Honoured Artist of Ukraine, a leading soloist of Odessa Opera House Valeriy Benderov passed away

The management and staff of Odessa National Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre with great sorrow announce the death of Honoured Artist of Ukraine, a leading soloist of Odessa Opera House Valeriy Benderov.

For many years the artist served selflessly the musical and theatrical art, being recognized as the best performer of the part Calaf in the opera "Turandot" by G. Puccini at the opera festival "Tokyo Autumn" (Japan) and the best Othello in the opera by G. Verdi at the music festival in Marbella (Spain). Remaining perfectly faithful to his vocation, Valeriy generously gifted his talent and inspiration to the audience, shared his experience and knowledge with the young generation of singers, was a faithful and loyal friend, a loving husband and father.

We express our deep condolences to the relatives and friends.

The loving memory of Valeriy Benderov will live in our hearts forever. 

The commemoration will be held on September 2 at 10:30 in the auditorium of the theatre. Entrance from the Palais Royal.
