Tamar Iveri

Disgraced Soprano Tamar Iveri Performs at Anti-Abuse Concert >>

Disgraced Georgian soprano Tamar Iveri performed at an anti-violence charity concert last night in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. The performance marks the first stage in the singer's attempt to rebuild her international career, after gaining worldwide criticism for homophobic comments made on her Facebook page last year. Iveri posted a letter on her Facebook page and addressed it to then-Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili May 18, 2013, the day after Orthodox Christian groups violently assaulted participants in a gay pride march in Tbilisi. The letter reportedly included the following statements: "I was quite proud of the fact how Georgian society spat at the parade" and "Please, stop vigorous attempts to bring the West's 'faecal masses' in the mentality of the people by means of propaganda." In a series of conflicting statements, Iveri subsequently claimed that either her husband wrote the offending post or that the couple had worked on it in tandem. Either way, following "Limelight’s" breaking of the story in June and the notoriety Iveri gained from the comments, the Georgian soprano was forced to exit her contracts with Brussels’s La Monnaie and other opera companies.
