  BIOGRAPHY  

 

And who wouldn’t fall in love with the Russian Liudmila Lokaichuk? Her smile makes every coloratura look like a nonchalantly twittered serenade...."

Cottbus State Theatre - Barbe-Bleu - FLEURETTE
And princess Fleurette really brought in a touch of French opera bouffe vibes. The most Parisian voice of the evening comes from Russia and is called Liudmila Lokaichuk. The soprano has already won twice various prizes at the International Contest of the Chamber Opera in Rheinsberg. Congratulations to the Cottbus House for engaging this artist!

Liudmila Lokaichuk sings Princess Hermia (alias Fleurette)with a wonderfully appealing soprano timbre...

Cottbus State Theatre – Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny – JENNY HILL
No doubt, the real stars of the premiere were Liudmila Lokaichuk as Jenny Hill and Jens Klaus Wilde as Jim. Vocally seen, she succeeds in keeping the balance between sizzling eroticism, yearning, demanding, sometimes even begging or dying with sorrow.
Lausitzer Rundschau, Rüdiger Hofmann 13.3.2017
..with her warm soprano voice Liudmila Lokaichuks as Jenny is an opera diva per se.
Neues Deutschland, Stefan Amzoll 15.3.2017
Fontane Festival Neuruppin - GRETE MINDE
The 28 year old, slender Liudmila Lokaichuk portrayed Grete with so much power and rage both as an actor and as a singer that the audience was torn between the feeling of taking her in once’s arms and keeping out of her way to avoid her rage.
