Svetlana Zlobina




Mezzosoprano Svetlana Zlobina performed in Händel’s Orlando at the Oper Oder Spree Festival in 2016 receiving these reviews: “Svetlana Zlobina as Medoro has a wonderfully melancholic contralto voice of dark warmth. In a rare and touching way it sounds like a combination of fire and ice.” Zlobina's professional opera debut took place in 2012 in her hometown Moscow when she was invited to sing two new operas Songs at the well by E.Langer (world premiere) and The Blind by L.Auerbach (Russian premiere) in the project "Laboratory of contemporary opera" at The Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre in Moscow. There she also sung Tangia in Gluck’s Le Cinesi. In 2013 followed the debut as Polina in The Queen of Spades at the State Music Theatre in Saransk. At the Novaya Opera Theatre she portrayed the role of Zefka in L.Janácek's Intimate diary 2014-2016. She has sung Bradamante in Alcina at the Natalia Sats Opera Theatre for Children and Young Audience, the Little robber girl in The story of Kai and Gerda by S.Banevich since 2014 at the Bolshoi Theatre and Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas by H.Purcell in Central Actors’ House in Moscow. In the summer 2015 she was a participant at Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg in Germany performing Annina in La Traviata. In 2015 she took part in Melisande (Romantisches Singspiel) by J.Kinkel-G.Kinkel in the role of Zorayde in LVR – Landesmuseum Bonn.
