Amonasro in "Aida" at the Paris Opera
Great success for George Gagnidze's Amonasro in Aida at the Paris Opera! Reviews have been enthusiastic about George's "proud and incisive voice" (Concertclassic) combined with an "animal force that no one can resist" (Forum Opéra). Performances in Paris continue until July 12, 2016.
