Washington National Opera will host an evening with Olga and Ildar - one performance only taking place on Saturday, Oct 3, 2009, 7:00 PM.

Last seen in WNO's 2007 production of Don Giovanni, Ildar Abdrazakov makes a triumphant return to Washington with his wife Olga Borodina for this special one-night performance.

Known for her portrayal of Eboli, Amneris, Carmen and Dalila, Borodina is one of the most sought after mezzo-sopranos performing at all major opera houses. Placido Domingo conducts the Russian superstar duo in an intimate evening of Italian, German and Russian opera arias and duets at The Kennedy Center Opera House.

"...to watch Borodina is to see the masterful emergence of a truly human, fully formed character, in all its vicissitudes and foibles, buttressed by some of the most luxurious, thrilling vocalism that one can hope to encounter in an opera house." ~ Opera News -- www.dc-opera.org
