ZOYA GRAMAGIN, Soprano
Zoya Gramagin at Carnegie Hall, December 2019:
“Making an appearance with the Habanera from Bizet’s “Carmen” was soprano Zoya Gramagin; her voice carried a sultry texture through her medium to lower range, at times rising with a bright sensuality. Supported by her confident bearing and the crisp chords from Serebriannikov, Gramagin delivered a solid rendition of this famous song.” – Logan Martell, Operawire
“Zoya Gramagin made a spectacular Carmen, singing Bizet’s seductive “Habanera” with conviction as well as interestingly textured tone. We thought of her as a falcon, which is what the French call a darkly colored dramatic soprano. Whatever you call her voice, it was a pleasure to hear, well-centered and even from the lower register to the top.” – Voce di Meche
“Soprano Zoya Gramagin as Cio Cio San, meets the demands of the role wonderfully. Her opening night performance of “Un Bel Di Vedremo (One Good Day We Will See)”, the opera’s most famous and most performed aria, was flawless, with a quality that must match any that can be heard.” – Frances Brennan, Tampa Bay Free Press
“…major-league success” – Boston Musical Intelligencer, about Zoya Gramagin’s Liza in Tchaikovsky’s “The Queen of Spades”. Conductor Lidiya Yankovskaya.
