"The greatest enjoyment for the public were the soloists, especially the principal soloist, Nikita Storojev. Every time he starts to sing, we hear the same quality of sound as the greatest Boris’: Christov, Gyaurov, Nesterenko. One cannot demand the same dark and bearded voice from the Hungarian singers. Storojev’s performance alone already makes the production exceptional..."
~ Miclos Fay, Nepszabadsag 05.04.10

"The evenings highlight was an appearance by Nikita Storojev, a Russian operatic bass whose noble and resonant voice was thoroughly captivating in arias from 'Eugene Onegin,' 'Boris Godunov' and 'Ruslan and Ludmilla.' Storojevs familiarity with this music was ever apparent, his voice distinguished by an effortless delivery, rhythmic flexibility and a rich burnished quality throughout his considerable range."

Nikita Storojev . Brings a fine, impressively macho bass to the role. With his beautifully resonant depth of tone, he manages to act as terrifying as the tyrant Attila presumably was. ~ The Star Tonight - critique for Verdis Attila,Pretoria, South Africa

"Essential to the vocal and dramatic balance of the piece was Nikita Storojevs bass voice. The Russian sang both the role of Monterone, the nobleman who curses Rigoletto for mocking his family dishonor, and the creepy assassin, Sparafucile. He was outstanding in altering his vocal style from the majestic declarative utterances of the ill-fated nobleman to the sinister deal-making of Sparafucile. ~ Palm Beach Daily News - critique for Verdis Rigoletto, Palm Beach Opera

More Russian than Tchaikovsky...Great dramatic presence, unlimited shades of nuance, Nikita Storojev has a sumptuous bass voice" ~ Rheinische Post, Düsseldorf - critique for recital of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov songs, Düsseldorf

a magnificent low, and a very elastic high sound he can guide his voice with the evenness of an instrument; only seldom but very effectively does he color the sound of a specific word, or even just the ending of a word, as an expressive refinement. His interpretation skills are an absolute second nature for him. It is not insignificant to mention with these circumstances that Nikita Storojev can sing anything anywhere with pure intonation, and with an articulation that not only impresses the singability of the Russian language, but also speaks for the interpretation of character. Without any type of translation, the songs and arias he sang were completely understandable purely from the expression of music. ~ Rheinische Post, Düsseldorf - critique for solo recital with piano, Düsseldorf Opera
