Georgia Burashko is a Canadian mezzo-soprano based in Den Haag, the Netherlands.
Georgia completed her Bachelor’s degree at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music, Master’s degree at The University of Toronto Opera School, was a Rebanks Family Fellow at the Glenn Gould School, and received a second Masters degree in Early Music with “Distinction for possessing a marvellous instrument, placed at the service of musical artistry with the deepest engagement” from the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag.
Her recent operatic roles include Diewer (J.S Bach- De Apocalyps), Juno (Orphée aux Enfers), Tirinto (Imeneo), Zosha (Farewell Auschwitz), Cari Bayar (Lizée and Ivany’s No Ones Safe), Dritte Dame (Die Zauberflöte), Nerone (Agrippina), and, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) in which she was praised for her 'heartfelt delivery, her luminous voice matching her radiant beauty’ (Opera Canada).
Georgia is equally at home on the operatic stage and in concert work. Highlights of 2021 included singing Erbarme dich with De Netherlands Bachvereniging on NPO4 and singing the role of Nerone in Handel’s Agrippina at Royaumont.
