Hamburg State Opera is opera seria turned buffa

La Clemenza di Tito

Peter Konwitschny's production of La Clemenza di Tito for the Hamburg State Opera is opera seria turned buffa.

La Clemenza di Tito

Mozart: La Clemenza di Tito Hamburg State Opera 2 October 2006 "Nino Surguladze is the star of this production with a fascinating performance as the love struck boy Sesto. A real male in this role could not be more convincing. Surguladze is a surly, loyal, whimsical and juvenile Sesto, the most believable character in the opera, and sung with a warm clarity." http://theoperacritic.com/reviews/ra/2006/hamclemen1006.htm

Betrothal in a Monastery – Glyndebourne

"But the outstanding performance is Nino Surguladze as Clara, who also has Prokofiev's finest music to sing. Her second-half aria, when she is dressed as a nun and lamenting her loveless fate, is the only moment in the whole evening that has a genuine emotional impact." http://www.theguardian.com/music/2006/jul/25/classicalmusicandopera

Eugene Onegin, Royal Opera House, London

"Nino Surguladze's engaging Olga is established early on as a tomboy with irresistible feminine charms. The contralto colour of the voice is beguiling, but as ever it's the belief that sweeps you along on her every word and gesture." http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/reviews/eugene-onegin-royal-opera-house-london-6106089.html

“Nel cast hanno spiccato la Fiordiligi di Annalisa Raspagliosi [...] il Guglielmo di Nicola Ulivieri [...] e la Dorabella di Nino Surguladze, la quale, chiamata a sostituire all’ultimo minuto Annely Peebo, ha fatto un lavoro eccellente: tutti i duetti delle sorelle sono perfetti, a cominciare da “Soave sia il vento, tranquilla sia l’onda” a tutti gli altri, un raro esempio del perfetto controllo di voci bellissime e della capacità di armonia nel canto a due.” Francesco Rapaccioni, Teatro.it http://www.teatro.it/spettacoli/recensioni/cos_fan_tutte_1226

რიგოლეტო, ბარსელონა – Rigoletto, Barcelona Gran Teatre del Liceu

“Bulgarian bass Julian Konstantinov and Georgian mezzo Nino Surguladze almost stole the show as the sinister, ingratiating Sparafucile siblings. Konstantinov really looked and sounded the part (which he has sung from the Met to La Scala), while Surguladze made her Maddalena a younger sister of Carmen. Her participation contributed to a memorable quartet." BARCELONA-Rigoletto-Gran-Teatre-del-Liceu-121304-Opera-News-The-Met-Opera-Guild
