    “Russian tenor Maxim Mironov was a trumpet-voiced Orpheus who never tired during his ultra-long part.”

    Maria Nockin, Broadway World, 11 March 2018

    “The singers are believable as dancers. Maxim Mironov proves capable of handling the high tenor tessitura while suavely sashaying with his scarf.”

    Mark Swed, LA Times, 12 March 2018

    ” the dancing furies and Elysian post-mortals of the Joffrey integral with the fiery passion of high-ranging tenor Maxim Mironov’s Orpheus”

    Marc Haefele, SCPR.org, 20 March 2018

    “Maxim Mironov, as a blond Adonis of an Orpheus, sang the high tenor role with a warm, resonant, forward-placed voice and even negotiated an agreeable melisma in dense arias.”

    Donna Perlmutter, LA Observed, 21 March 2018

    16 Aug 17 ROSSINI La pietra del paragone
    Rossini Opera Festival

    “The young tenor Maxim Mironov, who played the poet Giocondo, was the name on everyone’s lips by the end of the show. His voice is… it is beautifully produced, and focuses to a laser-like point up top. Mironov has a lovely sense of line, and also has necessary bite in the sound for the coloratura…”
    James Imam, BachTrack, 13 August 2017

    “Russian tenor Maxim Mironov as cavalier Giocondo delivers the showpiece aria “Quell’alme pupille” (These gentle eyes) stylishly, with a sustained High C.”
    Clare Colvin, The Express, 20 August 2017

    “L’élégance virtuose de Maxim Mironov, Giocondo mélodieux, souple et puissant, convient parfaitement au jeune poète sensible et délicat, et lui vaut aussi des applaudissements après Quell’alme pupille (Acte II, scène 4), véritable mini leçon de bel canto.”
    Élisabeth Schneiter, ResMusica, 29 August 2017

    Théâtre des Champs-Élysées

    “À son entrée en scène, on est dans un premier temps frappé par l’élégance naturelle de Maxim Mironov. Une élégance qui se retrouve également dans un chant qui s’assouplit au fil de la soirée, un phrasé délicat et une voix claire, solide et bien projetée dans tous les registres.”
    Steeve Boscardin, Resmuisca, 18 June 2017

    “Enfin, en amant éperdu et rusé, Maxim Mironov est presque trop probe, mais sa voix dense, son style impeccable et son timbre caressant, devenus trop rares à Paris, s’écoutent avec délice, d’autant qu’il semble avoir gagné en puissance.”

    Wiener Staatsoper

    “Altrettanto bravo, se non ancora più stupefacente il Lindoro di Maxim Mironov. Un altro giovane che ha l’epressività di un attore consumato e la voce coi sovracuti perfetta per i ruoli rossiniani.”

    Di Bartolo, Operaeopera, 10 April 2017

    “Maxim Mironov (Lindoro), qui sait en revanche exactement que faire de sa partie: une voix énergique, homogène sur tous les registres, des aigus éclatants qui servent son personnage plutôt que de simple faire-valoir.”

    Dimitri Finker, ConcertoNet, 2 April 2017

    Stanislawksy Theatre Moscow

    “Максим Миронов – замечательный лирический тенор, признанный россиниевский виртуоз. ”
    “Maxim Mironov – a great lyric tenor, recognized Rossini virtuoso.”
    Татьяна Елагина, Music Seasons, December 2016

    “Миронов, признанный авторитет в этой области, обладает вокалом, позволяющим ему блистать в операх бельканто, и не где-нибудь, а на родине стиля, в Италии. И не только в операх Россини.”

    “Mironov, a recognized authority in this field, has vocals, allowing it to shine in the bel canto operas, and not just anywhere, but at home the style in Italy. And not only in operas by Rossini.”

    Майя Крылова, www.rewizor.ru, 27 December 2016

    “Концерт-рассказ, состоявшийся 15 декабря, с новой силой убедил в том, что этот на редкость изысканный, утонченный певец – не просто обладатель высокого и легкого тенора благородно-яркого тембра, не просто мастер бельканто и не просто мастер лирически-проникновенных.”

    “Concert-story, which took place on December 15 with a bang convinced that this extremely elegant, refined singer – not just the owner of a high and noble light tenor-bright timbre, not just a master of bel canto, and not just a master of lyrical soulful.”

    Игорь Корябин, Belcanto.ru, 23 December 2016

    Francesco Lora, L’ape musicale, 23 October 2016

    “Maxim Mironov gestaltet die Partie ihres Gatten mit schlankem Tenor, der in den Höhen enorme Strahlkraft entwickelt.”

    “Maxim Mironov, der in diesem Jahr in Bad Wildbad auch noch ein Belcanto-Konzert
    mit Arien vorstellt, die Komponisten wie Rossini und Donizetti für den Ausnahmetenor Rubini komponiert haben, kann auch in der Partie des
    Gernando unter Beweis stellen, dass ihm die hohe Tenorlage großartig in der Kehle liegt. Schon bei seiner Auftrittskavatine begeistert Mironov mit strahlend ausgesungenen Höhen und reißt das Publikum zu Begeisterungsstürmen hin.”

    “Son amoureux le ténor Maxim Mironov est un Lindoro de rêve tant vocalement que scéniquement. Le ténor russe a une voix agréablement sucrée sans mièvrerie. Lui aussi a un timbre d’une homogénéité parfaite et vocalise admirablement. C’est pourtant son legato et son utilisation de nuances et des couleurs qui font tout le prix de ses délicieuses cavatines.”
    Hubert Stoecklin, Classique News, 1 June 2016

    Theater an der Wien

    “Die dunkel gewordene Mittellage gibt der Rolle ein markant männliches Profil und bildet einen klanglich klar abgegrenzten Gegenpol zu Maxim Mironovs hellem Rodrigo, bei dem man sich passagenweise eine legatoreichere Phrasierung gewünscht hätte.”
    Rainhard Wiesinger, Klassik, 21 February 2016

    “Begeistert war das Publikum auch von Maxim Mironov, der als Rodrigo im Hit dieser Oper, „Ah come mai non senti“, mit Virtuosität und hellem, weichem Rossini-Timbre gleichermaßen überzeugte.”
    Bach Track, 26 February 2016

    “Maxim Mironov brought a “classical” Rossini instrument and technique…”
    Moore Parker, The Opera Critic, 19 February 2016

    “Als braves Sohnchen Rodrigo hat der Tenor Maxim Mironov viele starke Szenen.”
    Peter Jarolin, Kurier, 21 February 2016

    “Letzterer spielt zwar kaum eine Rolle m Drama, kompensiert dies aber mit rasenden Koloraturen in aberqitzigen Hohen. Der Russen Maxim Mironov scheint das kaum Muhe zu kosten.”

    “Considered one of the most interesting Rossini tenors of his generation, Mironov was impressive as the Prince with his bel canto style of singing, consisting of rapidly ascending and descending melodic lines, with great high notes.”

    12 Jun 15 MOZART Don Giovanni
    L'Opera de Monte-Carlo

    “Maxim Mironov (Don Ottavio) a gagné en largeur vocale ces dernières années, et sa ligne de chant toujours soignée en fait l’un des meilleurs titulaires actuels, alors que Giacomo Prestia est un Commandeur à la voix autoritaire et bien stable”.
    Francios Jestin, Revue De Presse, 28 March 2015

    “Assai bravo Maxim Mironov, un Don Ottavio che in mezzo ad un cast vocale che tende a far la voce grossa figura con un volume di voce…  lo stile è sovrano e l’eleganza con cui intona le arie (la seconda delle quali, “Il mio tesoro”, infarcita da una cadenza in acuto che svela le reali possibilità di una voce che sappiamo primeggiare nel repertorio rossiniano) confermano in lui un cantante che ha nell’eleganza e nel bel porgere una stimabile cifra mozartiana. Anche nel cast femminile colpisce la differenza di approccio stilistico”.
    Alessandro Mormile, Revue De Presse, 28 March 2015

    “Le ténor russe Maxim Mironov campe un Ottavio aux aigus sûrs, avec une longueur de souffle et une faconde acquises au contact des compositeurs italiens de l’Ottocento”.

    “Mr. Mironov possesses an exquisitely supple, lyrical, almost flowery voice and his singing was perfectly beautiful on Saturday evening.”
    Terry Ponnick, Communities Digital News, 10 May 2015

    “Isabella’s romantic counterpart, the prince charming, is Don Ramiro, sung on Saturday night by Russian tenor Maxim Mironov who certainly won me over with his clear, light voice that matched Leonard for letting the ornamental passages shine throughout the score. Mironov was also convincing as the disguised prince who switches places with his valet to see if a young lady is truly worthy of becoming his princess.”
    Jeffrey Walker, Broadway Opera World, 11 May 2015

    “Particularly pleasing was the Prince, or Don Ramiro, of Maxim Mironov, a tall tenor with a gentle whitish sound in a most respectable company debut.”

    Anne Midgette, Washington Post, 10 May 2015

    “Mironov was splendid as the Prince and his bel canto tenor voice proved a model for this style of singing with its rapidly ascending and descending ornamentation and beautiful high notes. No wonder he is considered one of the best Rossini tenors of his generation!”
    Susan Galbraith, DC Theatre Scene, 12 May 2015
