Toronto’s Show One Productions was founded in 2004 by the enterprising Russian born impresario Svetlana Dvoretsky. Initially focused on classical music, the company has since expanded greatly and is now a leading presenter of high-profile International artists, symphony orchestras, theatre and dance companies and special projects. The company is especially proud of its presentations of Mikhail Baryshnikov, John Malkovich, Michel Legrand, Slava Snow Show, Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra, Vladimir Spivakov and the Moscow Virtuosi, Eifman Ballet, the Vakhtangov Theatre, opera stars sopranos Sondra Radvanovsky and Hibla Gerzmava, and the late baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Trio Magnifico Opera Gala – the historic union and once-in-a-lifetime event at The Four Seasons Opera House of soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Yusif Eyvazov in their Toronto debuts, with Hvorostovsky in his last Toronto appearance – remains an exceptional musical memory in the history of the performing arts in Canada. Dvoretsky is a proud recipient of the Order of York by the Government of Canada for “an outstanding contribution in art and culture.”
Slava has specialized in building modern custom developments across Toronto, and recently took on a new challenge of preserving heritage buildings that can be integrated into the city’s contemporary landscape. His latest and proudest achievement is the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit — a venture that began by converting a 5-storey industrial base of a 50 year-old high-rise office tower to a magical installation of 600,000 cubic feet projections.
He had to re-develop the existing space into a safe and visually unobtrusive arena for showcasing Van Gogh’s work on an astonishing scale. Considering all the supporting elements behind the production, imagination and innovation were at the core. For Slava, the project reached extraordinary heights and expanded beyond anything that has ever been done before. What was once the home to Toronto Star’s printing presses was conceptualized into the world’s first drive-in art experience.
The old and the new, commerce and culture, architecture and technology – all existing thrillingly, side by side. Slava Zheleznyakov is the man who made it happen.
