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 portrayals of Eboli, Amneris, Carmen and Dalila, Borodina is one of the most sought after mezzo-sopranos performing at all major opera houses. Plácido Domingo conducts the Russian superstar duo in an intimate evening of Italian, German, and Russian opera arias and duets. "...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."
