Review: Opera de Montreal takes a risk with Dvorak’s Rusalka

“Russian tenor Khachatur Badalyan applied a ringing (if not overpowering) tone to the role of the Prince. He managed better then most as naturally convincing actor.”

“Although Kaduce was the standout role, Rusalka boasts an imbeccably well-cast roster of fine singers. Khachatur Badalyan’s rich and varied tenor and convincing portrayal of a man caught between two loves – Rusalka and the intended princess – was the second person in Rusalka’s trinity.”

“Khachatur Badalyan, replacant Konstantin Andreyev, malade, est une belle surprise. D’une voix saine franch et homogene sur la tessiture, il personifie un pince du fierre allure et parfaitement credible dans le decheance. Une prestation vocalement sans reproche et sceniquement pleine d’ardeur.”

“Molto bene il Rodolfo di Khachatur Badalyan, armeno, piacevole presenza scenica e al suo debutto italiano. Voce corposa e rotonda, dal colore brunito; armonici ricchi, omogeneità nei registri e facilità all’acuto.”  Marilisa Lazzari
