Concertgebouw Amsterdam - Semyon Kotko - Semyon Kotko, 2016/17

Moeiteloos schakelend tussen snedig parlando en expressieve lijnen gaf tenor Oleg Dolgov een overtuigende lezing van de titelrol.

- NRC.nlRead the article

De tenor Oleg Dolgov zong een bewonderenswaardige Kotko. De hondsmoeilijke rol verlangt van zijn vertolker een meer dan wagneriaans uithoudingsvermogen, waarbij hij geen seconde zijn lyriek mag vergeten. Iets als ‘Cavaradossi meets Siegfried’. Dat (en veel meer) had Dolgov in huis. Hij was volkomen overtuigend in de liefdevolle scènes met zijn moeder (een uitstekende Alexandra Durseneva), evenals in zijn heldhaftige verlangen naar actie.

- Basia Jaworski, Opera MagazineRead the article

Mit Recht an der Spitze der rundum vorzüglichen Besetzung der Omroepmuziek im Concertgebouw steht Oleg Dolgov als Semjon mit edel timbriertem, dabei substanzreichem und auch in den Höhen die schöne Rundung behaltendem Tenor, ausgezeichneter Diktion und differenziert in der Behandlung des Textes wie der musikalischen Linien. Für die dramatischen Passagen braucht er weder zu pressen noch zu brüllen – so einen Sänger würde man gern auch z.B. als German hören. Auch den Kriegsheimkehrer, der sich erst wieder im Sozialnetz Dorf zurechtfinden muss und bei aller Tapferkeit sich erst um Sonja zu werben traut, als er von seiner Schwester Frosja dazu gedrängt wird, vermittelt er in der Konzertsituation anschaulich. Einer der nicht nur kompositorischen, sondern auch sängerischen Höhepunkte des Abends wird sein Duett mit Sonja, wo er sich lyrisch verströmt und sie dazu in gehetztem Agitato ihren Angsttraum über den unheimlichen neuen Arbeiter erzählt.

- Samuel Zinsli, Opera LoungeRead the article

Oleg Dolgov commands the stage with his burly physique, deeply sonorous voice, but warm hearted appearance. His vocal reach had no problem conquering the acoustics of the Great Hall.

- David Pinedo, Opera TodayRead the article

On the other hand, tenor Oleg Dolgov was tireless as Semyon, with a vigorous, velvety timbre and surefire top notes.

- Jenny Camilleri, BachtrackRead the article


Bolshoi Theatre Moscow - Carmen - Don Jose, 2015/16

"Oleg Dolgov may go down as one of the great interpreters of Don Jose."

 

Among the principals in the cast, it was tenor Oleg Dolgov, as Don Jose, who alone truly came to grips with the demands of his role. Since I last heard him at the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center nearly a decade ago, his voice seems to have gained considerable power, resonance and polish. And like great interpreters of the role, past and present, he moved smoothly from the lighter-voiced lyric-tenor music of the first two acts to the heavier music for dramatic tenor of acts three and four.
