Edita Gruberova

Smetana Hall in Municipal House,

Called by critics and fans as "The Queen of Coloratura", "The Queen of Belcanto", "L'Unica" and "La Santa di Bratislava", Edita Gruberova is approaching living legend status, having debuted in Bratislava in 1967, but shooting to fame in 1976 when she played Zerbinetta in Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos under Karl Böhm at the Vienna State Opera.

Ever since, she has had a serious claim to be the world's number one coloratura soprano. Edita Gruberova is one of the great opera icons, whose many followers go to the theatre not only to listen to her, but actually to pay tribute to her.
