Olga Peretyatko has postponed her concert at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow.

The soprano was originally set to perform on April 9 with Grigory Shkarupa, the Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra, and conductor Mikhail Shekhtman. The program was set to include music by W. A. Mozart, Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Rossini, Verdi, and Donizetti. However, the concert will now be performed on Oct. 8, 2022.

The news comes as many artists around the world are either canceling or postponing concerts in Russia due to the war in Ukraine.

Peretyatko was one of the first artists to oppose the war and on Feb. 24 took to her Instagram and stated, “I’m 50% Russian and 50% Ukrainian – stop this madness!!!” 

The soprano next performs a concert in Belgium before making her role debut as Lucrezia Borgia at the Teatro Comunale di Bologna.
