Get to Anita Rachvelishvili:


Anita Rachvelishvili is recognized internationally as one of the leading artists of our day. Her career was launched in a spectacular overnight coup de théâtre in 2009, when Daniel Barenboim invited her to open the La Scala season as the title role in a much-publicized new production of Carmen, with Jonas Kaufmann as Don José. This performance marked her debut in the role and was televised all over the world. Rachvelishvili rapidly began making a number of international debuts in this role: at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Berlin State Opera, Seattle Opera, San Francisco Opera, Teatro Regio in Turin, Canadian Opera Company, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Semperoper Dresden, Teatro dell’Opera in Rome, and Arena di Verona. She has also been acclaimed at the Paris Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Royal Opera House – Covent Garden, Vienna State Opera, and many other important houses. An exclusive Sony Classical artist, Rachvelishvili’s debut solo album was released in 2018 to great critical acclaim, and she was featured in a 2019 New York Times article titled "A Young Singer Takes the Opera World by Storm".

Release Date: 03/02/2018

For her highly anticipated first album on Sony Classical she joins forces with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI and the dynamic conductor Giacomo Sagripanti, winner of the Young Conductor prize at the 2016 International Opera Awards. The programme naturally includes two arias – the seductive ‘Habanera’ and ‘Seguidilla’ – from what has become her signature role. The selection goes on to reflect her broad dramatic and dramatic range, and personal history. It includes Lyubasha’s haunting a cappella song from Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar’s Bride, an opera in which she subsequently sang under Daniel Barenboim at Berlin’s Staatsoper.
