Katerina Izmailova. Guest performers


Glorified singer of Verdi and Puccini’s leading parts (she debuted as Amelia on stage of the Bolshoi Theatre during opera premiere of Un ballo in maschera by Verdi, 2016), Oksana Dyka does not perform in Russian opera quite often. She had parts as Tatiana (Eugene Onegin) at LA Opera, Yaroslavna (Prince Igor) at Metropolitan Opera, Polina (The Gambler) at The Opéra de Monte-Carlo, whereas Shostakovich music she performs exclusively on a concert stage. 14th symphony and vocal cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry are in her repertoire. She dreams to sing Katerina on opera stage after having performed a fragment from Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District at International Music Festival in Baku in 2006.

Ivan Gyngazov (Helikon Opera) is an artist of a huge artistic potential. His recent works – part of Andrey (The Oprichnik by Tchaikovsky) at Mikhailovsky Theatre and Cavaradossi (Tosca by Puccini) at Helikon Opera was awarded with Onegin National Opera Prize. He performs at Mariinsky, The Semperoper, Theater an der Wien and many others. He is well familiar to the guests of the Bolshoi Theatre from Sadko where he holds title role.
