The house of actors is constantly visited by eminent guests - Muslim Magomayev, Aram Khachaturian, Mstislav Rostropovich and many others. Irina's father begins to direct, puts the production in the theater, which enjoy the overwhelming success of the audience.
In the meantime, Ira successfully finishes music school, attends a ballet circle, enjoys modeling clothes.Mama Allegrova continues her brilliant theater career.
At the same time, her daughter showed remarkable vocal abilities, she takes part in the Transcaucasian Jazz Festival, which was held in Baku, and takes the second place. The girl dreams of a singer's career, but the disease interferes with her plans.
She does not enter the conservatory. Her beautiful voice timbre is noticed by the organizers of the festival of Indian cinema. Ira is invited to voice films at this event. Six months later, Allegrova, whose biography is oversaturated with events, is leaving on tour with the Song Theater under the direction of Rashid Beybutov. And next year Irina starts working in the Yerevan orchestra.
Unhappy love and first marriage
For the first time Irina is getting married as an eighteen-year-old girl. And by the confession of the singer herself, being a temperamental and quick-tempered girl, she decided to marry her first boyfriend in revenge, who did not feel passionate about her. The girl meets with basketball player Georgy Tairov, the couple decides to enter into legal marriage.

Irina prefers not to meet with the father of the child, the couple draws up a divorce. Six months after the birth of the baby, the singer decides that it is time to move on and conquer Moscow.
Forward, conquer the capital!
Despite the fact that the husbands of Allegrova did not bring her the long-awaited female happiness, she considers herself the darling of fate. After all, fate gave her a beautiful daughter and loving parents. If it were not for the selfless support of the latter, Irina would have been difficult to realize her dream.
Allegroma's mom in the prime of her creative career leaves the Operetta Theater to raise a little granddaughter. Ira leaves for Moscow, here she faces serious challenges - lack of money, searching for work and housing not only did not break the singer, but also seriously tempered her character.
The path to the Olympus of the national stage is difficult and thorny. For some time, the young actress worked in Moscow clubs and cabarets. In one of the metropolitan restaurants, she met her second husband.
Irina Allegrova and Vladimir Blekher
The next betrothed singer noticed her during one of the performances in a Moscow restaurant.Volodya Bleher was the artistic director of the ensemble Young Voices. He invited a pretty and very talented girl to his team. Ira accepted the invitation without hesitation.
And the new leader surrounded the soloist with the attention and care that the young actress lacked so much. Vladimir beautifully courted, was a romantic. Offer Irina he made during a walk on the boat. This time the celebration was modest, it was attended by the closest relatives, it happened in 1978.
Five years this marriage lasted. In 1984, Blecher was shown an article accusing him of currency fraud. The recognition of this fact could put an end to the career of Irina, she left her husband and broke his heart.
Only when Allegrova turned 61, she decided to improve relations with her ex-husband. Irina Allegrova's concert, dedicated to her birthday, she started with going on stage with Bleher. The public diva presented him as a talented composer, who wrote the song “Flooding” for her, that she was her second spouse, “the hijacker of the Russian pop music” kept silent.
This is always the unpredictable Allegrova, whose biography contains many more non-standard actions. Only sometimes it opens the veil of secrecy, which is shrouded in the personal life of a star.The husbands of Allegrova, as the singer herself admitted, were good heroes, only none of them overcame the six-year barrier of living together.
Creative takeoff southern beauty
In 1979, "Young Voices" have already broken up. Irina was a soloist of the Fakel ensemble, whose leader was Bleher, she toured extensively in the country. But the constant race for the "grateful" audience exhausted the singer. She even thought about leaving the stage.

They immediately become hits, but the producer of "Electroclub" against such a repertoire of his soloist. The rock band for some time, like its new husband, inspired Irina, but already in 1990 she set off on a solo voyage, leaving behind not only rock, but also Vladimir.
