Tatjana Pawlowskaja


The soprano Tatiana Pavlovskaya, a native of Murmansk, received her musical training in piano, choral conducting, and voice. After graduating from the Rimsky Korsakov Conservatory in St. Petersburg she was immediately engaged as a member of the storied Mariinsky Theater ensemble, where she made her debut in 1995 as Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Since then she has appeared on this stage in the central roles of her repertoire, from Mozart’s Fiordiligi and the Countess in Figaro through Verdi’s Desdemona and Alice Ford and Puccini’s Mimì and Liù to Elsa in Wagner’s Lohengrin, Janáček’s Jenůfa, and the Governess in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw. She is especially known as an interpreter of Russian operas: whether Lisa in Pique Dame, Maria in Mazeppa, Gorislava in Ruslan and Lyudmila, Paulina in The Gambler, or Sofia in Semyon Kotko. In 1998 Pavlovskaya made her debut at La Scala in Milan as part of a Mariinsky Theater guest performance of Prokofiev’s War and Peace. Other credits include at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Royal Opera House in London, Los Angeles and San Francisco Operas, the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, and the Teatro Real in Madrid. She recently sang the Foreign Princess in Dvořák’s Rusalka at the Glyndebourne Festival, Giulietta in Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann in Barcelona, and the solo soprano part in Britten’s War Requiem in performances at the Zurich Tonhalle and with the Chicago and Boston Symphony Orchestras, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Orchestre National de Lyon. Tatiana Pavlovskaya has worked with such conductors as Semyon Bychkov, Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Jurowski, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Yuri Temirkanov.
