MR. GRIGORY SOLOVIOV
will open the Chicago Opera Theater 2012-2013 Season as Sarastro in The Magic Flute
on September 15th. The Russian Bass, who at 32, has appeared at ranking theaters globally to great acclaim, returns to the challenging role of Sarastro after a six year hiatus. As Grigory is known for his rapid fire pyrotechnics and dark majestic tone, Chicago audiences can expect four performances of sensational vocal artistry.
Russian Basso Grigory Soloviov has become globally recognised for owning one of the most ethereal Cantante vocal instruments of a singular and rare beauty. His elegant 6' 3" stature lends a riveting presence on the stage of any theatre underscoring the unique attributes which have made him a defining artist for his generation. Mr. Soloviov moves easily within the corridors of many periods, from the ornate Baroque period, to the florid Bel Canto, the Romantic period, through to the austere Verismo. Regarded for his accomplished Händelian style, he is equally lauded for his work of other great composers including Rossini, Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky.Mr. Soloviov has appeared on stages which among others include: the Metropolitan Opera, Gran Teatro La Fenice, the Washington National Opera, Bolshoi Academic State Theatre, Opéra de Monte-Carlo, Opéra National de Lyon, Opéra De Montréal, the Palm Beach Opera, the Connecticut Grand Opera, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, the New Opera Festival di Roma, and the Opera Ischia Festival.
