Thank you Vasili for such a wonderful performance for my husband's 40th birthday celebration at Belvoir Castle. Our guests were left in awe by the breathtaking 45 minutes of opera they were able to experience so up close. Vasili is not only a great singer but also a fantastic performer. Thank you!

Simply extraordinary, from start to finish. Vasili patiently and proactively designed and supported an intricate event plan for maximum effect, and then delivered a stunning performance from the heart that will truly never be forgotten. A magical voice. Bravo and, for sure sometime in the future, we will ask for an encore.

Vasili was exceptional! I booked him for my mum’s surprise 70th Birthday. He was a complete professional and very personable from start to finish. He kept in touch along the way to make sure everything was perfect including the set list that mum would like and arrival and set up times. On the night his performance was outstanding and his voice just beautiful. The whole family felt that we were watching something incredibly special. The night has given us wonderful memories to treasure always. Thank you so much
