From Irina Bogacheva’s interview: / by Dmitri Akerman

"..or Rita Gritskova who is a great talent and a beautiful woman, natural Carmencita! She also won the second prize here, and immediately after that - the first prize at the international competition in Spain. Immediately she was invited to the Weimar Theatre in Germany, and now she works at the Vienna Opera." (Irina Bogacheva)
