THE DEBUT OF AN ANGEL AT PERALADA

Julia Lezhneva is a young 27-year-old Russian virtuoso soprano who is now one of the most respected and widely acclaimed international opera singers. Since 2010, when she was invited to sing Rossini's Fra il padre by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, her career has rocketed. Born to sing, her delicate voice has led her to perform at opera houses and festivals all over the world, seducing audiences and critics with each performance. A self-confessed lover of Baroque music, the singer with the "angelic voice" and “pure tone" will be making her début at this year's Festival accompanied on the piano by Mikhail Antonencko. Together they will offer privileged audiences at the Carmen Church a recital from the opera repertoire, ranging from Baroque to bel canto with works by Vivaldi, Handel, Porpora, Schubert and Rossini. This young singer, with an amazing ability for coloratura, will be showing off her great technique and vocal agility in a performance that will undoubtedly conquer the hearts of Empordà audiences.
