The 9th Cyprus-Russia Gala

A press conference to announce the 9th annual Cyprus-Russia Gala, now firmly established as one of Cyprus’ foremost cultural and social events, was held at Cyprus Hilton Hotel on Wednesday 24th June. The Cyprus-Russia Gala celebrates the long and enduring bond between Cyprus and Russia, based on mutual friendship, trust and patronage at both government and individual level. Apart from its cultural and diplomatic importance, the event has a strong charitable focus – supporting the Radiomarathon Foundation.

The press conference reconfirmed to the media the Gala’s aims, and revealed an outstanding programme for the 2015 event. Artists from both countries will unite their voices and talents, helping to cement the Cypriot-Russian relationship.

The star-studded line-up for the Cyprus-Russia Gala 2015 includes:

  • Svetlana Zakharova, one of today’s most decorated and distinguished ballet stars, prima ballerina with the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet
  • Bayan Mix, a unique virtuoso folk duo representing the best of Russian music
  • Alexandra Vorobyova, one of Russia’s most exciting and successful young female vocalists, a winner of the Voice of Russia Contest in 2014
  • Anton Belyaev, a charismatic singer and composer with his popular band Therr Maitz
  • The legendary group Diastasis, whose music provides a real taste of Cyprus and its culture
  • Singer John Karayannis, a rising star who was selected to represent Cyprus at Eurovision Contest 2015
  • Maria Elena Kiriakou, a winner of the Voice of Greece Contest who represented Greece at Eurovision Contest 2015
  • Singer and songwriter Doros Demosthenous, one of Cyprus’ biggest musical talents.


This exceptional event could not be held without the continuing support of the Gala’s major sponsor, Interros Group – who also supported the Gala in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013. The Group is well – known as a cultural and charitable sponsor in Cyprus, and also plays an active role in supporting humanitarian projects in Russia and all around the world.

The Cyprus-Russia Gala is organised and presented by Ensemble Productions Ltd, with the high patronage of the First Lady of the Republic of Cyprus, Mrs. Andri Anastasiades.

This year the Gala will take place on the 12th September 2015, at the Presidential Palace.
