Every year Elīna Garanča and Karel Mark Chichon invite the greatest talents of the world of opera to sing with them as their guests at the open air concerts. For some of these guests, such as Valentina Nafonita, Bryan Hymel, Angel Joy Blue or Joyce El-Khoury these guest appearances were followed by formative steps in their singing careers. During „Classic in the Alps“ the audience experiences in addition to the extraordinary voice and star presence of Elīna Garanča herself , formative moments in the career paths of rising opera stars.
