Macbeth – Valencia 2022

“An interesting voice with a beautiful timbre… at the end of the banquet scene, he soared above those in the pit and on stage. He grew a lot in the tremendous duo with his wife, who gave him an appropriate reply and where he was met with an extremely intense orchestra. He is without a doubt a bel-canto singer who reached the peak of his performance in the aria “Pietà, rispetto, amore”, in a display of legato singing and intentional phrasing.”
Antonio Gascó, Codalario

“…The Georgean George Gagnidze. The truth is that the Tiflis born singer has a full-bodied, robust voice in his high register…”
Francisco Bueno Camejo, Valencia News

“… the Georgian baritone showed a correct and cultivated voice. And yes, in his interpretation of the difficult character, he put a point of hallucination…. .”
Enrique Herreras, Cartelera Turia

“George Gagnidze and Anna Pirozzi provide great opera at the sold-out Palau in Valencia”
The interpreters of the leading roles must be able to show off powerfully across choirs in large ensembles, to sing Belkantesque ornaments and, in chamber music moments, to intone, breathe and whisper expressive pianissimi, completely lost in themselves.
Both the full-blooded Italian Anna Pirozzi and George Gagnidze can do that. (…) He is a master, who characterizes with the finest details the weak general and later King, plagued by remorse and hallucinations.”
Dr. Ingobert Waltenberger, Der Neue Merker

“… he crowned, with ‘Pietá, rispetto, onore’, a performance that deserved the enthusiastic applause of the audience.”
Federigo Figueroa, ProÓpera
