Tosca – Napoli 2022

“a convincing George Gagnidze as Scarpia”

“…the more than convincing interpretation of Georgian baritone George Gagnidze, with a dark-hued timbre and a voice always soaring across the orchestra.”

Dario Ascoli, Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno 

 

“Remarkable vocal means, imposing stage presence…”

Sandro Compagnone, La Repubblica 

 

“Gagnidze interprets a Scarpia successfully present in the Act I finale, (…) disciplined and with a pleasant legato.”

Stefano Valanzuolo, Il Mattino 

 

“George Gagnidze, Scarpia, is very convincing, very noble in his phrasing, far from any vulgarity that “tradition” has imposed over the years. His voice runs secure over a flawless ligne du chant and his acting is self-restrained, albeit within in its mandatory imperiousness.”

Teresa Mori, Roma 

 

“…the Georgian baritone, with his powerful and limpid voice, perfectly manages to keep a balance between the slimy vulgarity of the “bigot satyr” and the icy determination of the chief of the papal police.”

Fabio Larovere, Connessi all’Opera
