Grigolo and Pumeza will sing for Putin masses

The state newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta is claiming that ‘the best opera singers in the world – from Italy, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, Armenia and Russia – will be heard in the heart of St. Petersburg’ on May 31.

Those taking part in the official event include the Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo, Armenian soprano Juliana Grigoryan, Pumeza Matshikiza from South Africa, the bass Mateus Franz (Switzerland) and the Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Gour, who is a soloist at Cologne Opera.

Grigolo was banned at Covent Garden and other western companies after claims of misconduct.
