Ivo Stanchev  Bass


Ivo Stanchev latela knew great successes as RAMFIS in “Aida” at Teatro Principal de Palma de Mallorca, as ZABULÓN in “La dogaresa” and as CANO in “Juan José” under the musical direction by Miguel Gómez Martinez at the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid. Here he appeared also as PASCUAL in the Spanish Opera “Marina” by Emilio Arrieta and as SALIERI in Rimsky Korsakov’s Oper “Mozart und Salieri”. The reviews reacted enthusiastically:

“ Ivo Stánchev builds an expressive Salieri: weighed, reflexive and tormented in a credible way. Vocally he exhibits a line of great refinement, with a wide and polished vocal range grounded on a subtle low register, which he displays with controlled power and a fleshy and surround colour. Without a doubt, he gave the most believable character and musically the most interesting.” 24 april 2017, Codalario. com

“the other Bass, Cano… sung by Ivo Stanchev, a most pleasant surprise. The Bulgarian Base presents himself with a round, warm and beautiful voice. With a perfect colour of voice and musically gifted, he gives the character an unattended specific weight.” Operaclick.com 12.2.2017
