Her recognised vocal versatility combined with an appreciated stage presence enable her to take on several roles ranging over the international repertoire: she debuted in the role of Juliet Brook in “The Little Sweep” as part of “Sofia Music Weeks”. She interpreted Ksenia in “Boris Godunov” of M. Mussorgsky, conducted by Maestro Metodi Matakiev in Denmark; she was Frasquita (Carmen) and Papagena (The Magic Flute) during a tournée in the United States of America. Back in her native Bulgaria at the Opera Theatre of Stara Zagora, Galia took on the roles of Violetta Valéry (La traviata), Gilda (Rigoletto) and Micaela (Carmen).
In 2012, Galia Bakalov was invited by the “A. Belli” Experimental Opera Theatre of Spoleto for the role of Violetta Valéry during the 66th Opera Season.
In April 2013, she was Violetta once more in G. Verdi’s “La traviata” in the avant-première for the grand opening of the Anthéa Antipolis Theatre of Antibes in a Monte-Carlo Opera production conducted by Maestro Antonino Fogliani. The same year, she sang in “Amelia Goes to the Ball” by G. Menotti at the Monte-Carlo Opera conducted by Maestro Placido Domingo. There, she subsequently also took on the role of Dame Pâle in S. Prokofiev’s “The Gambler” in 2016.
In 2017, she then wore the clothes of Giulia in G. Rossini’s “Silken Ladder” at Ireland’s Wexford Festival.
