The Gala – created by Ensemble Productions and the administration of the Cypriot government 13 years ago – has become one of the most significant events in Cyprus and one of the most important events related to Russia outside the country. It brings together cultural, political and business figures from both countries.
The 2019 Cyprus-Russia Charity Gala will be another significant cultural experience; a unique opportunity to appreciate the spirit of Russia and the hospitality of Cyprus.

Vladimir Spivakov and Moscow Virtuosi, The Turetsky Choir, Pelageya, Yuri Bashmet and Moscow Soloists, Zoe Nicolaidou, Igor Butman Jazz Quartet, Mashina Vremeni, Alkistis Protopsalti, Cyprus Symphony Orchestra, Larisa Dolina, Ljuba Kazarnovskaya, the Lundstrem Jazz Orchestra, Alexandar Rosenbaum, Antonis Remos, Despina Vandi, , Svetlana Zakharova, Ensemble Berezka, ballet ‘Theatrum Vitae’ by Ilya Zhivoy and many more famous artists.
The Cyprus-Russia Gala’s 2019 programme will include performances by a Russian Eurovision star and one of the most popular Russian singers today, Sergey Lazarev, the Bondarenko Brothers: virtuoso accordion duo from the Moscow State Academic Theatre of Nadezhda Babkina, Cypriot acclaimed Dionysos Dance Group and Eurovision star Elena Paparizou.
Olga Balakleets, Founder of the Cyprus-Russia Gala said:
“Established in 2007, the Cyprus-Russia Gala has brought to the island many Russian, Cypriot and Greek stars, well-established artists and groups and discovered and presented new talents who have shared the stage of the Presidential Palace and delighted our audiences. Since 2007, the Cyprus-Russia Gala has supported the Radiomarathon Foundation, which works in aid of children with special needs and their families. Once more, I thank you all for your generosity in purchasing tickets and making donations towards the charity”.
The First Lady of Cyprus, Mrs Andri Anastasiades, said:
“True to our vision for a better future and the values of philanthropy and charity, we recognise our responsibility towards society and the younger generations. The Cyprus-Russia Gala has established itself as one of the most important charity events on the island, providing us with another unique opportunity to reflect and appreciate the strong cultural ties between Cyprus and Russia, and I feel immensely proud that I have placed this event again under my auspices”.
Stanislav V.Osadchiy, the ambassador of the Russian Federation in Cyprus said:
“This event is a vivid example of the long-lasting and strong relationship between Cyprus and Russia, based on mutual trust, friendship and support – both at governmental and private levels”.
The President of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, said:
“This unique event celebrates the strong bonds and the deep-rooted friendship between Cyprus and Russia, but, above all, it significantly supports the mission of the Radiomarathon Foundation, to the benefit of children with special needs and their families.”
The amount of €20,000 and other funds raised through auction sales and donations will be given to Radiomarathon Foundation, which helps children with special needs and their families.
