What fascinates me about my job is the opportunity to slip into the skin and soul of various protagonists and to be part of a great musical event that enchants me again and again. Ketevan Chuntishvili
In 2020, Ketevan Chuntishvili made her debut at Stadttheater Klagenfurt singing the 5th Maid in a new production of Strauss’ Elektra.
