    Some hidden words

    I am trying to translate an ad of a restorant which presents a special program for International Women's Day. It says that in days 7th and 8th March it will offer a pleasant atmosphere and that a special menu is waiting for the clients: borshch, little breads with caviar, and bla, bla bla. Then it says: вас очирул исполнители традиционных русских романсов. What is in bold and italic is what I can't understand. What can it be? Thanks.

    Re: Some hidden words

    Are you sure that it was "вас очирул"

    Was the ad a sign or an audio?
    Maybe the words were "вас очаруют" - "you will be charmed with/by" (if the ad was written)?

    If you have a photo or audio of the ad, could you please show it or give the link?
    Please correct any mistake you see in my message. Thank you in advance!
    Очень прошу исправлять любые мои ошибки (и на русском тоже). Заранее спасибо!

    Where is the stress?
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Eureka!

    Finally I found it: It is from очарóвывать - очáровать. You'll be delighted with...
    I see that I have found it at the same time that Lae. Perhaps the cases of the words connected are wrong, but the verb is this.
    Thank you.

    It's not очáровать. The verb is очаровать.
