Golden hits of all genres of vocal music performed by soloists of the Bolshoi Theater of Russia.
The opera baritone is the voice with the richest timbre, the true embodiment of masculinity. Whatever character is embodied by this voice on stage is always a strong personality: brilliant torero Escamillo, charming Don Juan, charming and witty Figaro, noble Rodrigo, passionate Mizgir… Even the villains Scarpia and Iago cannot be denied charisma. The passion of the hero-baritone can lead to the death of many a person, sometimes even his own self, but it always burns with fire.
This voice is multi-faceted and diverse. In opera, it is allocated to the roles of friends and brothers, fathers and rejected lovers… However, many hero-lovers in the opera are also sung by the baritone. In the brilliant classic operettas, the hero is always a baritone: The embodiment of elegance and aristocracy is Count Danilo, the mysterious Mr. X and Rajami who is ready to give up his title for love.
A gentle timbre without admixture of tenor sweetness and at the same time, the velvet low register without “evil” and harsh bass coloring, this voice has the capability to deliver brilliantly successful and passionate Neapolitan songs, and soulful romances. The most famous popular music hits are usually performed by baritones.
