Two popular Russian singers will perform at River Rock Casino Resort next Tuesday.

Married stars Anjelika Varum and Leonid Agutin will be on stage Jan. 29 for an evening concert.

This will be their third trip to Metro Vancouver, according to organizer Lev Popok, who noted two weeks later the singers will perform a concert at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow to mark Valentine's Day.

The pair have a long history in music. Varum is the daughter of a noted composer and received a first-class musical education. According to her biography, Varum had her eye on an acting career, but the stage pulled her into a singing career.

Today she's not only a singer, but also an actor noted for roles on TV, film and theatre.

Agutin is a graduate of the Moscow Jazz School. He studied at the State University of Culture, winning numerous competitions. Today he's a well-known musician and composer in Russia who also regularly tours the United States.

Tickets to the 8 p.m. show, $65 to $95, at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.
