Violetta Villas was an acclaimed worldwide known singer. Her powerful coloratura soprano voice spanned four octaves. But rather than pursue an operatic career, she preferred lighter genres; apart from classical compositions, opera arias and operettas, her repertoire included popular music, religious songs, Christmas carols.
Songs from her repertoire will be performed by the diva’s only pupil, Kris Louis Sieminski, with the accompaniment of Louis Quartet London, whilst Zofia Czernicka, a well-known Polish TV presenter, will introduce us to the star’s colourful personality as well as her eccentric and complicated life.
