Kristīne Opolais — koncerts (IZPĀRDOTS)

Kristine Opolais - concert

26 August, 19:00 | Ola Foundation

The evening of August 26 will be very special in the Ola Foundation cultural space, as the charming and popular star of world opera music, Latvian soprano Kristīne Opolais, who will perform together with the well-known pianist Agnes Egliņa, will give a beautiful solo concert.

The evening's program will include famous arias from the operas of Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Francesco Chile, Antonin Dvořák, romantic piano miniatures, including Felix Mendelssohn's "Songs without words" and the compositions of the Baltic German Nikolai von Wilm. 

For the first time, the two artists performed with a joint concert program in 2020 in China, in the largest concert hall in Shanghai. This performance was remembered by the artists with the loud and passionate ovations of the audience, where the audience greeted each of Kristine's songs with great cheers. It was a truly unforgettable evening! 

Kristine Opolais: "I can't sing at all without real emotions. The sound I produce with my voice is only possible through my emotions. A beautiful voice alone means nothing to me. When I sing, I open my soul - my pain, my joy, my fear.''

In 2023, several concerts are planned for Kristīne Opolais together with Agnese Egliņa - in Austria, in the Haydn Hall of the Esterházi Palace, in Hungary - in the Budapest Opera House, as well as a concert tour to South America is planned for the month of November.

Therefore, it will be a special pleasure and honor to listen to this concert program here in Latvia, in the special atmosphere of the Ola Foundation cultural space.
