Opera Singer Ayuna Bazargurueva to Appear in Two Performances at the Primorsky Stage

This weekend, Ayuna Bazargurueva, an opera star from Buryatia and a soloist of the Mariinsky Theatre, will perform the primary female parts in such famous Italian operas as Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida and Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly for the first time at the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre.

Between 2009 and 2013 Ayuna Bazargurueva was a member of the Opera Company of the G. Tsydynzhapov Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. In 2014 she became a soloist with the Mariinsky Academy of Young Opera Singers and made her Mariinsky Theatre debut, appearing as Aida. In January 2024 she joined the Mariinsky Opera Company. “This is Saint Petersburg perfect school which, however, without any stretch can be called both Buryat and Italian. This is a Neapolitan sunny vocal amplified by Asian moderation,” critics noted the singer’s manner.

Ayuna Bazargurueva’s numerous awards include the 3rd prize at the Competizione dell’Opera (2012), the only largest competition where participants present solely an Italian repertoire.

This week, the masterpieces of Italian opera are to be performed at the Primorsky Stage. On February 8, 2024 Ayuna Bazargurueva will perform the primary female role in Aida by Giuseppe Verdi, and on February 10, 2024 she will appear as Cio-Cio-San in Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini.

“Any role should be emotionally colored because it is the emotional coloring that gives a certain tone to the sound. When I appear on the stage, I want the audience to experience new emotions and understand my heroines’ versatility. Every performance is my small challenge. To appear at the Primorsky Stage is twice important and thrilling,” the singer said before her meeting with Vladivostok audiences.
