Bolonina proved in one fell swoop that Rimsky’s opera is real drama and that Kashcheyevna is fit to stand next to Kundry. Nothing Bolonina did or sang for the entire time she was on stage was wrong. Utterly, utterly accomplished in singing and acting, she could — frankly — have been singing the Yellow Pages: it would have been every bit as riveting.
Viktoria Bolonina, an Australian classical mezzo-soprano and contemporary singer who gained national recognition as a finalist on The Voice Australia with her chart-topping cover of "Bang-Bang" by Nancy Sinatra. Since then, she has released her own music, sold out shows across Australia, and performed internationally.
In 2018, Viktoria graduated with a Master of Music in Opera Performance from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, supported by a scholarship. She has taken on leading roles in productions such as Henry Purcell's "The Fairy Queen," Francesco Cavalli's "La Calisto," and Mozart's "The Magic Flute" with Opera Australia, all showcased at SCM.
In March 2018, Viktoria impressed audiences in the leading role of 'Kashcheyevna' in N.A. Rimsky-Korsakov's opera "Kashchey the Immortal" at the Melbourne Recital Center under the direction of Alan Cook of CitiOpera.
She also achieved recognition as a finalist in the Acclaim Awards Italian Bel Canto Opera competition in September 2018. Viktoria became a Principal Artist with Coast Opera Australia in 2019, delivering standout solos at various events, including the company's Season Launch and ANZAC day tribute at the Central Coast Stadium, from 2019 to 2021.
