Verdi - Otello, Opera pa Skäret, Sweden

"[...] the Slovak tenor Michal Lehotsky has the required stamina for the role as well as the steel in his voice to make the dramatic outbursts ride the orchestra, but he has a gentler side too, and though I wish he would scale down more in the big love duet in act I, he is at his most nuanced and expressive in Niun mi tema, which is the natural climax in this sad tale."

- Göran Forsling, Seen and Heard InternationalRead the article

"Otello is played by the slovakian tenor Michal Lehotsky. A true tour de force since he is on stage almost the whole time [...] his achievement is impressive."

- Måns Uggla, Nerikes AllehandaRead the article

"The chemistry between Michal Lehotsky's Otello and Charlotta Larsson's Desdemona is complete, their love seems so authentic that I am moved to tears already in the first act duet [...] Lehotsky is one with his role."

- Nicholas Ringskog Ferrada-Noli, Dagens Nyheter
