Zhanna Dombrovskaya

The temperamental ‘acting singer’ Zhanna Dombrovskaya gave the fierily assertive and desperately decisive character of Elettra the features of a wicked Fury, of a tigress preparing to make her fatal leap.



Zhanna Dombrovskaya was born in Pyatigorsk. Graduated from the St Petersburg State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatoire (class of Professor Svetlana Gorenkova) and the Mariinsky Academy of Young Singers. Soloist with the St Petersburg State Musorgsky Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet from 2001 to 2003. Mariinsky Theatre soloist since 2003.
