Royal Opera House London - La Tragédie de Carmen - Carmen, November 2017

All the young singers performed admirably, but Aigul Akhmetshina stole the show as a sultry, devastating Carmen. She was absolutely stunning. She was a vixen, but her sensuality was brilliantly balanced with a heartbreaking awareness of her own impending death. Her singing was gorgeous - a rich voice full of colour and flexibility that blossomed into an unexpectedly full, gorgeous sound in the top. She navigated the role with confidence and ease, bringing the audience easily into her tragic world.

- Vivian Darkbloom, SchmoperaПрочитать статью

Most memorable of the lot, thought, was Aigul Akhmetshina's Carmen, her voice skilfully tailored to the venue size, her tone rich dark chocolate all the way down, her ease of movement and control of the stage space truly authoritative. Glissandos galore, her Carmen was more cabaret chanteuse than opéra-comique gypsy. 

- Opera Magazine

The Russian mezzo Aigul Akhmetshina is only in her early 20s, but she has got it all: striking good looks, a vibrant stage presence and a great voice. ‘The new Netrebko’

- David Mellor, Daily MailПрочитать статью

Aigul Akhmetshina, whose slinky mezzo-soprano is just right for Carmen, is a star in the making.

- Financial Times

That quibble apart, the passion, power and drive of this intense production is breathtaking, with a performance in the title role by Russian mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina to rival any on the musical stage in London, wonderfully sung, dazzlingly danced and acted, and, in this intimate and exposed space, unflinching in its command of one of the best known operatic roles. And she is 21 years old. Catch her while you can: she is going places fast.

 

Fortunately, London will be Akhmetshina's home for another two years, as she takes part in the Royal Opera House's prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists scheme. 

- Claudia Pritchard, Culture WhisperПрочитать статью

Aigul Akhmetshina certainly did cause hearts to flutter. Indeed, she seemed to have more fun flirting with the audience than with her Don José at times. Her sultry Carmen is the real deal and she's destined to perform the full role many times in her career. Her mezzo is ripe and syrupy, seductive in her habanera – where she has to entrance José by slowly peeling a satsuma! – and full of allure. 

- Mark Pullinger, BachtrackПрочитать статью

Aigul Akhmetshina makes a lushly sensual Carmen, sinuous in the Habanera and sultry in the Seguédilla.

- Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph Прочитать статью

The best all-round performance comes from Russian mezzo Aigul Akhmetshina as Carmen herself, her mezzo velvety and insolent, throwing off a cool habanera while peeling a satsuma.
