June 2021 A festival for Beethoven Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg

On the occasion of the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, top-class ensembles and soloists from the Chamber Opera Schloss Rheinsberg play works by the German composer that reflect Beethoven's special closeness to nature. Among other things, the famous Pastoral Symphony will be experienced, the individual movements of which are based on the impressions of a (city) person in the rural surroundings, and the ballet "The Creatures of Prometheus" or the choir fantasy will also be heard. Over the course of two days, visitors will be guided through different courses to the individual musical stations, which, in the combination of music and nature with the change between well-known and numerous rarely played works, promise an outstanding event for the Beethoven year.

"During two auditions for the role of 'Rosalinde' in the presence of the intendant of the festival KLANGBADHALL, Ernst Theis, and the director of the production 'Die Fledermaus', Gerald Pichowetz, the young Russian soprano Ksenia Valentina was able to convince both times impressively."

In February 2020, Ksenia was one of the winners of the international vocal competition Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg. She will take part in the Festival of Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg in summer 2021.

The directors of the production “Die Fledermaus” 2019 Ernst Theis and Gerald Pichowetz were so enthusiastic about the Russian soprano Ksenia Valentina at the casting for the role that she was accepted into the KLANG-BADHALL-Academy. The academy is a funding program of the festival and is intended to support the young singer in her development. She will receive several months of language coaching, a special role study under the direction of the director and the opportunity to publicly present herself as an aspiring artist in various advertising activities of the festival. – Festival Klang Bad Hall

In 2017 Ksenia made her debut as first solo soprano in Mozart’s great Mass in C Minor at the Great Hall of Cairo opera house. After several auditions she was invited by the chief conductor of the Cairo Symphony Orchestra Maestro Ahmed El Saedi. Among worldwide applicants she was selected by an internationally renowned jury as one of 17 participants for the Vocal department of the XII Winter International Arts Festival Sochi in February 2019. During the Sochi Vocal department Ksenia was taught by Dmitry Vdovin, Sergei Leiferkus, Alessandro Amoretti, Liubov Orfenova, Sebastian F. Schwarz and a special guest was Eva Wagner-Pasquier.

At the age of 6 she studied violin at the music school and showed a special interest in choir and solo singing in the class of Svetlana Davidenko. In 2011, she passed the final exam at Music College P.A. Serebryakov Volgograd in the class of Elena Yuneeva with honors (emphasis choir, ensemble and solo singing). During her college years, she became a graduate student in several Russian and international competitions, such as “Orfei”, “Art Vocal” or “Music without Borders” in Lithuania. 

After college, she began solo singing studies with Professor Tatiana Smelkova at the Herzen University of Music St.Petersburg. She became a graduate student at international level Estonia’s competitions. In addition, she reached the second place in the international competition “The Fifth International Competition Saint-Petersburg Reflected in World’s Musical Culture” and the first place in the international competition “Peter’s Paradise” in St. Petersburg.

In 2015 she passed the final exam and shortly thereafter moved to Vienna, where she studied at the Vienna Conservatory with Gabriele Rösel and privately with Prof. Gerhard Kahry and Prof. Martin Vacha. She has also participated in masterclasses (e.g. with Claudia Visca), workshops (e.g. acting for opera singers with Leonard Prinsloo) and competitions. In May 2017 she appeared as Gianetta in G. Donizetti’s opera “L’elisir d’amore” as part of the Plusopera project Vienna in cooperation with the Otto Edelmann Society (Conductor: Anna Sushon, Director: Leonard Prinsloo). In 2018 she appeared on stage alongside solo appearances and TV appearances as Lucy in Menotti’s opera “The Telephone”.

"I immediately recognized her extraordinary talent, especially her beautiful, dark colored voice and her ability for acting on stage."
