For her highly anticipated first album on Sony Classical, Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili joins forces with the RAI National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Giacomo Sagripanti. The program includes two arias – the seductive ‘Habanera’ and ‘Seguidilla’ – from what has become her signature role, Carmen. The selection goes on to reflect her broad dramatic and musical range and her personal history. It includes Lyubasha’s haunting song from Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar’s Bride, an opera which she sang under Daniel Barenboim at Berlin’s Staatsoper.
