Julia Lezhneva thrilled audiences and critics alike at her debut as Cherubino in LE NOZZE DI FIGARO at the Hamburg State Opera (performances on 9, 17 and 19 May).

"Julia Lezhneva sang a Cherubino that I have never heard so brilliantly before. (...) The way Lezhneva used the vocal colours at her disposal, stupendous technique and dynamic nuances to bring out the emotions of Cherubino, who is not yet sure of his feelings, was great vocal artistry. Even in pianissimo, her voice carried far into the room and even in the recitatives, the Russian soprano was able to give the text a depth and emotional meaning that went far beyond what was sung."

There will be a revival in the 2024/25 season. Look forward to 6 more performances from mid-May to the beginning of July 2025.
