La Gioconda – Deutsche Oper Berlin 2018

“… eine ganz große Sängershow mit jeder Menge zündenden Nummern. Für die jetzt genau die richtigen Riesenstimmen versammelt sind: Hui He und Daniela Barcellona liefern sich ebenso packende Vokalduelle wie Alfred Kim und George Gagnidze.”

Frederik Hanssen, Tagesspiegel


“Dem Verführer und Spion Barnaba (schwarzes Wams, Spitzenkragen) leiht George Gagnidze seinen kantigen Bariton. Gagnidze ist mit herrischer Ausstrahlung präsent.”

Konzert Opernkritik Berlin


“Den richtigen Brunnenvergifterbariton hat George Gagnidze für den Intriganten Barnaba… . … die Stimme [ist] durchschlagskräftig und größte Räume füllend.

“Dem bösartigen Verführer Barnaba (schwarzes Wams, Spitzenkragen) leiht Bariton George Gagnidze eine herrische Ausstrahlung.”

Opernkritik Berlin


“George Gagnidze sang einen wunderbar fiesen Barnaba… .”

Excellent reviews for George Gagnidze's Rigoletto at the Atlanta Opera:




EarRelevant feature: ‘Acclaimed baritone George Gagnidze reflects on “Rigoletto” ahead of Atlanta Opera debut’

George Gagnidze was interviewed by Melinda Bargreen ahead of his Atlanta Opera debut in the title role of "Rigoletto". Check out the feature on the following link:




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
