Yulia Mennibaeva

Mezzo from Russia - 31 years old

I was born in the beautiful city of Yaroslavl in Russia.

From 2005 to 2010 I studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. In 2012 I graduated from the Popov Academy of Choral Arts in Moscow and completed my assistantship there in 2015. I have achieved success at several competitions, including second prize and special prize for the best performance of Russian music at the International Competition Francisco Viñas in Barcelona, 2016.

I am a soloist of the Kolobov Novaya Opera Theatre of Moscow, where roles I have performed include Dido (Dido and Aeneas), Maddalena (Rigoletto), Olga (Eugene Onegin), Kontchakovna (Prince Igor), Vanya (A Life for the Tsar), Fenena (Nabucco) and Spring (The Snow Maiden).

On the concert stage, I have performed in Verdi’s Requiem in Locarno and Milan, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle in my home town of Yaroslavl, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Mozart’s Requiem and Karl Jenkins’ Mass The Armed Man in Moscow.

In 2017 I performed Amelfa (The Golden Cockerel) at the Concertgebouw, Geneviève (Pelléas et Mélisande) in Oviedo in 2018, and Bersi (Andrea Chénier) in Barcelona in 2018 with Jonas Kaufmann as Andrea Chénier. In Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Festival last year, I sang Delilah (Samson and Delilah), and earlier this year I sang the role of Ulrica (Un ballo in maschera) in Tel Aviv with Israeli Opera.

When I’m not singing, I try to spend time with my family. My sоn Yaroslav is six years old, and I’m really enjoying watching him grow up.

Cefais fy ngeni yn ninas hardd Yaroslavl yn Rwsia.

Astudiais yn Ysgol Gerdd Tchaikovsky ym Moscow rhwng 2005 a 2010. Yn 2012, graddiais o Academi Celfyddydau Corawl Popov ym Moscow, cyn cwblhau fy mhenodiad academaidd yno yn 2015. Rydw i wedi cael llwyddiant mewn llawer o gystadlaethau, gan gynnwys yr ail wobr, a gwobr arbennig am y perfformiad gorau o gerddoriaeth Rwsia, yng Nghystadleuaeth Ryngwladol Francisco Viñas yn Barcelona, 2016.

Rydw i’n unawdydd gyda Theatr Opera Kolobov Novaya Moscow, ac mae’r rhannau rydw i wedi’u perfformio yn cynnwys Dido (Dido and Aeneas), Maddalena (Rigoletto), Olga (Eugene Onegin), Kontchakovna (Prince Igor), Vanya (A Life for the Tsar), Fenena (Nabucco) a’r Gwanwyn (The Snow Maiden).

Mewn cyngherddau, rydw i wedi perfformio Requiem Verdi yn Locarno a Milan, Petite Messe Solennelle gan Rossini yn Yaroslavl, fy nhref enedigol, Gloria gan Vivaldi, Requiem gan Mozart ac Offeren Karl Jenkins, The Armed Man, ym Moscow.

Chwaraeais ran Amelfa (The Golden Cockerel) yn y Concertgebouw yn 2017, Geneviève (Pelléas et Mélisande) yn Oviedo yn 2018, a Bersi (Andrea Chénier) yn Barcelona yn 2018, gyda Jonas Kaufmann yn chwarae rhan Andrea Chénier. Yng Ngŵyl Tchaikovsky ym Moscow y llynedd, cefais gyfle i ganu Delilah (Samson and Delilah), a ddechrau’r flwyddyn bûm yn canu rôl Ulrica (Un ballo in maschera) yn Tel Aviv gydag Israeli Opera.

Pan nad ydw i’n canu, byddaf yn ceisio treulio amser gyda fy nheulu. Mae fy mab, Yaroslav, yn chwech oed, ac rydw i wir yn mwynhau edrych arno’n tyfu i fyny.
