Armenian baritone Gevorg Hakobyan studied at the Komitas State Conservatory in Yerevan with Maestro Sergey Danielyan. In 2008, Gevorg was awarded both the Gold Medal and First Prize at the prestigious First International Pavel Lisitsian Baritone Competition in Moscow, and in 2011 was recognised as a Merited Artist of the Republic of Armenia. Since 2003, Gevorg has been a soloist with the Yerevan Opera Theater.
Gevorg begins the 2017/18 season by performing Tomsky in Pique Dame at Stuttgart Opera before returning to Teatro dell’Opera di Roma as Scarpia in Tosca (also performing this role later in the season at Palau de les Arts, Valencia). Gevorg will make his highly anticipated Bolshoi Theatre debut in The Tsar’s Bride (Gryaznoy) and Pique Dame (Tomsky).
Recent highlights include performances of Simon Boccanegra (title role) at the Mariinsky Theatre under Valery Gergiev, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma as Mathieu (Andrea Chénier) and Alfio (Cavalleria rusticana), Baron Scarpia (Tosca) at Theater Kiel and Nabucco (title role) at Terme di Caracalla, Rome.
