In memory of Gegam Grigorian
The death of Gegam Grigorian is an irreplaceable loss not just for us, for Armenia and Russia, but for many, many fans of opera throughout the world.
His unique voice was heard at the world’s greatest opera venues, while for the Mariinsky Theatre he was not just a soloist but a kind friend as well who sincerely loved his colleagues.
A true professional who had a remarkable broad talent and a generous heart, he dedicated his entire life to art. His stunning voice and powerful charisma left no-one untouched wherever in the world he was performing.
His friends, colleagues and students will always retain thankful and kind memories of him, and the images he created will remain etched in our memories for years to come.
In deep sadness,
