One of the world's most thrilling operatic baritones, Viktor Korotich, is performing a unique solo concert at St Bride's, during a rare break from the stage at the world-famous Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg.

The prize-winning Russian singer, who has toured Europe with the Mariinsky Opera, presenting peerless performances of leading roles in Verdi's Don Carlo, Il Trovatore and Falstaff, Mozart's Così fan tutte and Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, has created a recital bringing together highlights of his favourite dramatic roles, including Rossini's Largo al factotum, Britten's Within this frail crucible of light, Tomsky's song from Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades, plus works by Richard Strauss, Berlioz, and Mascagni.
