Critics

Der Ukrainer Taras Shtonda, der dritte Gast, lehrt als Hagen alle das Fürchten, wird mit seinem grandios starken und profunden Bass zur Inkarnation des Bösen.

``Kiels Spiel mit dem Feuer`` - Arndt Voß - nmz.de Oper Kiel - Götterdämmerung - Season: 2017/18

Als Hagen stellt sich Taras Shtonda in Kiel vor und avanciert trotz der absolut bösen Rolle zum Publikumsliebling des Abends. Mit rabenschwarzem Bass zeichnet er den grimmen Albensohn, dessen einziges Ziel ist, in den Besitz des Rings zu kommen.
