Reviews

“Varduhi Abrahamyan delivered the goods and tackled her bravura arias with dauntless courage and accuracy.”
Martin Wheeler, Opera News 

“Non moins spectaculaire s’avère le chant de la mezzo arménienne Varduhi Abrahamyan, avec un engagement physique et vocal qui rend particulièrement crédible son Malcolm. Avec son timbre riche et profond, d’une virtuosité électrisante, elle offre un parfait exemple de grande maîtrise belcantiste, notamment dans la cabalette « Oh ! Quante lacrime finor versai », où elle offre un da capo varié, avec des vocalises tourbillonnantes.”
Emmanuel Andrieu, Opera Online 

“The enhanced role of Bradamante was superbly performed by the Franco-Armenian mezzo-soprano Varduhi Abrahamyan, one of the singers recently chosen for Cecilia Bartoli’s label “Mentored by Bartoli.” Abrahamyan brought her character to the fore with vitality and occasional humor, resulting in a complexity and vigor that sometimes lacks in other productions. Among her many impressive vocal moments, her Act two aria “Vorrei vendicarmi” stood out for the long stretches of low-lying coloratura that are often a challenge for mezzos but which she sung with great aplomb.”
Robert Adelson & Jacqueline Letzter, Operawire.com 

“La mezzo-soprano Varduhi Abrahamyan, habituée du répertoire haendelien, incarne l’épouse oubliée de Ruggiero avec beaucoup de puissance, tant vocalement que scéniquement”
Maeva Da Cruz, Bachtrack 

“Bouleversante Varduhi Abrahamyan, mezzo-soprano Elle est Malcom, un homme chanté par une femme. C’est une grande tradition dans l’opéra italien et dans l’opéra en général d’avoir les rôles de jeunes hommes joués par des femmes. Sa voix grave de contralto se joue des graves et des aigus avec une facilité diabolique. Très féminine dans une robe de soirée noire, elle impose force et talent et personnifie un Malcom amoureux et impétueux. Acclamée au premier acte, c’est à elle que va l’engouement du public, à cette voix extrêmement chaude, extrêmement grave, dans laquelle s’inscrit tout le rôle de Malcom. Voix magnifique, voix précieuse, dont l’agilité dans une tessiture aussi grave demande beaucoup de souplesse et de facilité dans la virtuosité du chant.”
