Anoki von Arx (soprano sfogato) after a dancing career, has devoted herself to opera. Having graduated from the Conservatory in Paris, her voice training has had a lasting impact, from the Cornelius Reid method via Carol Bagott-Forte, Canada. Her voice covers the entire spectrum from high and dramatic soprano to mezzo. For many years her interdisciplinary productions have opened the world of opera to a young public (such as Opera vs. Streetdance). She moved next to regular one-woman-shows and various concerts and opera productions in Cyprus. She performed as soloist with the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra and the Aphrodite Opera Festival Paphos. Anoki was also seen in the Rialto Theatre Limassol as Donna Anna under the conductor Yiorgos Kountouris and recently in "The Man on the Roof". She currently performs throughout Europe.

Milena Romanova (piano) is a graduate of the Specialised Kharkov Musical College and Kharkov Conservatory in Ukraine, and qualified as a piano teacher, accompanist, and chamber ensemble player. She stayed to work at the Conservatory in the Department of solo singing and wind instruments. Milena has extensive experience with various instruments, as well as in solo singing. She is a laureate and diploma laureate of national and international competitions and festivals. Milena has a large number of pupils all over the world. In 2018, she completed an international tour of China with a graduate student Zhan Chi from the Kharkov National University of Arts. She has letters of appreciation, diplomas for high professionalism and the degree of leading accompanist. Milena has a wealth of experience as a soloist, accompanist, and piano teacher.

Agrovino is a village complex comprising of a separate tavern, wine bar and accommodation, each within walking distance, that combines Cypriot hospitality and traditional architecture and cuisine. Mr. Costas was the first resident of the village to set up a business in Lofou, since the village was abandoned in the old days, with the opening of the tavern in 1992. With his passion and hard work, as well as with the help of his large family, he managed in a few years to make the tavern famous both locally and internationally. If you are looking for a landscape with a rich architectural character and history, then Lofou is the perfect destination. Visit www.agrovino-lofou.com for details.
