Venera makes a major house debut on 30 April at the Semperoper Dresden. She returns to her acclaimed Violetta in La traviata, which has thrilled critics and audiences around Europe:
"Even an earthquake could not have dislodged the extraordinarily powerful Venera Gimadieva from her richly toned sonorities, expressive penetration and superb stagecraft."
