Review
GALA CONCERT and EUGENE ONEGIN at Krasnoyarsk Dmitri Hvorostovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre, 2017

And in the final concert, the audience discovered the sonorous lyric tenor Tomas Pavilionis from the Lithuanian city of Kaunas. The very next day after the closing of the festival, he had a huge success in the role of Lensky in Eugene Onegin, captivating the audience with the harmony of vocal and external data, subtle musicality and artistry.

A special reason, also, to see this Onegin performance was to listen ot Toma Pavilionis, who sung his first Lensky, and did it very well. This young tenor has the voice to this kind of lyricdramatic roles, and his development through Alfredo in La Traviata, Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, Count Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia, in Kornetas and now as Lensky in Eugene Onegin is going in the right good and positive direction. He has the beauty in his voice, he has the power and the pianissimo, a very good sound all the way, his last aria was a hit in the performance. He play well the roles, he is moving excellently on the stage and we trusted in his figure. A very strong and handsome first Lensky. Bravo.

We were very impressed with Tomas Pavilionis as Nemorino, a demanding singing role, where some of his vocal parts are very well known sung by some of the most famous tenors in the world, inclusive Una furtiva lagrima. Pavilionis succeeded very well, and received loud bravo from the audience, that he deserves. He has a great stage present, he is young, tall, handsome and he acts with humor, and when needed drama and tragedy, and I feel I trust his figure. And last, but not the least, he sings beautifully, not only in his recitatives, arias and duets, but also convincing in all his playing and cooperation in ensembles, and with the very good choir.
