Oksana petrusenko (1900-1940) Opera and chamber singer

Petrusenko was born into a family of poor peasants in the city of Balaklia (Kharkiv region). Soon her father died and mother came back to Sevastopol to her relatives. The talented siriger spent her childhood and youth there. At first little Oksana went to a church parish school, then to a gymnasium, which she left at the age of 14 because of severe hardships. She earned her living working at a shoe factory, and in the port. In 1917, she took an active part in an amateur drama society; mastered complicated vocal parts. In spring 1918, Oksana Petrusenko as a member of the S.Hlazurenko's Ukrainian company moved to Kherson. There she met a prominent Ukrainian author, P. Saksahansky, whom she called "godfather in art", "a tireless teacher." She gained experience working in different musical drama companies. The singer's opera debut was in Kazan – in 1927 and since 1934 she had been a soloist of the Kyiv Opera and Ballet Theatre.

Oksana Petrusenko is a unique phenomenon of Ukrainian opera and drama theatre of the 20th century. Nature endowed the singer with an exceptional talent – a remarkable Voice with boundless sounding, rich, grand and clear as a tear, sparkling with warm and, beaming colours.

During 22 years of her creative work Oksana Petrusenko created a gallery of unsurpassed stage-portraits: Tetiana, Liza, Oksana (Eugene Onegin; Queen of Spades; Shoes by Tchaikovsky), Marfa (Tsar’s Bride by N.Rymsky-Korsakov), Aida and Tosca in the operas of the same name by G.Verdi and G.Puccini, Nedda {Pagliaciby R.Leoncavallo). The part of Aida became a masterpiece of her creative work. This image was very close to the singer, she often confessed: "The feelings thrilling through Aida's heart as if reside in me."

Oksana Petrusenko's solos in operas and music drama works of Ukrainian composers and writers – M.Lysenko, S.Hulak-Artemovsky, M.Arkas, M.Kropyvnytsky, M.Starytsky, have become unforgettable. Ukrainian folk songs and romances performed by the singer were remarkable for their truthfulness, sincerity and emotionality. She became People's Artist of Ukraine in 1939. According to Z.Haiday: "She was a truly people's singer. I don't know any other singer whom the title of "a pedple's artist" would fit better. The whole nation loved her."
