„Onegin is one of my favourite roles. I will never forget my debut at the Novaya-Opera – naturally as Onegin.“ - Vasily Ladyuk
Vasily Ladyuk has a bright, velvety baritone voice which is rare. Critics emphasize the lush timbre, his great elegance and solid technique. This allows him to place effectively sustained notes, and the rhetorical and dramatic shaping of his roles, whose inner workings he illuminates with sensitivity and nuance. With these qualities Vasily Ladyuk has made a name for himself especially as an interpreter of great roles of the Russian repertoire such as Andrei Shchelkalov (Boris Godunov), Robert (Iolanta) or Prince Yeletski (Queen of Spades).
One of his most important role portraits is "Eugene Onegin" in Tchaikovsky's opera of the same name, with which he also made his debut at the New Opera (Novaya Opera) in Moscow in 2004. Soon he also sang as a permanent guest soloist at the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre as well as the St. Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre.
In addition to Russian opera, Ladyuk also sings roles by Mozart, Strauss, Rossini, Donizetti, Verdi, Puccini and Leoncavallo, and in the year of his Bolshoi debut he also sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Since then he has performed in many leading houses worldwide - including La Scala in Milan, the Houston Grand Opera, the Opéra National in Paris and the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. In addition to appearances in productions by renowned directors such as Dmitri Tcherniakov. Ladyuk regularly appears in concert formats in which he likes to push the boundaries of the classical repertoire.
Vasily Ladyuk first completed a degree in choral conducting at the renowned Moscow Academy of Choral Art. From 2001 he studied solo singing with Dmitry Vdovin and won the "Concurs Tenor Viñas" in Barcelona in 2004, the competition Operalia by Plácido Domingo one year later and the opera competition in Shizuoka, Japan.
