Hailed by The News Tribune as “a young soprano to watch,” Ksenia recently completed a successful run as the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor with Tacoma Opera. Prior to her Seattle return, she was a Studio Artist at Tulsa Opera where she covered the role of Marguerite (Faust). As a Resident Artist with Opera San Jose, she performed in the student matinee of Lucia di Lammermoor and Il Barbiere di Siviglia (as Berta) as well as sang Madeleine in the West Coast premiere of Kevin Puts’ Silent Night. A frequent face in the Pacific Northwest, Ms. Popova made role debuts with Pacific Northwest Opera, Opera Coeur d’Alene, Tacoma Opera, and several symphonies.
I booked Ksenia to sing privately in the garden for my friend's 80th birthday. She was very responsive to my emails. She was very sweet and friendly to my friend and gave him a memory he will never forget. I would highly recommend her.
Response from Ksenia Popova, soprano:
Thanks, Brady! It was truly a pleasure
Ksenia Popova has a wonderful voice...all the guests at memorial tea for my mother all commented on her voice. I was so pleased she was able to sing at this event, which made it special. A number of the guests had already heard Ksenia sing.
Response from Ksenia Popova, soprano:
Thank so much, James! I'm so glad I could be part of such a important day.
