The final concert of the winners of the XXI Youth Delphic Games of Russia.
From April 22 to April 27, 2022, the XXI Youth Delphic Games of Russia were held in Krasnoyarsk. The Krasnoyarsk Territory hosted the Games for the second time - before that they were held in the region in 2006.
The holding of the XXI Youth Delphic Games of Russia is aimed at facilitating the implementation of the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin dated December 30, 2021 No. 745 “On Holding the Year of the Cultural Heritage of the Peoples of Russia in the Russian Federation”. Particular attention during the Games was paid to the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Yenisei province and the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Krasnoyarsk.
The Games were organized by the National Delphic Council of Russia and the Government of the Krasnoyarsk Territory in cooperation with the federal government bodies of the Russian Federation. The Games were given the patronage of the International Delphic Committee and the auspices of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO.
The competitions are the national qualifying stage for the formation of the national team for participation in the Sixteenth Youth Delphic Games of the CIS Member States (second half of 2022, Republic of Tajikistan, Dushanbe) and the First Youth Arctic Delphic Games (November 24-28, 2022, Komi Republic, Syktyvkar and Vorkuta).
Among the Delphic laureates are the soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre, the Milan Opera House "La Scala", the Paris State Opera House "Grand Opera", the London Royal Opera House "Covent Garden", the New York Musical Theatre "Metropolitan Opera", Vienna State Opera, the National Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre of the Republic of Belarus, the Kazakh National Opera and Ballet Theatre named after K. Baiseitova, winners and prize-winners of the International Tchaikovsky Competition, "Eurovision" and "Junior Eurovision” contests.
In the field of creativity, the Delphic Games hold a place similar to the position of the Olympic Games in sports. Games are developing as a global system for finding and supporting young talents, self-realization of young people in the artistic, scientific, technical and creative fields and education of the younger generation. Since 1999, more than 100 world, international and national Delphic Games have been held. The Games are financed at the expense of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation hosting the event and sending delegations, federal and regional grants, and extrabudgetary sources. Russian Public Opinion Research Centre stated that the Games have become a highly visible phenomenon in public life.
