VERDI - LA TRAVIATA - GIORGIO GERMONT, GLYNDEBOURNE TOURING FESTIVAL

 
A man certainly in and of the world is Russian baritone Roman Burdenko’s Giorgio Germont, an impassioned father pursuing his family’s interests with a direct vocal force that serves to emphasise the isolation of the young lovers. His reception at the end of the first night suggests that he has certainly won the audience’s hearts.

Russian baritone Roman Burdenko, credible as representing an older generation and delivering authentic bel canto vigour as Germont senior; his duet with Violetta in the second act is a real expressive highlight.
–      George Hall, The Guardian
 
As his father, Roman Burdenko exudes a gravitas of voice and bearing that belie his comparatively tender years (according to his Mariinsky biog, he's just 30); the realisation that he's intervened in a situation far more complex than he originally thought appears to come rather earlier than usual, and he sustains and develops it with conviction.
–      Katherine Cooper, What’s on Stage
 
Roman Burdenko's considerably aged-up Germont makes a powerful impression with his dark, firm baritone from the moment he enters. This father-figure maintains a subtle psychological grip without resorting to obvious bullying.
