REVIEWS
 
Theater Bielefeld - Don Carlo - RODRIGO
Evgueniy Alexiev's Rodrigo is a fascinating figure: the vocally smooth and warm timbred baritone impresses as a cleverly maneuvering judge of character.

Bielefeld Opera - MACBETH
Evgueniy Alexiev, Winner of the Opera rize 'Operntaler' Operntalerträger in 2014, sang a procrastinating, thin-skinned Macbeth with a warm and noble baritone voice, In spite of all his wrongdoings and his psychical faults he 's got what it takes to be a popular figure.

Bielefeld Theatre - Tannhäuser - WOLFRAM
Evgueniy Alexiev excellently plays an unlikable Wolfram, ...'

'Evgueniy Alexiev masters Wolfram von Eschenbach's balancing act between conventionality and passion .'

Bielefeld Theatre - HAMLET
'Evgueniy Alexiev as Hamlet portrays a borderline charakter, the audience during 3 hours spellboundedly follows into the abyss . Subtly he plays off his instability, at the same time vocally expressing his brokeness in a very multifarious way. Here with great baritonal radiance, then again with suffocating despair. (…) Big applause for grand opera art."
Westfalen-Blatt, 02.03.15
Bielefeld Theatre - Madama Butterfly - SHARPLESS
'Evgueniy Alexiev portrrayed Sharpless mit power and warmth.'
Westfalenblatt
Bielefeld Theatre - Medée - CRÉON
'Also Evgueniy Alexiev with his well-grounded baritone voice inspires in the role of Créon.'
