Today, Dinara Aliyeva is rightfully considered the face of the Bolshoi Theater. The owner of a beautiful soprano is very demanding of the venues on which she performs. Aliyev considers it possible to participate in the production only when she is sure of its quality.
Dinara was born on December 17, 1980 in Baku in a musical family. This fact predetermined her future fate. Dinara Manafov's grandmother and grandfather Galina Ivanovna and Kazim Abasovich performed solo in the ensemble “Songs and Dances of Dagestan”.

Dinara came to vocal classes at the age of 13, and it was an optional training. The main lessons were piano lessons - it is in this direction that she will receive a diploma of graduating from a music school. After graduation, Alieva did not feel much confidence in her abilities (which is the "merit" of her first vocal teacher, who called Dinara weak-willed). She believed that as a vocalist she was something in between and would not be able to reach special heights. Nevertheless, she chose the vocal department for training at the Baku Academy of Music.
Dinara was educated by leading Azerbaijani teachers. But she considers the meeting with M. Caballe, which she happened to see during her studies in the magistracy, to be fateful for herself.

Her repertoire included parts from Troubadour, La Traviata, La Bohème, etc. She began to travel abroad, and then took part in the competition. M. Callas in Greece. The audience applauded for the second prize Dinara for about twenty minutes. The public did not agree with the opinion of the jury, and Dinara is still especially warmly received in Greece and is considered “the second Maria Callas”.

It is impossible to list everything, but, despite her popularity, she is always glad to perform at home. Quite often, residents of Baku see their countrywoman on the stage of their theater, sometimes in the company of world stars.

The singer notes that in Russia now the attitude towards such events has changed noticeably, opera music is more and more capturing the public.
