Aix-en-Provence - Erismena - Erimante, 2016/17

Honneur au souverain, tout d'abord !
Sous la couronne d'Erimante, Alexander Miminoshvili sait passer des doux souhaits languissants agenouillé (Je brûle pour un beau visage, I) à la vengeance tyrannique en fin d’Acte II, avant l'incroyable dénouement, exprimé néanmoins avec justesse au duo final avec sa fille retrouvée par miracle – un indice, son nom figure au titre de l'œuvre ! 

- FC, AnaclaseRead the article

Autour de ces deux couples, le roi Erimante jaloux et inquiet, bien personnifié par Alexander Miminoshvili, belle basse barytonnante aux graves profonds, au chant souple et au timbre chaleureux doué d’une jolie expressivité en colorant bien les paroles.

- Guy Cherqui, WandererRead the article

Troisième prétendant à la main d’Aldimira, le roi Erimante est confié à Alexander Miminoshvili, basse assez déliée pour pratiquer le recitar cantando mais assez profonde pour descendre vers les notes les plus sombres.

- Laurent Bury, Forum OperaRead the article

The man who lost it all but gains a daughter and an heir, the Median king Erimante was solidly sung and acted by Russian bass-baritone Alexander Miminoshvili.
