Baritone

Gevorg Hakobyan has captured the opera lover's hearts with his rich dramatic baritone and charismatic acting from many prestigious stages around the world. His secret is hidden not only in his powerful and colorful voice but also in his fathomless spiritual repository, which is the basis of every sound and phrase he sings.

Gevorg Hakobyan is particularly a baritone of veristic repertoire. Opera experts consider him a successor of the Old Italian vocal school and often compare him with giants like Ettore Bastianini, Silvano Carroli. After presenting Nabucco in Teme di Caracalla, Rome, Hakobyan’s performance was compared “with one of the greatest Nabucco of all time Giangiacomo Guelfi” Hakobyan's performances are a symbiosis of potential voice, perfect vocal technique, and charismatic stage presence.

"Dès son entrée sur scène, Gevorg Hakobyan s'impose dans le rôle du Baron Scarpia. De par sa prestance, sa performance dramatique indique qu’il habite pleinement le personnage et lève le voile sur certaines des ambivalences du chef de la police sanguinaire. D’une voix de stentor, le baryton restitue avec brio le sadisme de Scarpia et referme le premier acte d’un Te Deum magistral, alliant magnificence du timbre et effroi par la projection. Loin de délivrer une performance monolithique, l’interprète laisse également transparaître les failles d’un homme rejeté, par la ductilité de son phrasé et des résonnances : profondément seul à l’Acte II en adoptant des postures pathétiques et un souffle long pour inviter Tosca à le rejoindre pour son repas."

"... tonight a trip through the darkest pages of human thoughts was arranged by the frighteningly demonic Scarpia of Gevorg HAKOBYAN. The Armenian baritone was the most vivid impression that we took with us from this evening. His “Va Tosca” perfectly mixed the ubiquitous influx of negative energy with the divine holiness, and the level of intensity - in the best traditions of theatrical drama - constantly increased. IN THIS CASE, one could dare to use the phrase "world-class dramatic baritone", and it will be appropriate."
