  • Verdi Nabucco

    Metropolitan Opera New York
    Sep 2023 - Oct 2023
    • Of the soloists, it is Zaccaria that dominates the first act, here commandingly sung by Dmitry Belosselskiy, his several arias all perfectly idiomatic.

    • Il affronte crânement les difficultés de sa grande scène du premier acte 'Sperate o figli' [Translated] He bravely tackles the difficulties of his great Act I scene, 'Sperate o figli'

    • Dmitry Belosselskiy was also reprising the role of the high priest Zaccaria. His robust bass rang out fierce and defiant

    • Belosselskiy, who returned as Zaccaria in “Nabucco,” sang attractively in “Vieni, o Levita.”

    • In another role reprisal from 2016, Dmitry Belosselskiy displayed a rich and flowingly lyrical bass in his sage and subtle depiction of Zaccaria, the High Priest of Jerusalem.

  • Wagner Der Fliegende Holländer

    May 2023 - Jun 2023
    • As Daland, Dmitry Belosselskiy was similarly effective, particularly during his duet with Konieczny. He managed a brighter timbre in his bass with rhythmic accuracy and pinpoint diction throughout. This was also noticeable during “Mögst du, mein Kind, den fremden Mann willkommen heissen!” when he introduces Senta to the Dutchman. His bass maintained a sturdiness throughout

    • Bass Dmitry Belosselskiy was full of character and vocal weight as Daland, believably craven in his eagerness to sell Senta off to the Dutchman

    • Dmitry Belosselskiy was as tender as Daland as he was terrifying as the Commendatore in Don Giovanni.

    • Dmitry Belosselskiy used his weighty and characterful bass to effectively portray Daland, Senta’s father, as a strong but unscrupulous man who eagerly sells off his daughter to the Dutchman in return for great wealth. The two smaller roles were less evenly cast

  • Verdi Don Carlos

    Lyric Opera of Chicago
    Nov 2022 - Dec 2022
    • Dmitri Belosselskiy is a towering King Philippe with a fantastically commanding and cavernous bass voice. This is a man in control and you are drawn to the very power of his voice.

    • Belosselskiy potently conveys the strength of the Spanish king but also his vulnerability, which comes through in a moving performance of the character’s desolate Act 4 meditation on his age and loveless marriage

  • Verdi Don Carlos

    Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich
    Sep 2022 - Oct 2022
    • Dmitry Belosselsky gibt mit vollem Bass den Despoten Philipp II. Seine väterliche Liebe unterdrückt er hoheitsvoll. Seine Machtlosigkeit im Konflikt von Amt und eigenen Gefühlen streicht er geschickt nuanciert vor allem in seiner großen Arie „Sie hat mich nie geliebt“ heraus.” [Translated] Dmitry Belosselsky plays the despot Philip II with full bass. He sovereignly suppresses his paternal love. He skilfully highlights his powerlessness in the conflict between office and his own feelings, especially in his great aria “Ella giammai m’amo”.
