The Best of Italian and Russian Music

Sunday, 31 May, 2015 7:30PM

A concert dedicated to the legendary Russian opera diva Elena Obraztsova.
Part of the proceeds from this concert will be donated to Elena Obraztsova’s charitable foundation.

The evening is accompanied by Ekaterina Ganelina, Hibla Gerzmava’s regular pianist, and will feature the best of Russian and Italian Opera repertoire. Hibla Gerzmava is one of the most sought-after opera stars in the world, and one of the few Russian singers who can truly be called an ‘opera diva’. Hibla Gerzmava is a unique phenomenon on the Russian opera stage. Bright and direct, emotional and passionate, she performs leading female roles in a wide repertoire of celebrated operas. Hibla Gerzmava is soloist at the Moscow Academic Music Theatre of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko, and a guest soloist at leading opera houses worldwide – including the Mariinsky Theatre, London’s Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, and opera houses in Vienna, Paris and Rome. She won the Grand Prix at the Tchaikovsky International Competition, the first and only time in the competition’s history that the highest prize has been awarded to a vocalist.
