REVIEWS

Il Trittico – October 2017

“Obendrein gab es am gestrigen Abend ein Rollendebut: Boris Statsenko ist am Haus überlicherweise auf die großen Baritonrollen abonniert, war u.a. ein umwerfender Rigoletto und hat mich in der vergangenen Spielzeit als Jago tief beeindruckt. Dass der Russe auch komisch kann, darf er nun seit gestern in der Titelrolle des „Gianni Schicchi“ unter Beweis stellen – und es gelingt ihm hervorragend. Mit viel Gespür für komödiantisches Timing gibt er den schlitzohrigen Florentiner mal stimmgewaltig, mal als Greis mit gebrochenem Stimmchen. Es ist schlicht herrlich zuzusehen, wie das langjährige Ensemblemitglied seinem künstlerischen Schaffen eine weitere Facette hinzufügt.”

Tosca by G. Puccini, Arena di Verona – 2017

“Molto interessante dal punto di vista musicale lo Scarpia delineato dal baritono Boris Statsenko. Il cantante russo ha mostrato consistente drammaticità e notevole presenza scenica oltre che una vocalità dal timbro perfettamente in sintonia con il ruolo affrontato. Statsenko, che è dotato di voce salda e può contare su una corretta emissione che lo sorregge in tutti i registri, offre una prova di forza considerevole nel secondo atto, risultando vocalmente sicuro e un interprete coinvolgente.”
