This evening at Opernhaus Zürich, Georgian tenor Otar Jorjikia will be stepping in last minute to replace an indisposed colleague as Gustavo III in David Pountney’s production of Un ballo in maschera. The stellar cast includes Sondra Radvanovsky as Amelia and George Patean as Renato, conducted by Maestro Fabio Luisi.
Acclaimed first prize winner of the 2016 Galina Vishnevskaya International Opera Singers Competition, Otar is in increasingly high demand; currently a member of the International Opera Studio at Opernhaus Zürich, the 2017/18 season sees performances with Lithuanian National Opera as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème and Alfredo in Verdi’s La traviata, in addition to returning to the Mariinsky Theatre.
Un ballo in maschera runs from 7 to 24 June 2017. For more information, see the Opernhaus Zürich website.
