For 25 years already, the singer has been performing in our theatre, giving joy and warmth to her audience. Her repertoire comprises hundreds of works of various genres. Vera Baranova's voice is a soprano of rare beauty and pure sound, it’s light, mobile, allowing to perform the arias of the coloratura and lyric soprano. Russian and foreign critics have more than once noted that “the singer performs at the highest professional level. She has really great talent, skills and a beautiful voice”. Over the years of her singing career, Vera Baranova has won the hearts of not only Krasnoyarsk audience - her name is known to classical admirers far abroad.
This evening, Vera Baranova's students, pupils from children's opera studio, leading opera and ballet soloists and the theatre choir singers, as well as the choreographic ensemble "Expression" and invited singers will come to the stage to congratulate the prima donna. Four maestros are going to conduct the orchestra, replacing each other at the conductor's stand - Honoured Artists of Russia Anatoly Chepurnoy and Alexander Kosinsky, Dmitri Khodosh and Ilmar Lapinsh (Latvia).
