Congratulations to Kristina Mkhitaryan who has successfully made it through to the final of the 2017 Plácido Domingo Operalia competition, currently being held in Astana, Kazakhstan.
We caught up with Kristina to find out how she feels:
“For three years in a row I sent my application for the competition but never got any further, so you can imagine how happy I was when I was told that I was accepted this year! To be around Plácido Domingo and of course the fantastic jury members is really special.
To be in the final is a a big responsibility for me. I have worked hard to prepare my repertoire! In the final, I have chosen my favourite role which is Lucia and I will sing ‘Regnava nel silenzio’ .”
Watch the final live on Saturday 29 July 2017 through Medici TV at 1pm BST.
Well done, Kristina and Toi Toi Toi!
