“…The sharp, magnificent voice of Tatiana Melnychenko’s Turandot. Brian Jagde’s Calaf confronts her with the same ringing. Both bend the ring to a flexible, variable phrasing…” Turandot at Teatro Massimo in Palermo. Written on February 26 2019

“… Montreal Opera offers quite reasonable cast to music lovers. However, a Russian soprano steals the show in Nabucco. This is Tatiana Melnychenko in the leading role of Abigaille, daughter of the king, power-hungry, debuting at the company. She is able to perform the vocaly extremely difficult role as it requested by Verdi… …She also stunning stage presence.” Montreal, September 2014

La Scena Musical

“Russian soprano Tatiana Melnychenko acquitted herself superbly, both as a multidimensional character actress and as a singer. She hit the top notes with ease, deftly navigated the sharp turns and landed softly on the low notes. Her vulnerability in “Anch’io dischiuso un giorno” (I too once opened my heart) elicited plenty of sympathy.”

“…The real joy of verdian singing was given us by soprano Tatiana Melnychenko in the role of Lady Macbeth. Power, volume and variety of her voice’s color palette fully matched the expectation of Verdi himself. Fabulous mastery of acting and singing has allowed the singer to create the character of Lady Macbeth. “
