Joining them will be Talents of the World’s president, baritone David Gvinanidze, and soprano Olga Lisovskaya.

On December 22 is the company’s “Christmas Ball,” featuring an exciting lineup of rising and experienced artists. Among the guest performers are alto Alexandre Zazarashvili, recent winner of the “The Voice Kids” in Ukraine; bass Zachary James, who made his Metropolitan Opera debut this season as Amenhotep III in Philip Glass’ “Akhnaten;” and famed Verdi soprano Aprile Millo.

Both concerts will also see performances from the winners of Talents of the World’s International Voice Competition.
