"...Jesus and the basse solo are played by the same singer: It is a shame that the principal actor of the passion cannot be differentiated from the one that comments it. However, Victor Sicard simply needs to open his mouth in any of both roles and all our regrets get evaporated. He is not even 30 yet and has an impressiove and eclectic CV. Trained at the Jardin des Voix de William Christie, possesing a rich metal in the voice, warm and bighty sound, this French singer gives, in an exemplary German, an extreme attention to the word (without falling in the trap of word analysis). Therefore he composes a Savior all modeled and inflected, deeply human ; while his arias – Eilt, ihr angefocht'nen Seelen especially – shows off an accomplished technic."

Jacques Duffourg Müller, BaroquiadeS, Août 2016

"... the moving performance of the basse, Victor Sicard, impressive of precision and with a round voice in the Golgatha aria."

Suzanne Gervais, la lettre du musicien, Août 2016

"...And the character of Jesus (Victor Sicard, who also sings the arias) manages to escape from the usual religious tradition too live his lines, well served by a noble and ample voice." 

Jacques Bonnaure, La lettre du musicien, Mars 2016

"... Memorable interpretation from the baritone Victor Sicard who offers an all touchy singing, spiritoso."

Sabino Pena Arcia, Classique News, Mars 2016

"Solid and totally idiomatic, Victor Sicard's Christ reveals himself at ease also in the bass arias."

Frédéric Norac, Musicologie.org, Mars 2016

"… his baritone voice is fantastic. His ornements sounded masterfully well. Also, he was firm in his character."

Rudolf Hunnik, Opéra Magazine (Hollandais), Janvier 2016

"...And Victor Sicard makes from the baritone part of Ormonte, an experience of first class singing"

Werner Häußner, Der Westen, Janvier 2016

"...Every so often when attending an opera one comes across a young artist who shows immense promise and those are the moments that really make opera-going worthwhile.  That happened today with Victor Sicard’s Ormonte.  His is a bright, youthful baritone with a fabulous technique.  In his Act 1 aria he gave us some exhilarating gravity-defying ornamentation.  His diction is impeccable and there’s that rare musicality to his singing that cannot be taught.  He is undoubtedly one to watch."

"...In la Galerie des Glaces, la Cérémonie des turcs, animated par Victor Sicard, singer with an incredible enthusiasm, is a moment of antology."
Thierry Hillériteau, Le Figaro, Juin 2015


"...the best part was certainly during the «Cérémonie des Turcs» from the Bourgeois Gentilhomme, where 

Victor Sicard and the male voices from the choir of the Arts Florissants were superb, playing on

onomatopeias, shouts, gestures, throwing some terrifying Ioc!"

J. Strauss: Die Fledermaus, Linz Landestheater


"...Dr Falke's revenge well worked out finds in Victor Sicard an exceptionnal interpret who does not only possess something touching, a beautiful baritone voice, but also inside him a continuous boiling anger that develops throughout the whole piece with a climax on his "friend liiiieber" Gabriel. Falke was carefully controlled, cleverly executed, well played and in all serenity but also with full sense - can shine."

Le Jardin de Monsieur Rameau: Jardin des Voix/Les Arts Florissants, William Christie.


"... Of The six interprets, the one that gave the best impression was the French baritone Victor Sicard, with a bellissim and noble voice for an outstanding performance of the aria "Monstre Affreux" from Dardanus, creating one of the most magical moments of the evening. We wish him a good career that we will follow attentively"

Hugo Cachero, Codalario.com, October 2013


"...Victor Sicard delighted us with sad meditation. The most impressive aria was the last of a series of melodramatic baritone  arias, "Monstre Affreux", harmonically expressive and demanding modern bel canto singing"

P. Pospelov, Vedomosti, October 2013



"...Ms Renard and Mr Sicard were particularly outstanding"

Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times, April 2o13



"... Full of character, I found the warm baritone of Victor Sicard arresting in Anténor’s aria “Monstre affreux, monstre redoutable” from Rameau’s Dardanus"

Nicolas Nguyen, Bachtrack, October 2013


"...But it is the two low male voices, maybe for the fact that French is their mother tongue, who gave the biggest impression of all. Cyril Costanzo and  Victor Sicard will be without any doubt among the big performers of the future."  

Pierre Degott, resmusica.com8/4/2013



"...Victor Sicard earned bravos for his performance of "Monstre affreux", from Rameau's Dardanus, and was an engaging Silvandre in André Campra's "l'Europe Gallante""

Stephen Raskauskas, Bachtrack, October 2013



"His Campra gets our attention and his Rameau awakes our curiosity: we expect doubtlessly more anguished accents, another urgency from Antenor, but, beyond his enveloping and warm baritone voice, Victor Sicard masters this intrisically French eloquence"

Bernard Schreuders, forumopera.com, April 2013
