Biography

Russian soprano Aida Garifullina was the winner of the 2013 Operalia Competition. She is a former member of the ensemble of the Vienna State Opera (between 2013 and 2016) where she performed various roles including Musetta (La Bohème), Susanna (Le Nozze Di Figaro), Princess Eudoxie (La Juive), Elvira (L'italiana In Algeri), Adina (L'elisir d'amore), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Norina (Don Pasquale).

Aida was also a regular principal of the Mariinsky Theatre in roles such as Natasha in War in Peace (the new production by Graham Vick which was broadcasted live in cinemas), Gilda, Susanna & Adina.

Aida’s recent highlights have included recitals at the Wigmore Hall and the Vienna Musikverein; gala performances at the Dresden Semperopernball, the Vienna Staatsoperball and Salzburg Festival; a tour of the USA with Andrea Bocelli; a role in the feature film Florence Foster Jenkins and the 2016 Bastille Day concert in Paris.

In the 2016/17 season Aida will return to the Vienna State Opera for L'elisir d'amore and Rigoletto, and will make her debut in the title role of Roméo et Juliette conducted by Placido Domingo. Other opera highlights include her Opéra de Paris debut in the title role of a new Tcherniakov production of The Snow Maiden.

This season also sees Aida performing in numerous concerts, recitals and galas, including the Dresden Adventkonzert, solo concerts at the Prague Smetana Hall and the Moscow Conservatoire, two gala concerts with Dmitri Hvorostovsky at the Grafenegg festival, a concert with Lawrence Brownlee at the Théâtre des Champs Élysées and a return to the Wigmore Hall.

Looking further ahead to future seasons, Aida will make her debut at the Liceu Barcelona singing Roméo et Juliette, further appearances at Opéra de Paris, Vienna State Opera and her debut at The Metropolitan Opera alongside concerts, festivals and TV broadcasts throughout Europe and beyond.

Aida is an exclusive recording artist for Decca Records and her debut record will be released globally in February 2017.

Aida was born and grew up in Kazan. It was Aida’s mother, Laylya Ildarovna, who was a choirmaster that gave Aida her first music lessons and inspired her to be an opera singer. Later, Aida went on to study at the Nuremberg University of Music and then the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna.

Aida is an ‘Honoured Artist of the Republic of Tatarstan’.

Tenderness, softness, warmth and depth make her voice today unmistakable. Its implementation always has an inherent impeccable taste, sense of style and restraint and severity in the expression of feelings, caused by its mentality. All of the above, in combination with her external beauty, youth and charm make her executable images, sometimes, simply irresistible.
