Rossini

Il barbiere di Siviglia

Wiener Staatsoper

“Conte Almaviva ist bei Pavel Kolgatin in sicherer Kehle. Auch spielt der junge Russe, der schon sehr international, speziell in Italien, unterwegs ist, sehr gut." Elena Habermann, Online Merker, March 2016

Bellini

La Sonnambula

Salzburger Landestheater

Maybe the highlight of the evening was 27-year old tenor Pavel Kolgatin in the role of Elvino. What a lovely lyric tenor voice! But also his physical appearance was really nice and the female part of the audience surely would have loved to be his beloved. He gave a really great performance with clear and tastefull singing. Daniel Url, The Operatic Musicologist, 23 February 2015
The Russian is an Italian tenor par excellence, meaty, bright strong, always present and confident. Reinhard Kreichbaum, Dreh Punkt Kultur, 23 February 2015

He grasped the audience from the first minute with his warm and incredibly clear timbre. Despite his young age, Kolgatin has a very prominent and diverse voice, and it is especially the piano passages in which the tenor demonstrated his variety of timbres.

Larissa Schütz, Bachtrack, 24 February 2015

Mussorgsky

Boris Godunov

Wiener Staatsoper

"Die für mich ergreifendste Szene war die zwischen dem Boris und dem Gottesnarren, der von Pavel Kolgatin einfach großartig gesungen und besonders gespielt wurde. Ein vom Schicksal gebeutelter, der zum Opfer der „Maltchiki (kleinen Buben)“ wurde – und als einziger den Mut hat, dem Zaren das ins Gesicht zu sagen, was andere nur hinter dessen Rücken munkeln. Kolgatin war für mich die Entdeckung des Abends." Kurt Vlach, Online Merker, 31 January 2014

...The breakthrough of the night was the tenor Pavel Kolgatin, Dmitry Vdovin’s student. Despite being only 21 years old he has shown himself as the real expert in his genre. Kolgatin knows how to create the special intimate atmosphere as if he applies to each listener… Kultura Newspaper, December 25th 2008
