Aida – Los Angeles 2022

“A cast of stellar singers inhabited the remaining roles. George Gagnidze was a virile and single-minded Amonasro.”

Jane Rosenberg, Seen and Heard International    


“… George Gagnidze’s fiery Amonasro,…”

Truman Wang, Classical Voice 


“And George Gagnidze, who answers the call everywhere for his stalwart father figure Amonasro, more than accomplished the task.”

Donna Perlmutter, LA Tempo


“Tenor Russell Thomas (Radames), Melody Moore (Amneris), Morris Robinson (Ramfis), Peixin Chen (King) and George Gagnidze (Amonasro) all earned enthusiastic appreciation from the audience.”

Julie Riggott, Culture Spot LA  


“Verdi, in the hands of the incomparable James Conlon as conductor and a stellar cast, continues to remind us why Aida remains the quintessential opera we’ve come to love.”

Nabucco – New York 2023

“... the title king’s vulnerable plea for his daughter’s life (sung nobly on Wednesday by George Gagnidze)…” “Elijah Moshinsky’s “Nabucco” production has an old-school, 1980s throwback charm, with its imposing, multiuse unit set that turns on the Met’s revolving stage, even though it arrived at the company in 2001. It harks back to a time when singers were almost solely responsible for delivering the drama, and that’s what Gagnidze did: He shaped Nabucco’s full character arc with his baritone, from the sheeny resonance and dripping venom of a boastful king to the long, stately lines of a penitent one.” Oussama Zahr, The New York Times




Aida – New York 2023

"The size and clarity of George Gagnidze’s voice made for a particularly menacing Amonasro." “George Gagnidze’s menacing Amonasro was powerfully sung.” Rick Perdian, New York Classical Review




Rigoletto – Hamburg 2023

"The cast on March 17, 2023 was top-class in the main roles. George Gagnidze in the title role as Rigoletto was completely absorbed in the characterization of this “court jester”, who is by no means funny here, but rather a person who suffers and a father who only wants to protect his daughter from the outside world and the decadent court society. With his dark, expressive heroic baritone and his powerful performance, he came pretty close to being an ideal for Rigoletto." Wolfgang Schmitt, IOCO
