Hibla Gerzmava To Make Her Chicago Debut

Cherry Orchard Festival

Hibla Gerzmava will make her Chicago Debut in a one-night event.

The Russian soprano will join Maestro Vladimir Spivakov and the acclaimed Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra on June 4, 2017, at Orchestra Hall at Chicago’s Symphony Center.

This performance will be part of MVCO’s 2017 North American Tour which is being presented by the Cherry Orchard Festival Foundation.

Germava will showcase her talents in “Casta Diva” from Bellini’s “Norma,” “Stretto of Amalia” from Verdi’s “I Masnadieri,” “Ecco…Io son l’umile ancella” from Cilea’s “Adriana Lecouvreur,” Polenc’s “Les Chemins de l’amour,” and DeCurtis’ “Ti voglio tanto bene.”

The program will include Mozart’s Divertimento No.1 in D major,  Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony in C minor. Afterward, 14-year old cellist Danielle Akta will then join the orchestra for Bruch’s “Kol Nidrei” and Popper’s “Concert Polonaise.” The concert will conclude with Grieg’s “Two Elegiac Melodies” and Gulda’s “Hymne À La Beauté.”

Gerzmava has rapidly become one of the most in-demand sopranos in the world as she has performed in a sold-out debut recital at Carnegie Hall and has made her mark at the Metropolitan Opera in the role of Antonia in  Offenbach’s “The Tales of Hoffmann,” Liù in Puccini’s “Turandot” and Desdemona in Verdi’s “Otello.”
