as his touch, Dustyesky is elusive yet eternal. Like the wind of the Siberian steppes, we shall blow within you forever. Your heart will soar. You will smile and cry for sure
