“Anna Gorbachyova’s vocal abilities are unique”

It is difficult to find in the history of opera a part as wonderful as Cleopatra. Anna Gorbachyova was born to sing this role. She was able to express the complexity of the character through her voice. Each aria required the singer to express all the colours and emotions that her character experienced at that moment. And it’s not about simple emotions like joy or anger but about rather more subtle states: power, mockery, lust, unshakeable faith, rebellion … Gorbachyova’s vocal abilities are unique. Her virtuosity, or more precisely the boldness and very pure intonation of her voice made a great impression on me.

…in this role [Cleopatra] was the amazing Anna Gorbachyova, a world class singer who graduated from the Royal Academy of Music.

“Radiant voice of Anna Gorbachyova… impeccable line of singing… and absolute investment in the drama”

Comme Dieter Kaegi est aussi le directeur de la maison, on lui doit, en outre, d’avoir veillé à l’essentiel : une excellente distribution, dominée par la voix rayonnante d’Anna Gorbachyova dans le rôle-titre. Formée à Londres, la soprano russe gravit, depuis huit ans, la côte ascendante d’une carrière internationale, ligne de chant impeccable et investissement dramatique absolu.

Opéra Magazine / April 2018

Anna Gorbachyova ist eine Iolanta von Königsgnaden. Ihr dunkel schwebender Sopran scheint aus einer anderen Welt zu kommen. Tief schwingt ihr Organ im Brust- ton und setzt klare Akzente im Forte. Ihre Darstellung einer Blinden, die zur Sehenden wird, berührt tief.

Berner ZeitungFebruar, 12 / 2018

Anna Gorbachyova brilliert mit mädchenhafter Fragilität und mitreissendem Spiel. Ihr höhensicherer Sopran mit der klangvollen Mittellage kennt keine Schwierigkeiten. So wird die Szene, in der sie sich wünscht, das Licht, die Sonne und den Himmel zu sehen, zum vokalen Höhepunkt. Hier wächst die Sängerin über sich hinaus.

Anna Gorbachyowa schafft das Kunststück, diese Märchen- gestalt äusserst glaubhaft darzustellen – und stimmlich meistert sie die Partie bravourös.

NZZ am Sonntag / 18.02.2018

Anna Gorbachyova has a creamy powerfulvoice with a wide range and well supported high notes. In her first scene arioso, «Otchego eto prezhde ne znala», she convincingly conveys her sadness and feeling of something missing. Often sung by sopranos with a heavier voice, the role benefited from the casting of a lighter, higher voice, to suit the innocence of the character.

Queen Cleopatra … was wearing a shimmering dressed of burnished gold in which she looked so sensual that one could not take one’s eyes off her as she crossed the stage with a firm, regal step. It was hard to control one’s emotions when she sang with such deep, wide-ranging feeling and charmed the audience with the beauty of her voice and presence.
