Recent Intermusica signing, Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva will make her role and house debut on October 7 singing Violetta in Verdi’s La Traviata at the Stadthalle in Göttingen. This will also be the young singer’s debut in Germany. The performances will be conducted by Christoph-Mathias Mueller conducting the Göttingen Symphony Orchestra.
Venera is currently part of the Young Artists Programme at the Bolshoi Theatre in St Petersburg. She has been a star of the programme, singing a wide variety of roles. Her recent performances have included Sirin in The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh and of the Maiden Fevronia and the title role in The Snow Maiden, both by Rimsky-Korsakov. In February 2010, Venera sang Serpina in concert performance of Pergolesi’s La serva padrona with Moscow Chamber Orchestra Musica Viva, conducted by Alexander Rudin. She has toured with the Bolshoi Theatre Young Artists Program to Baku and Washington, and she performed at the Moscow Conservatoire Big Hall with Moscow Philharmonic Academic Orchestra, conducted by Yuri Simonov.
