A concert dedicated to Elena Obraztsova
Part of the proceeds from this gala concert will be donated to Elena Obraztsova’s charitable foundation
On the 31 of May there will be a charity gala concert ‘The Best of Russian and Italian opera’ with Hibla Gerzmava at Holland Park in London – for many years the setting of the renowned Holland Park opera festival. The evening will be 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’. A National Artist of both the Russian Federation and the Republic of Abkhazia, 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. She is also an amazingly talented actress, enhancing the insights of production directors with her own deep and intuitive understanding of character. 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. Hibla Gerzmava 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. She has performed with such outstanding musicians and conductors as Lorin Maazel, Antonio Pappano, Marco Armilyato, Adam Fischer, Irzhe Bělohlávek, Vladimir Spivakov, Valery Gergiev, Alexander Rudin, Mikhail Pletnev, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Basil Sinai, and many others. In February 2014 she took part in the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, performing the final song ‘Olympic Waltz’, accompanied by the Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Valery Gergiev.
