Reviews & Press

 
 

Opéra de Lyon - Béla Bartók - Bluebeard’s Castle - Judith

Having two mezzos singing the same role offers, as if being in an odd competition, is an unfortunate juxtaposition. Both Ève-Maud Hubeaux and Victoria Karkacheva delivered excellent performances, although the latter possesses a warmer and more versatile voice and her Hungarian diction was also better.

Muy convincdente la Olga de Victoria Karkacheva, tanto por su presencia escénica como por el instrumento exhibido, de un color oscuro muy atractivo.

Olga, la jeune sœur spontanée et quelque peu écervelée de Tatiana a été confié à Victoria Karkacheva : une voix très riche, expressive et une actrice excellente.

Bayerische Staatsoper - Prokofiev - War and Peace - Countess Hélène Visitowa

Victoria Karkacheva's appearance as Hélène is also very well cast, an interesting voice already heard in Lyon, a committed character, who portrays this light and dancing Hélène in contrast to her husband Pierre. A nice profile.
