Anna Emelyanova began her studies at a very young age at the famous Gnessin State Musical College in her native Moscow. At first she trained as a pianist at primary school level but later switched to singing. Anna gained her Bachelor Degree at the Russian Academy of Music and achieved qualifications in the fields of Concert and Opera Performance, Chamber Ensemble Artist and Vocal teacher. The young singer performed several opera parts in the Academy’s Opera Studio.
Apart from be involved in classical music, she wrote music for a circus, worked at music studios as a guest artist and performed with different bands. But her mind was set on becoming an opera singer and in 2012 Anna came to the Netherlands to continue her studies with professor Axel Everaert at the Conservatory in Maastricht where in 2015 she successfully finished a Master’s Programme in Solo and Opera singing with a Cum Laude degree. During this period Anna won a scholarship to participate in a high-level young artist’s program, the Mediterranean Opera Studio in Italy.
After her studies Anna was invited to sing for Opera Zuid. For the company she has by now performed quite a number of roles: Clorinda in La Cenerentola (Rossini), Gilda in Rigoletto (Verdi), Musetta in La bohème (Puccini), Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart), Sophie in Werther(Massenet) and recently Princess Elsbeth in Offenbachs Fantasio.
Currently Anna is preparing the role of Tatjana which she will perform in a pocket edition of Tsjajkovski’s Jevgeni Onegin, for the Nederlandse Reisopera this time.

She sings oratorios, teaches singing and piano and still works as a guest artist in different projects, including pop and rock music.
