Galina Gorchakova


Galina Gorchakova  

The virtuoso Russian soprano Galina Gorchakova began her career with the Lunacharski Opera and Ballet Theatre in Sverdolvsk. In 1990 she joined the Mariinski Theatre (formerly the Kirov Opera) where the power, brilliance and versatility of her coloratura singing and the physicality and dramatic intensity of her acting quickly brought her international fame.

In particular, it was with the very contrasting roles of Renata, the title part in Prokofiev's Fiery Angel, and Tatyana in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin that Galina Gorchakova first received worldwide acclaim. Since then she has also been especially acclaimed for her interpretations of Lisa in Tchaikovsky’s Pique Dame, Yaroslavna in Borodin's Prince Igor, Leonora in Verdi's Il trovatore, Volkhova in Rimsky-Korsakov's Sadko, Iolanta in Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, Tosca in Puccini's Tosca, and Leonora in Verdi's La forza del destino.

Galina Gorchakova's great reserves of vocal power, outstanding musicianship, and vivid acting have made her a highly sought after artist at the world's top opera houses, including the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Vienna State Opera, La Scala Milan, and the Bastille Opera in Paris. She has performed and recorded with top international conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Bernard Haitink, Neemi Jarvi and Seiji Ozawa.

Galina Gorchakova also has a wide recital repertoire, which she has taken across Europe and America to highly enthusiastic receptions. She has recently given recitals at the Wigmore Hall in London, the Edinburgh Festival, the Lincoln Center in New York, San Francisco, Vienna, and Milan (at La Scala).

Amongst her many recordings, Galina Gorchakova has received particularly high praise for her audio and video recordings of her roles in Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, Prokofiev's The Fiery Angel and Borodin's Prince Igor, her audio recordings of roles in Rimsky-Korsakov's The Maid of Pskov, Verdi's La forza del destino, Tchaikovsky's Mazeppa, Verdi's Don Carlos and Puccini's Tosca, and her recording of Russian songs accompanied by Larissa Gergieva.

In 1998 Galina Gorchakova was awarded the Baltica Prize of St Petersburg for her outstanding achievements in the world of Opera.
