The Russian mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki before joining the Vilar Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. She made her Covent Garden début in 2003 as Flora in Verdi’s La traviata, and sang Second Maid in Strauss’s Elektra and Third Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.
