Manon Lescaut. Guest Artist.


Now he will perform at the Bolshoi as Des Grieux. Polyakov is well acknowledged as ‘Puccini’ singer; alongside with Des Grieux, he is often engaged in part of Calaf in Turandot and Cavardossi in Tosca. His performance in Manon Lescaut (The Latvian National Opera and The Royal Swedish Opera) caused warm welcome of both music lovers and critics: “Russian tenor Sergey Polyakov was an excellent Des Grieux, singing with rounded Italianate tone and making the most of his set pieces…” (Seen and Heard International, 01.10.2017),“…Sergey Polyakov displayed a tenore robusto of brilliance and power” (, 22.09.2017).
