This Russian soprano, who is one of the most sought-after performers of Rossini in the world, is a regular on major international stages and is invited back every year to the Pesaro Festival held in the composer’s native town. Although her 2015-16 season will feature Verdi (she will play the role of Gilda in five different productions), she has saved Rossini for her Paris recital. Rippling adagios, glittering vocalise passages, frenzied rhythms and flawless style are the trademark of this St Petersburg soprano, who started her singing career in the chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre before completing her musical education in Berlin and Aix-en-Provence. On one occasion when she met her idol Joan Sutherland, she was told: "Don’t indulge in too many variations! Think about what you are singing and the emotion!” Olga Peretyatko made this her mantra and pays as much attention to embodying her heroines as she does to vocal pyrotechnics.
For this recital, she will tackle the coquettish, temperamental and seductive heroines of Le Voyage à Reims and Le Turc en Italie, as well as the moving Amenaïde from Tancrède, the mythical Queen of Babylon in Semiramide and brave Matilda di Shabran. This latter opera features the words “women are made to conquer and reign” and Olga Peretyatko certainly proves this.
