Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci – New York 2018

“The brooding George Gagnidze sings compactly and well in both operas…”

Zachary Woolfe, NY Times

 

“George Gagnidze’s forthright, robust articulation of Alfio, and Rihab Chaieb’s shimmery-voiced Lola provide the apposite oppositional timbre.”

Xenia Hanusiak, Financial Times

 

“George Gagnidze was an ideal Alfio, with the sort of meaty baritone that can bark out the teamster song without sacrificing tone.”

Eric C. Simpson, New York Classical Review

 

“George Gagnidze was an ideal Alfio, with the sort of meaty baritone that can bark out the teamster song without sacrificing tone.”

Eric C. Simpson, New York Classical Review

 

“In the roles of Alfio and Tonio, George Gagnidze showed a potent baritone, singing with strength. Gagnidze’s grainy timbre works well with these two characters as they both show their ugly nature. It also helped that Gagnidze showed two different sides to each character. If his Alfio was imposing and confident, his Tonio seemed deformed in the way he moved about.”

Francisco Salazar, Operawire

 

“Gagnidze was more in his element as Tonio, suitably grim and menacing and singing with bite…”

Christopher Corwin, Parterre.com

 

“Also in both operas (as Alfio and Tonio) was George Gagnidze, far more impressive than in the past, singing with a shiny baritone which, maybe, could have used more weight but had everything else.”

Robert Levine, Bachtrack

George Gagnidze a Macbeth of “round, harmonically rich vocality” in Bologna

“With Verdi, the Georgian baritone gets along fully: Rigoletto, Nabucco, Miller, Simone are also among his signature roles. He takes on the multifaceted figure of the usurping monarch with a round, harmonically rich vocality, naturally wide-ranged and generous -- at times even almost overflowing -- but well controlled…” Gilberto Mion, Teatro about George Gagnidze's portrayal of Macbeth at the Teatro Comunale of Bologna, April 2024.
