Hibla Gerzmava will make her Canadian debut this June, as a special guest when Show One Productions presents her in concert with the Moscow Virtuosi and its famed founder/conductor Vladimir Spivakov at Roy Thomson Hall.

Gerzmava, who has become an important star in the opera world will perform arias from Bellini’s “Norma,” Verdi’s “I Masnadieri” and Cilea’s “Adriana Lecouvreur.”

According to a press release Show One producer Svetlana Dvoretsky is eagerly awaiting the return of the Moscow Virtuosi.  “The orchestra and Spivakov come back here every couple of years,” she said, “always to a sold-out hall, with a fresh, new program that brings the audience to its feet!  And they have introduced us to dazzling guest artists!”

The program will also feature 14-year-old Israeli cello prodigy, Danielle Akta, in her Canadian debut. She will perform Bruch’s “Kol Nidrei.

Gerzmava has been recognized for her vocal qualities since 1994 when she became the first singer and the only woman ever to earn the rarely-awarded Grand Prize in the International Tchaikovsky Competition. Since then she has performed in the leading houses in the world and recently appeared in Verdi’s “La Traviata” at the Bolshoi Theatre, Donizetti’s “Anna Bolena” at La Scala and “Lucia di Lammermoor.”

Gerzmava’s debut is scheduled for Thursday, June 8, 2017, at 8 p.m.
