Lucia di Lammermoor – Opera de Lille
Roman Burdenko was a powerful Enrico, his large, rich baritone dominating the stage.
Graeme Feggetter, Opera
Falstaff – Glyndebourne Festival
Roman Burdenko makes an outstanding UK debut as Ford: we know he’s obsessive from his meticulously neat cabbage patch, but the focused baritone he projects in the jealousy monologue amply confirms it.
John Allison, The Telegraph
Il trovatore – Lyric Opera of Kansas City
Baritone Roman Burdenko was the conniving Count di Luna, powerful in full voice.
Libby Hanssen, Kansas City Star
Lucia di Lammermoor – Palm Beach Opera
Best of the men was Roman Burdenko, an elegant Enrico.
Jean-François Lejeune, Opera News
But getting back to the pluses, Burdenko made a fine and eventually quite pitiable Enrico. His rich toned voice is never forced and his moments with his sister are dramatic and beautifully sung.
Jeff Haller, ConcertoNet.com
Baritone Roman Burdenko was a very fine Enrico, with a virile, flexible voice in which the character’s menace and ambition could be clearly felt. This is a large role, but such an unsympathetic one that the singer who performs it rarely gets enough credit for carrying it off. But Burdenko was a rock, and in his solo arias (Cruda, funesta smania) and his duet work with Alejandres, he showed off a voice of considerable, impressive quality.

Simon Boccanegra – Opéra de Strasbourg
Burdenko’s scenic presence, his powerful but richly timbred voice was a very pleasant surprise. He is capable to make the mood swing of Paolo Albiani in Act III audible, without resorting to verismo tricks.
Autre belle réussite, le Paolo de Roman Burdenko. Très beau baryton, à la voix puissante, offrant de solides aigus mais aussi un grave consistant, il sera sans doute plus tard un très beau Simon.
