"Vladimir Chernov ...made the most of his supporting role, turning it into a standout performance, ...he sang with a chocolaty baritone... when he entered onstage, he at once became a major presence. His acting caught our attention because he created a character, yet he didn't overwhelm us or overpower the others onstage. He was truly a distinguished Capulet vocally and visually"

---Carol Jean Delmar, Opera Theater Ink.

"As Capulet, Vladimir Chernov becomes a charming host who, remarkably, seems to be welcoming us all to the opera,..."

---David Gregson, Opera West.
