"Young Russian tenor Sergey Romanovsky immediately sets the bar high in the fiendish role of Antenore...his villain is dashing and devilishly accomplished."
"Romanovsky, darkly handsome and slender on his house debut, is something of a find. His voice projects with sweet luminous tone that will endear him to casting departments"
Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph
"You sense the mutual attraction from the outset. [Romanovsky] hides desire behind a rather lofty reserve, and obsession lurks tellingly beneath his gloriously voiced ardour."
Tim Ashley, The Guardian

Don Carlos, Opéra de Lyon
Opéra de Lyon, March 2018
From his opening poetic recitative, it was evident we were in for something special from Sergey Romanovsky's Carlos. His plangent tenor, light and lyrical, was perfectly weighted.
Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack, 18 March 2018
Well schooled in the bel canto repertoire and possessed of a fresh-sounding lyric tenor, Sergey Romankovsky conveyed Carlos’s youthful impetuosity and vulnerability while singing handsomely and projecting well

La bohème, Dutch National Opera
Dutch National Opera, December 2017
... listening to him was like being transported to a bygone age of tenors that prized beauty over heft. His sweet timbre, quick vibrato, and unerring instinct for Italianate musical inflection made him a vocally irresistible Rodolfo.

Le siège de Corinthe, Rossini Opera Festival
Rossini Opera Festival, Pesaro / August 2017
Tenor Sergey Romanovsky was a wonderful surprise. His top range came easily and strong, even the notes above high C, and, at the same time, his middle voice was powerful and gave solid support to his characterization of the Greek warrior Néoclès. His great aria of the third act was greeted with a warm applause, and he received the most enthusiastic cheer at curtain call.
