  • Vita

    I started my music education with piano and singing. By the age of 10 I had won various competitions as a singer and pianist and performed with Kirov Philharmonie at various children's projects. At the age of 15 I moved to Moscow to study singing under Prof. Ruzanna Lisizian at Gnessin State Musical College. Later I continued my singing education in Hannover. In the following years I made my studies in Italy under Mrs. Mirella Freni at the accademia di Belcanto. After receiving my degree as an opera singer I joined the ensemble at the Opera Theatre in Magdeburg. Following that I studied Modern Music Performance in Lugano Switzerland and got a teaching degree at the Mannheim Universtity of Music and Performing Arts in Germany. After this study I continued working as a freelancer opera singer, I begun my own project „Mobile Musical School“ and „Creative TechLab“ for which I received the grant from the Medium Centre in Munich. I also worked as an assistant director at the opera festival „Rossini in Wildbad 2016“ and was a part of the drama festival team „New Europe“ in Cologne. As a freelancer opera singer I performed at the Rheinsberger Festival, Ticino Musica Festival, The Lugano Festival, The Vossa Jazz Festival, to name a few. I worked together with the composer Wolfgang Rihm and took master classes under Christa Ludwig, Barbara Bonney, Grace Bumbry and others.
