The Crystal Turandot Award to Maria Guleghina!

The Crystal Turandot Award together with Helikon Opera Theatre in Moscow presented a new international multicultural project Maestri League. The prize – a sign of recognition of colleagues and critics – is awarded to actors and musicians for outstanding creative achievements. The first ceremony, on April 26, was dedicated to the world opera star Maria Guleghina.

For the concert after the award ceremony, the “Russian soprano with Verdi’s music in the blood” wore an incredibly luxuriant gown by Slava Zaitsev: made of black silk, it was decorated by bands embroidered in gold floral motifs. The waist was chinched by a black silk band; the long sleeves had a slightly loose line; the v-shaped neckline had a wide standing collar with lace trim. “This dress would be appreciated by Giuseppina Strepponi,” said the soprano.

Perfect for Guleghina, the tsarina of Russian opera!
