Ypač reikėtų pasidžiaugti Leporelo vaidmens atlikėju – klaipėdiečiu Igoriu Bakanu, atliekančiu pagrindines partijas įvairiuose Europos teatruose. Sukūręs visais požiūriais įspūdingą komedinį paveikslą, jis tapo ryškia operos veiksmo varomąja jėga. Dinamišką vokalinę partiją su parlando tipo greitakalbe, daugkartiniu vienos trumpos frazės kartojimu ir pusiau rečitatyvine melodika I.Bakanas atliko nepriekaištingai. Puikiai skambėjo jo nepaprastai gražaus tembro, sodrus ir galingas, stipria vokaline technika pasižymintis bosas. Komiškasis I.Bakano Leporelas kibirkščiavo vaidybine išmone, juokino ir stebino išraiškingomis mizanscenomis.

Igor Bakan was a knockout as a rather verismo-like Renato! Bakan sang and acted for his life with inexhaustible commitment. The detailed connections he drew from the words and notes were extraordinary. He repeatedly brought powerfully effectively emphasis to bear on his vocal line, cleverly gleaned from the music. One rarely feels so shaken by Renato's inner breakdown. His voice sounded expansive and impressed with its secure high notes. An exceptional achievement by an outstanding artist!

In return, he was at the premiere surrounded by strong Baltic and Eastern European votes, of which especially the Lithuanian baritone Igor Bakan as Anckarström was absolutely terrific. Large, muscular, yet controlled, he sang the party, where he sobbed on his knees in the last act appeared deeply credible.

 

THOMAS MICHELSEN - Musikredaktør

 

Igor Bakan  as Anckarström got cheer several times and became the evening's big surprise. A lovely bass-baritone.

Perfetto nella parte il barbiere Igor Bakan che si contende a pieno titolo l’attenzione rivolta al protagonista, interpretando anche il viaggiatore....

 

MARIA TERESA GIOVAGNOLI

 

Igor Bakans Anckarström has impressive vocal abilities, but often balances on the game's boundary.

Singing in this production was very good with outstanding performances by Ben Connor (Slook) and Igor Bakan (Mill), who both mastered the Rossini coloratura impressively and also excelled in the secco recitatives that push the story forward.
