St. Gallen Opera House – Queen of Spades – TOMSKY – 2012

Lead voice and leading actor among them is Tomsky, both vocally and dramaticly imposingly performed by Roman Ialcic, right from the beginning unto the biting offences in the final act.
Opéra de Toulon – Der Freischütz – CASPAR – 2011
Roman Ialcic, in the role of Caspar is very impressing
...the impressing Moldavian bass baritone Roman Ialcic ...
Ialcic’ Caspar was was excellent, both vocal and gramaticly.
Caspar was sung by Moldavian bass-baritone Roman Ialcic who discovered the cunning of Weber’s evil paysan, but did not project its force. Mr Ialcic is a fine singer…
