The programme “Sing, my soul” features a selection of operatic arias and chamber pieces performed by soprano Viktorija Miškūnaitė and baritone Eugenijus Chrebtovas. Both singers currently perform leading roles in the recent productions of the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre. Being recently awarded the title of the Best Opera Soloist of the Year 2015 and the Golden Cross of the Stage in the category of the best opera singer in 2016, Miškūnaitė can also pride herself on quite a few leading lyric soprano roles in her repertoire and polished dramatic skills, not to mention experience gained at the international competitions and master classes. She has always had a burning desire to become a singer.

Born in the Ukraine, Eugenijus Chrebtovas once confessed that he feels best in Lithuania, where his home is. He sees an ideal singer in the one who is capable of being absolutely honest with himself, an open-minded and conscientious professional. In terms of professional achievements, he has likewise a solid and extensive experience as an opera singer.

Pianist Darius Mažintas, who will accompany singers in this concert, says “it will feature a selection of arias from well-known operas, vocal pieces by Lithuanian composers, and a set of four Lieder by Richard Strauss, which he had dedicated to his future wife as a wedding present. We have also included a satirical song cycle by Vytautas Barkauskas about the rabbit and other animals.”
