Soprano Viktoria Khoroshunova was born (1986) in Odessa
(Ukraine). While still in primary school (1996), she was accepted
into the youth choir “Pearls of Odessa” where she remained a
regular member until 2004. The ensemble did concerts in
Ukraine, Russia and Europe, but also functioned as childrens'/
youth chorus in productions of the Odessa National Opera.
She was qualified for the Fine Arts Lycée in 2002, where she had piano lessons along with a
broad basic musical training also as a childrens' choir conductor. She began her formal vocal training
at the Odessa National Music Academy in 2005, under Singing Professor Larissa Garelik. In 2008 she
emigrated to Athens, Greece and shortly afterward was accepted into the Athens Conservatory,
where under Prof. George Misailides she obtained her singing diploma in 2014, with the jury
unanimously awarding her top score for her performance. Shortly after attaining her Vocal Diploma
she studied the role of Tatiana in “Eugene Onegin” (Tchaikovsky) at the Bolshoi Theater, with the
theater's former assistant Artistic Director, Proffessor Yuri S. Udalov.
In May 2015 she was accepted into a monthlong training program at the Santa Cecilia Opera
Studio in Rome, where she received intensive coaching in all aspects of operatic performance from a
distinguished faculty including Renata Scotto, Anna Vandi, Cesare Scarton, Fabio Centanni and
Stefano Giannini, culminating with her participation in a concert at the Parco Della Musica
Auditorium. Following her stay in Rome, she participated in the Musical Odyssey summer master
classes in Nafplio - Greece, where she worked on repertoire with sopranos Jenny Drivala and Susan
Bullock, and with the pianist/vocal coach Manolis Papasifakis, where she performed on public
evening concerts that accompanied the master classes. At the end of this program she was chosen by
the Musical Odyssey faculty among a select number of master class participants for concert
appearances, as a result of which she performed two recitals in London (March 2016), a lunchtime
concert at the City Lit Institute and an evening recital at the Leighton House co-sponsored by the
Aspect Foundation.
In December 2015 she was awarded the "Maria Callas Award" for young artists, from the
Piraeus (Greece) chapter of UNESCO. In the summer of 2016 she participated in the Festival of the
Aegean (conductor Peter Tiboris, General Director) on Syros island, as a member of the Greek Opera
Studio directed by soprano Eilana Lappaleinen. This included intensive coaching, performance of
opera scenes at Syros historic Apollo theater/opera house, solos in oratorio concert, and preparation
of the role of Nedda as a "cover" for the Festival's full production of Leoncavallo's Pagliacci (which
starred tenor Piero Guliacci, baritone Massimiliano Fichera, and Ms. Lappaleinen, conducted by
Gregory Pakor and staged by Detleff Soelter).

Onegin), the Countess (Nozze di Figaro), Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Violetta (La Traviata) and Liu
(Turandot). Ms. Khoroshunova speaks Russian, Ukrainian, Greek, English, and intermediate Italian.
