|Staatsoper Saarbrücken – Ophelia - GERTRUDE
|Valda Wilson as the first Ophelia and the marvellous Liudmilla Lokaichuk as Gertude (Claudius spouse) were brilliant on a very high level, without diminuishing the other protagonist’s performances...
|OPUS Magazin, Kurz Bohr, 14. Mai 29023
|…and Liudmilla Lokaichuck as the hussy Gertrude and bitchy coloratura diva were particularly outstanding.
|Staatstheater Saarbrücken - Alcina – MORGANA
|Right from the beginning of the opera Liudmilla Lokaichuk as Morgana surprised with her sparkling soprano voice, wonderful coloraturas and a youthful whirling stage presence. She managed in keeping up this level throughout the entire opera.
|Das Opernglas 2/2022, M. Fiedler
|Then it is Liudmilla Lokaichuk who is particularly sparkling , in her entire vocal and acting flexibility, in the beauty of her voice and her talent. She succeeds in captivating the audience.. No time to waste, just go there.
|Opus Magazin, Friedrich Spangemacher Dezember 2021
|...for example when Liudmilla Lokaichuk sings Morgana- then the entire performance sparkles and twinkles and the true baroque feeling arises…
|SR2 Kulturradio, Barbara Grech
|Staatstheater Saarbrücken – Ariadne aud Naxos – ZERBINETTA
|Liudmilla Lokaichuck plays her character with the right dose of overexcitement and airs and graces, without neglecting the differentiated tones of her superficially simple character.
|…and wouldn’t have flashed without the fantastic singers, above all Liudmila Lokaichuck’s ravishing Zerbinetta with crystal-clear coloraturas, wit and sex appeal.
|Götz Tieme, Opernwelt 11/21
|The ensemble is thoroughly brilliant, but Ludmilla Lokaichuck as Zerbinetta outshines them all ( …) a real triumph!
|Saartext – Oliver Sandmeyer
|Liudmilla Lokaichuck sings her figure with a flexible soprano voice and just the right amount of overexcitement and capricious airs, without renouncing the differentiated tones of her superficially easy character.
|SR2 Karsten Neuschwender
|Opernhaus Halle – Don Giovanni – DONNA ANNA
|Sensationally brilliant was Liudmila Lokaichuk: spotless in the high registers, utterly convincing in her dramatic art, which seems to come out of her innermost depths and with a beautifully colored soprano voice in each register and cantilena. Her huge aria in the second act was literally breath-taking.
|Staatstheater Cottbus – Effi Briest -EFFI BRIEST
|Mainly due to the wonderful Liudmila Lokaichuk. The soprano, who was born in the Russian Angarsk, was a member of the Cottbus State Theatre ensemble until last year and is now a permanent member of the Opera house Halle. Matthus knows her since the beginning of her career in Rheinsberg. He already wrote the leading role in “Grete Minde” for her and when he became the opportunity to write an opera on “Effi Briest”, he immediately had her in mind and composed the music tailored to her voice. ‘Every singer dreams of such a role’ she enthused and exceeded all expectations. She is a paragon of happiness and joy of life, as she is sitting on her swing as a 17 year old girl and plays with her friends. But soon the serious side of life begins and her mother tells her she is to marry a much older man. From scene to scene she becomes more restrained and shy until finally she crashes as a result of the severe morals of society. ‘I prefer roles that I can sound out psychologically’ she says. In the part of Effi Briest she demonstrates with which dedication and perfection she fills the character with life.
|Opernglas 12/2019 - J. Gahre
|Also Ljudmilla Lokaichuk, the real star of the evening, not only sings fabulous tones, she is also an amazing actress. Her portrayal of a young, cheerful girl that develops into a failed woman is just magnificent.
|But the actual high female voice is of course Effi’s. Liudmila Lokaichuk, in whose throat the part seems to be composed – an old opera tradition since Händel’s days – is both vocally, actingly and figuratively an exemplary Effi. Anyone that has seen the Eastern German TV movie, feels reminded of Angelica Domröse. Both vocally and scenically Lokaichuk exactly captures the fine line between youthful naivety and impartiality of a young girl on the one side and her anxiety and dependency as a wife on the other.
|As the ideal-typical Effi, she starts with girlish naturalness, light-foodedly outshining her surroundings in order to credibly traversing the entire Effi life in quick motion.
|This opera contains no melodies, on which one can cruise along leisurely. It only contains short musical compactions, which must vocally and scenically be brought to the point and brought to life.
This is best done by Liudmila Lokaichuk: She is a refreshingly vivacious, bewitchingly loving and deeply sad, suffering Effi, who convinces with every word and tone. One would truly like to protect her from the merciless men and save her from the hard-hearted society.
|Opernhaus Halle – Ariadne auf Naxos - ZERBINETTA
|Liudmila Lokaichuk as Zerbinetta not only offers the compulsory brilliant coloratura fireworks, she also intensifies the role in the often underestimated prelude by applying a secure centre, a solidly well guided voice and a melodious-expressive tone.
|Online Merker, Werner Häußner
|A real lucky choice in every respect is Liudmila Lokaichuk’s Zerbinetta.- It is a long time since we have heard such breathtakingly secure and light coloraturas in Halle. She became a special applause right away.
|I can’t remember to have ever seen such a fountain of coloraturas and sex appeal in Halle. But she would just as well succeed on other stages.

|The other woman was portrayed by Ludmila Lokaichuk. Her soprano voice is clear and bright…
|Der Neue Merker 1/2018 Dana Herzowa
|Ludmila Lokaichuk, the Portuguese rival, was hailed for her love to Vasco.
|Cottbus State Theatre - Barbe-Bleu - FLEURETTE
|And princess Fleurette really brought in a touch of French opera bouffe vibes. The most Parisian voice of the evening comes from Russia and is called Liudmila Lokaichuk. The soprano has already won twice various prizes at the International Contest of the Chamber Opera in Rheinsberg. Congratulations to the Cottbus House for engaging this artist!
|Liudmila Lokaichuk sings Princess Hermia (alias Fleurette)with a wonderfully appealing soprano timbre...

|Fontane Festival Neuruppin - GRETE MINDE
|The 28 year old, slender Liudmila Lokaichuk portrayed Grete with so much power and rage both as an actor and as a singer that the audience was torn between the feeling of taking her in once’s arms and keeping out of her way to avoid her rage.
