Reviews

“Oleg Tsibulko was a mellifluous and dignified Banquo” (The Telegraph, July 2017) 

“Oleg Tsibulko was heartbreaking as Banco, his endlessly generous bass filling the role with lyrical power, projecting a compassionate moral integrity as moving as it was doomed.” (Bachtrack, July 2017) 

“The young Moldovan bass Oleg Tsibulko made a stylish Banco, his distinctive timbre reminding me of a young Sergei Leiferkus. Tsibulko sang the role with an elegant sense of line, real nobility and suitable intensity. This was one of those performances that made you regret that Banco died so early. This was Tsibulko's UK debut, and he is certainly a singer that I look forward to hearing again.” (PlanetHugill, July 2017)
