A little bit about me;
(Despite her young age, Christina, nicknamed “The Nightingale” among many, has addressed audiences all over Europe, Asia and South America. She was accepted with scholarship when she was just 18 to The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
In 2012 she made her operatic debut at The State Opera, Prague as The Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and Adele in Strauss’s Die Fledermaus.
She has performed at Kazan Opera House, Russia as Olympia from Les contes d’Hoffmann by Offenbach, sung on tour in Europe as The Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte and Olympia from Les contes d’Hoffmann. She premiered in the
production of Puccini’s Tosca and has sung 3 seasons of Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at The Estates Theatre, Prague.
She has also starred as Mozart’s pupil, Katerina Cavalieri in the Broadway staged production of Amadeus this year. It will be repeated at The Estates Theatre, Prague on 19th October 2017.

She regularly sings with various conductors and orchestras all over Europe and has had solo tours around Czech Republic, Slovakia, Asia and South America.
On numerous occasions, she has sung for various Embassy’s and Heads of State, most notably being the President of the Czech Republic, various Presidents of EU Countries and President of the People’s Republic of China, who invited her to sing in China for the 70 year celebrations of the end of World War II.
She was also chosen to sing in Hebrew by the Israel Ambassador for the Day of Jerusalem that was broadcast to the Mayor of Jerusalem.

Christina regularly sings for Prague Film Festival which is held each year and has
sung also for many film scores, most recently being the Czech film “Století
Miroslava Zikmunda” and “Aldabra 3D” and for the 2017 British film “Interlude in
Prague” about Mozart.
Her debut CD “BLESSING” was recorded with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and released on September 22nd.)

The album "Blessing" released on Tadlow Classics is available to buy at iTunes and Amazon.
Tickets for the concert are available below and on the door: http://www.ticketline.co.uk/christina-johnston

I will also be selling CD’s in the interval where you can also have food and wine and then I will be signing the CD’s and programmes after the concert.

It would be lovely to have your support and to sing to everyone live, they won’t be disappointed!
