The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre presents MARIANNA ENSEMBLE Russia/Australia
HISTORIA DE UN AMOR – A STORY OF LOVE
Marianna started as a Russian duet in 2001 consisting of two sisters; Maria Okunev (voice/piano/guitar) and Anna Okunev (violin). In 2009 Blake Keep (guitar) and Richard Savery (Clarinets/Saxophone) joined the ensemble.
The ensemble draws on the multi talents of its members, which between them share backgrounds in opera, jazz, folk and contemporary music. Since its conception the ensemble’s original compositions and arrangements of folk and classical repertoire have been winners of several awards.
The ensemble is frequently featured in ABC Classic FM Live and recorded broadcasts. They appear in major Australian jazz and world music festivals, as well as major jazz and classical venues.
Joining the Marianna Ensemble will be Australian champion ballroom dancers, Vladimir Okunev and Adelina Abushaeva, providing a complete feast for the ears and the eyes! Listen to thrilling sounds of Marianna and watch these exquisite dancers perform original choreography to Marianna’s music, dressed in specially designed, stunning gowns.
