The young Abkhazian-Russian soprano Hibla Gerzmava makes a concert appearance on Sunday 31 May 2015 at Opera Holland Park. Accompanied by pianist Ekaterina Ganelina, Hibla Gerzmava will present The Best of Italian and Russian music and be performing a selection of Russian and Italian operatic arias. She has appeared at Covent Garden as Mimi and Donna Anna, but in fact our most recent sighting of her was on the HD broadcast of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann from the Met (see my review). The auditorium at Holland Park can be a tricky acoustic, so it will be interesting to hear how a song recital comes over.

The concert is dedicated to the Russian diva Elena Obraztsova, and part of the proceeds from this concert will be donated to Elena Obraztsova’s charitable foundation. Tickets are available from the Opera Holland Park website.
