BARONESS VON ORBAH KRISTINA ORBAKAYTE
Society does not always respond positively to the children of famous parents, and especially when they try to repeat their path on the stage. And still firmly in the mind saying that on such children “nature rests.” Christina Orbakayte was in show business for a long time just as Alla Pugacheva’s daughter, but then everyone saw that she herself is a creative person and is not going to imitate a famous mother.
Little actress Christina Orbakaite
She was born on May 25, 1971. From the first minutes of life around the girl were creative, highly talented people. Dad worked as a circus performer. From Mykolas Edmundas Orbakas, the daughter inherited the plasticity of movements and artistry. Mom sang, actively toured and recorded. From her, Kristine transmitted a musical ear and a desire to sing. Although she decided not to become a singer right away.

Since childhood, Christina was quite a busy child: she studied in an English special school, studied music and classical ballet, which she herself insisted on after reviewing all the performances of the Bolshoi Theater. The girl discovered congenital plasticity, but Christina studied at school for only a year and decided that ballet was not for her. The acquired knowledge and skills later came in handy for working in Alla Pugacheva’s ballet “Recital”, and then were touring with the famous “Todes”.
The seven-year-old Kristina made her debut on television in the program “Merry Notes”, in which the song “The Sun Laughs” was sung. The next performance happened in 1982 in the “Morning Post” program. The young actress went on stage with the song “Let them talk.” She was subsequently recorded on a record.
Nevertheless, the future pop star began to win the love of the audience not by singing songs, but by playing movies. In 1983, Rolan Bykov decided to make a film “Effigy” and was looking for heroes for a picture among Moscow schoolchildren. In one of the streams was Christina Orbakaite.

They say that Bykov at that time did not know whose daughter she was. At first glance, the director did not like the girl, but then he remembered Christine, and she was approved for the main role. After the release of the film, the young actress could compete in popularity with her famous mother. Professionals have recognized Orbakaite congenital acting skills: for her role in the movie “Effigy” Christina won a prize at the festival of European films in France.
Through hardship to the stars
In the mid-1990s, Christina Orbakaite decided to sing. The timid attempts at my mother’s “Christmas meetings,” many have caused condescending smiles. As it turned out later, it was in vain. Perhaps the daughter did not inherit from Pugacheva’s voice, but took a lot from Alla Borisovna’s strong character. Christina took vocal and choreography lessons, did not spare money for clips and was rewarded for hard work: they began to take her seriously. The singer Kristina Orbakayteodin from the brightest clips of that time – “Call Me” (directed by F. Bondarchuk) came out on TV screens, and Christina’s debut album “Loyalty” went on sale. Behind him were released: “0 hours 0 minutes”, “You”, “May”, as well as collections: “To the woman who …”, “The best” and others.
Kristina spent most of her time on stage, but she also managed to act in films: one after another, she followed roles in the films “Vivat, midshipmen!”, “Midshipmen-3”, “Limit”. Another passion was the theater. After studying at the faculty of the Russian Academy of Theatrical Arts, she played in the play “Monday after the Miracle”, after which she received an award from the Ministry of Culture of Russia for the best female role. And then a role was played in the performance of the Yermolova Theater “Young Lady-Peasant”.
Christina Orbakayte’s light of love
singer Kristina Orbakaytes Vladimir Presnyakov
Christine did not grow up a spoiled, “star” child. She was quite modest, secretive and a bit closed. By the age of twelve, the girl had fallen in love with the composer and singer Igor Nikolayev. Pugacheva, in an interview, admitted that she did not know how to reason with her daughter. The wise Alla Borisovna found a way out by inviting Igor and his daughter Yulia to visit. Christine saw that this man has been busy for a long time. She cried and humbled herself. The real first love of Orbakaite was Volodya Presnyakov. A few years older, he was already a bright star and easily collected sports palaces. Presnyakov Jr. worked with Alla Pugacheva at the Theater of Song, participated in TV programs, while remaining a touching young man with no signs of star disease.
