Sergey Romanovsky is a young Russian tenor who is just at the beginning of what promises to be a major career. Listen to these excerpts and you’ll be very impressed. I think he was a student when the first two of these recordings were made. This is a major talent that I hope develops without mishap.

Olesya Chuprinova is the mezzo in the Il Viaggio a Reims duet. From these few clips it sounds like he could do roles that require a little more vocal heft, eg Edgardo. Perhaps even Boheme a little further down the road. In any case, I hope we hear more of him and soon.

The following text is taken from his management’s web site:

Recently he received high acclaim for his debut performance as Tebaldo in ‘I Capuleti e Montecchi’ at the opening night of the 08/09 season of the Moscow State Philharmonic Society opposite Patrizia Ciofi and Anna Bonitatibus and made his debut at La Scala in Milan with Libenskoff in ‘Il Viaggio a Reims’. He also recently sang Ernesto in ‘Don Pasquale’ at the Norske Opera in Oslo, Lensky in ‘Eugene Onegin’ in Lille and Amiens, Rachmaninov’s ‘The Bells’ with the RSNO and a recital at the Musashino Civic Cultural Hall in Japan.

His future engagements will include ‘Il Barbiere di Siviglia’ at the Opera de Wallonie, Alfredo in ‘La Traviata’ iat the Teatro Comunale Chiabrera (Savona), ‘La Fille du Regiment’ and Rossini’s ‘Petite messe solennelle’ both with the Moscow State Philharmonic Society and Rossini’s ‘Stabat Mater’ at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Firenze). He will also be singing Rachmaninov’s ‘The Bells’ with VARA Radio and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
