Theater Bonn - Don Giovanni - Leporello, 2016/17

Jetzt, Jahre später, verfügt das Haus über einen Don Giovanni, der kaum Wünsche übriglässt, den Brutalo ebenso wie den Melancholiker zu artikulieren weiß. An seiner Seite agiert Martin Tzonev als Leporello bravourös und jederzeit auf Augenhöhe.

- Opernnetz, Ralf SiepmannRead the article

Martin Tzonev gibt einen soliden Leporello, der mehr und mehr burleske Zwischentöne ins ansonsten reichlich ernste Spiel einflechtet.

- Online Musik Magazine, Stefan SchmöeRead the article
