Koerner Hall Recital Debut
Abkhazian soprano Hibla Gerzmava stunned Toronto critics and the audience when, in 2017, she made her first Canadian appearance with the Moscow Virtuosi and Maestro Vladimir Spivakov.
Highly acclaimed for such leading roles as Leonora in La forza del destino, Desdemona in Otello, Liù in Turandot, and the title roles of Anna Bolena and Aida, she regularly appears at La Scala, Covent Garden, the Mariinsky Theatre, Opéra national de Paris, the Metropolitan Opera, and opera houses in Vienna, Rome and Madrid, among others.
Hibla Gerzmava appears as part of her world recital tour, in which Toronto is the only Canadian stop — immediately following Carnegie Hall.
“Dark-hued spinto, beautiful, smooth and rich … and her stage presence is larger than life … The audience absolutely adored her.” (Joseph So, Musical Toronto)
“… Power, dexterity and dramatic fervour … Her voice floated over the top A flat with the poetic splendour of a nightingale.” (David Richards, Toronto Concert Reviews)
For her Toronto recital debut, Ms. Gerzmava serenades her audience with Russian romances, arias from Anna Bolena, La forza del destino and Norma, and more.
