Several performances at prestigious festivals in Italy and Switzerland follow. At one of the performances of the opera "The Rose Knight" by Richard Strauss in the city of Chemnitz, Germany, the former director of the Vienna State Opera and impresario Johann Hollender was present, who personally congratulated him, saying that it was an honor for any great opera house to have such a tenor for this so difficult party. About Valery Georgiev, Jose Cura says, “My work with Valery Georgiev as De Grio was an unexpected surprise. His voice is strong and well-trained, and he is also an accomplished musician, which makes the conductor's work with him very easy."
