Susanna Poretsky, an inimitable combination of diva and chanteuse, will magically bring to life Russia’s greatest female entertainers of the past, performing the signature love songs of Nadezhda Obukhova, Anastasia Vyaltseva, Varya Panina, Izabella Yurieva and Klavdia Shulzhenko.
Two other RCAS favorites, collaborators par excellence, will perform with Susanna at this nostalgic and altogether delightful Valentine’s celebration: pianist Genadi Zagor and violinist Rafael Javadov.
