    Soprano Dilber Yunus will give a concert March 8 along with the Beijing Symphony Orchestra under the baton of conductor Zheng Xiaoying at Beijing's Forbidden City Concert Hall.

    The 60-year-old soprano, a Kashgar native from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, has achieved success overseas, playing Gilda in Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto and Lucia in Gaetano Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor over her three-decade career. She has been permanently signed by the National Opera House of Finland since 1988.
