Eugene Opera gives jaw-dropping performance of challenging ‘Eugene Onegin’

"Anton Belov, as Onegin, lent an air of authority to the production as his ownership of the role appeared effortless and his character’s often banal actions appeared motivated and relatable. His closing duet with Jill Gardner’s Tatyana was a showcase of emotion, with both actors adeptly oscillating between love and scorn, hope and grief."

"The highlight of the evening was Mr. Belov's powerful renditions of Trepak from Mussorgskys Songs and Dances of Death and the title characters aria from Rachmaninoffs Aleko. In Nochenka, a melancholy folk melody, Mr. Belov sounded particularly fine, singing with urgency and soulful pathos."

Uneven 'Carmen' has its moments
“With his rich, vibrant sound, command of the telling stage gesture, and marked ability to deliver spoken English dialogue convincingly (far better than the American singers), he stole the show. His ebullient 'Toreador Song' picked up the opera's flagging momentum, while his fervent aria declaring his love for Carmen revealed nuanced qualities of vocal timbre that simply thrilled."
