She will sing (with the Orchestra) arias from the operas by Rossini, Donizetti, Massenet and popular masterpieces of Delibes, Jimenez and Lehar.
In the second part of each concert, Vladimir Spivakov will present to the audience his interpretation of one of his most beloved works by Russian composers - Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances.
