Star guest performers – soloists from the Royal Opera House, Mariinsky Opera, St Petersburg, the Bolshoi, Moscow – sing popular Russian and International arias, songs, and romances by famous composers, as well as classical folk songs, in this delightful show for music lovers.

The genres in the Finale of the Ninth International Russian Song Festival and Contest, UK are: Classical, Romance Song, Folk, and Best 20th-century.

Chair of the Judges: Larisa Gergieva, National Artist of Russia.

Programme for the evening:
1) Opening Ceremony (including fantastic guest performances, a video tribute to the great Russian singers Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Elena Obvaztsova, and an exhibition of photos)

The evening will begin with an exhibition of photographs of both singers in the foyer, kindly lent to us by Elena Obraztsova Centre, our partners in the project, and will be followed by a premiere screening of a moving and profound short film, commissioned by Eurolog UK, and directed by Pavel Soro (Sorofilm), in memory of these great singers, accompanied by the soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre Larisa Rudakova and the British Imperial Orchestra conducted by Dr Graham Jones.

2) Over 40 of the best international, Russian and English arias, romances and songs performed by the competition’s international finalists

Guest performers will be followed by the finalists of the international vocal contest in four categories: classical, Russian romances, folk and modern songs. The main genre of the competition will be classical. Another wonderful category that brilliantly represents Russian culture is Russian romance, and the music covers the period from the eighteenth century to the present day. The musical spectrum of the festival is very broad.

The panel of judges will be headed by the National Artist of Russia - Larisa Gergieva, (sister of the conductor Valery Gergiev), the Head of the Music Academy at the Mariinsky Theatre. Other well-known judges include Amanda Roocroft, Professor of Vocal Studies at the RCM; Dr. Graham Jones, MBE, the former Royal conductor; the National Artist of Russia, soloist of the Mariinskiy Theatre Vasily Gerello; Larisa Rudakova, Professor at Moscow Conservatoire and Irina Chernova, the Director of the Elena Obraztsova Centre.
