“Au plus remarqué, figure le ténor Kirill Belov (25 ans), né à Oufa en République de Bachkirie et membre de l’Académie du Théâtre Mariinsky de Saint-Pétersbourg. Cette voix longue de ténor lyrique léger, à l’aigu insolent, au timbre séduisant… son interprétation est remplie d’une vraie passion, la ligne de chant s’avère soignée et la prononciation acquise. Il remporte sans conteste les pleines faveurs du public.”

“The highlight among the male cast is Kirill Belov portraying the Innocent, whose merit is creating a character without excessive pathos. His stage presence and vocal timbre are both crystal clear, as if to better ensure the effectiveness of the haunting melodic line which the composer places in the mouth of God’s chosen one.”

“La palme masculine revient à l’Innocent Kirill Belov, qui a le mérite de composer un personnage sans excès de pathos. La présence scénique comme le timbre se font limpides, comme pour mieux assurer l’efficacité de la ligne mélodique lancinante que le compositeur place dans la bouche de l’élu de Dieu.”
