Zhanna Alkhazova

Soprano Zhanna Alkhazova’s voice has been described as “masterful” and “effortless…with an exquisite ease.” Praised by Opera News for her “bright, sword-flashing sound” she will open her 2021-2022 season with a return engagement as a featured artist with the Metropolitan Opera Guild in the Puccini Showcase. Ms. Alkhazova will then make her Connecticut Opera debut as NEDDA in I Pagliacci. Other engagements this season include her debut with First Coast Opera as a featured artist in their Golden Age of Opera concert series and a performance a featured artist in an Opera & Orchestra: Season Finale concert under the baton of Maestro Joseph Ness. In the 2019-2020 season, Ms. Alkhazova appeared as ELIZABETH in a concert performance of Don Carlos. She made her MET Opera Guild debut in the Vocal Showcase performed at Lincoln Center.

The 2017-2018 season saw Ms. Alkhazova make her Sarasota Opera debut in the title role of MANON LESCAUT, when she stepped in for an ailing colleague. Of her performance in the title role as MANON LESCAUT with Regina Opera, James Jorden of the NY Observer wrote that she “flaunted a cool, silvery soprano with a high C whose poise Anna Netrebko might envy. What’s more, she made the unlikely “love at first sight” plot point in the first act utterly believable with the sort of beguiling flashing glances one reads about but seldom sees outside of an Ava Gardner film.” Earlier in the season Ms. Alkhazova made her Geneva Opera debut in the role of DONNA ELVIRA in Don Giovanni and she debuted as TAMARA in Rubinstein’s The Demon with Commonwealth Lyric Opera. She closed the season with another role debut with NJ Verismo Opera under the baton of Lucy Arner, where she appears in the title role of TURANDOT.
