Here is an Orange Twist with a very talented and determined young lady, soprano Vlada Borovko!

WE ALL KNOW HELLO STAGE’S FAVORITE COLOR! WHAT’S YOURS?

It depends on my mood and the season. In cold seasons I prefer warm colors such as red, gold, olive. In spring and summer I enjoy emerald, aquamarine and violet.

WHAT WAS THE BEST ADVICE A TEACHER EVER GAVE YOU?

My singing teacher Galina Lastovka gave me lots of advice about singing technique and interpretation. She taught me to work a lot and to appreciate professionalism. She advised me to be self-critical and single-minded at the same time. She always underlined that a strong character is the decisive factor in becoming a good opera singer.

HOW HAS YOUR PRACTICE CHANGED WITH TIME?

Every school year brought me loads of information. The first 2 years I concentrated on simple material to achieve legato, to make my middle register more beautiful. Later on, I started to work at more difficult arias adding small roles to my repertoire. Luckily, as a student, I made my debut on the opera stage. This experience helped me a lot in the development of my singing and acting skills. I always tried to use any opportunity to have practice. I always continue to work on my own after classes.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TRAIT OF A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST IN TODAY’S MODERN WORLD?

The most important thing is to be a true musician at all times. It means to love art, to practice, to widen one's outlook, to be a humanist.

HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SPEND EVERY DAY ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND WHICH OTHER WAYS DO YOU USE TO PROMOTE YOURSELF?

I use social networks for communication and I often share news about my singing activities on Facebook. I also have a Youtube and Soundcloud channels. Participating in concerts and opera projects helps me to increase my professional contacts and to be represented to the audience.

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL HOBBY?/h3> I have a fancy for reading books. Émile Zola, Victor Marie Hugo, Emily Bronte and Fyodor Dostoyevsky are my favorites. Poetry inspires me too. I like to watch figure skating performances. When sport is combined with art it’s a pleasure for the eyes.

VLADA, TELL US ABOUT YOUR CURRENT PLANS! :)

I just finished the conservatory and I am ready for starting my professional career. I am currently preparing for my debut as Anna in Nabucco by G. Verdi. At the same time I am learning new stuff for upcoming concerts. I join the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme in the Royal Opera House from the start of the 2015/16 Season. It’s an amazing opportunity to get experience and knowledge; being involved in the working process of one of the best theatres in the world. To make my dreams come true I should work hard. Becoming a great artist is a long process and there's no limit to perfection.
