“BELLA ITALIA!” – live performance by Nadezhda Kolesnikova

June 20, 2021 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm

Nadezhda Kolesnikova Opera Concert

Nadezhda will take us on a musical journey from north to south of Italy, starting with arias from Italy’s most famous, classical composers (Donizetti, Puccini and Verdi) and finishing with bright ballads of Neapolitan origin.

Nadezhda Kolesnikova  is currently pursuing her career as a lyric coloratura soprano at the prestigious Academy of The Teatro di Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. The Academy aims to foster talent, promote and disseminate musical culture among new generations and preserve the rich tradition of Italian opera.

Her experience at the Maggio Musicale is the culmination of many years of musical training and study. Born in Russia, Nadezhda graduated from the musical high school “I Rostropovich” and then continued her operatic studies in Florence under professors Benedetta Pecchioli and Anna Di Gennaro at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory.

Throughout her career Nadezhda has studied under and performed with many world famous singers such as: Montserrat Caballé (Spain), Éva Marton (Hungary), Luciana Serra (Italy), Brigitte Eisenfeld (Germany) and performed on major world stages: Berlin Philharmonic, International House of Music, Theaters in Pisa, Florence, Borgo San Lorenzo, Busetto (Verdi’s homeland), Concert Hall in Zaragoza (Spain), Concert Halls in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, The Franz Liszt Academy in Hungary and Kremlin Palace in Moscow.

Nadezhda’s vocal versatility, from serious dramatic, deep tones to bright colorful high notes, will delight you in this solo performance with a varied repertoire (from Donna Elvira to the Queen of the Night).


After the concert join us at the restaurant upstairs which offers traditional Tuscan, homemade cuisine. Rustic and electric, Demetra Hostaria, has five tables each seating between two and six guests. We recommend booking online https://www.demetrahostaria.com/menu/
