Faithful to her commitment to defend the musical culture of her country, Rachvelishvili will begin the evening with ‘The Sun has Faded’, by her compatriot Otar Taktakishvili, to enter fully into the great names of the Russian repertoire, with lyrical pieces by Piotr Tchaikovsky and Sergei Rakhmaninov.

Les Arts, in its commitment to diversify audiences and address all forms of musical expression in this section of the programme brings together the most recognized stars of the international circuit.
The next appointments for ‘Les Arts és Lied’ include performances by baritone Christian Gerhaher (February 12th), one of the leading authorities on this musical form, the acclaimed soprano Sonia Yoncheva (April 25th) and René Pape (May 16th), considered by critics to be the best of his generation.
The Georgian ‘mezzo-soprano’ Anita Rachvelishvili is one of the most recognized singers of today. She began her international career in 1999 with her debut in ‘Carmen’ at La Scala with Jonas Kaufmann, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim, following her time at the prestigious academy of the Milanese coliseum.
It did not take long to reincarnate the emblematic role in theaters such as the Metropolitan, Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Staatsoper Munich and Berlin, the operas of Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Dresden and Rome or the Arena in Verona.
It has also been acclaimed at the Paris Opera, the Covent Garden and the Vienna Staatsoper, among other temples of the lyric. Her first album, which includes a selection of famous arias for ‘mezzo-soprano’, has received formidable praise from critics.
