An artist of immensely promising talent, Evelina Dobračeva began singing under the tuition of Professor Norma Sharp, Snezana Brzakovic and Professor Julia Varady at the Hanns Eisler Music College in Berlin, and she has participated in masterclasses with Professor Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Professor Thomas Quasthoff and Peter Konvitschny.
Adding to her list of successes, she has just recorded the Dargomyzhki's Rusalka with the WDR in Cologne conducted by Mikhail Yurovsky and the War Requiem with the Nederlands Radio PO.
The 2008 Verbier Festival proved to be another highly successful engagement for Evelina, earning her much praise for her performance as Fiordiligi in Cosi fan Tutte.
Other engagements also include a concert performance of Lokshin's Margarita's Songs with the Orchestra Verdi in Milan, under the direction of Rudolf Barshai and Strauss Four Last Songs with the Royal Liverpool PO conducted by Robin Ticciati,
