The Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center

The Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center in Moscow Opened in 2002 by the legendary soprano Galina Vishnevskaya, the center is designed as an academy for the best young opera singers in Russia, extending their conservatory education and giving them the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in Russian opera. Vishnevskaya's stated aim is to preserve the specific traditions of Russian vocal art, and she has managed to find considerable funding and support.

The center's excellent, purpose-built theatre, which seats 318, is used to stage full operas, as well as concert performances and symphony and chamber orchestra concerts. The choice of repertoire so far has demonstrated the organizers' desire to give their charges a broad experience of different operatic styles, and to promote lesser-known and underperformed works by Russian composers. Alongside productions of Rigoletto, and Rimsky-Korsakov's A Bride for the Tsar, the theatre has also staged Glinka's Ruslan and Liudmilla, and Erenberg's almost forgotten comic opera Vampuka.

The center gives young singers the chance to gain invaluable stage experience working with established talents, and gives the public the chance to see stars-in-the-making right at the start of their careers.
