La Traviata – Paris Opera 2018

“It seemed like the role of Germont père was written for the Georgian George Gagnidze. Just like the role requires one could throughoutly enjoy noble Verdi singing after his fierce entrance scene.”

Sieglinde Pfabigan, Der Neue Merker

 

“Already at the beginning of the second act, Kurzak and baritone George Gagnidze, in the role of Giorgio Germont, were heavily acclaimed by the audience with sceams of “Bravi!”… (…)

It was thus the voices that raised the audience at the end of the performance, with reruns until October 26 and again between December 11 and 19, to thank Kurzak, Gagnidze and Jean-François Borras (Alfredo Germont), the sensitivity with which they embodied their characters.”

“This Germont knows how to sing “Di provenza il mar il sol” dolce, and how to convince in his last phrases of remorse.”

Patrice Henriot, Opéra Magazine

 

“George Gagnidze sings a scrupulously nuanced Germont, with a finely modeled cantabile… .”

Didier van Moere, ConcertoNet

 

“George Gagnidze’s Germont is certainly traditional but effective…”

Alain Dualt, Opera Online

 

“To better achieve his goals and convince La Traviata to give up Alfredo, Giorgio George Gagnidze decided here to be immediately enveloping and caressing. He talks with his son using a very appropriate vibrato and his low notes are firmly set, even in the final tear of his remorse.”

Céline Wadoux, Olyrix

 

“George Gagnidze, (…), plays a severe Giorgio Germont, whose tone warms up as the character becomes human, which does not deprive him of being distressing during his duet with his son from the beginning.”

Audrey Bouctot, Forum Opera

 

“Giorgio Germont – George Gagnidze is a baritone who has been rightly acclaimed by the audience.”

Guy Courtheoux, Onsourtupas.fr

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.
