"[A] strong baritone completed the cast……Krassen Karagiozov.”
Anthony Tommasini, New York Times
“As Count Almaviva, baritone Krassen Karagiozov was excellent, his voice mellow and burnished, his character a despicably self-important man, but one capable of reflection — and funny.”
Mercury News 2010
“Baritone Krassen Karagiozov... sang with ardor and dramatic flair.”
Scott MacClelland, Metro San Jose, CA, February 10 2009

William Thomas Walker, CVNC, Charlotte, NC, 2008
"The true male lead is Alfredo's father, Giorgio, whose music calls for pages of smooth, powerful singing. Krassen Karagiozov's confidently supported, attractive baritone brought out much of the part's beauties, especially in the aria 'Di Provenza il mar'."
Roy C. Dicks, Raleigh News and Observer, October 22, 2007
"The man who gave a bravura performance in La Traviata was the magnificent baritone, Krassen Karagiozov, as Giorgio Germont, father of Alfredo. Later... Karagiozov demonstrated in two great arias all the qualities one listens for in an excellent baritone; vocal strength and authority, beauty of tone, great range, and the ability to utilize all these strengths to sustain his part in the drama."
Martha A. Fawbush, CVNC, October 19, 2007

Roy C. Dicks, Raleigh News and Observer, April 2007

Roy C. Dicks, Raleigh Observer, October 2005
"CVNC has frequently chronicled the artistic growth of veteran Fletcher scholar Krassen Karagiozov. His firm baritone and engaging impersonation were welcome in the role of the sailor Silvano."
William Thomas Walker, CVNC, October 2005
"Krassen Karagiozov, a baritone from Bulgaria, was almost too believable as the lust-driven Tarquinius. From his hair-trigger temper in the Roman camp to his barely contained passion when he sought hospitality from Lucretia, he was a threatening presence.
William Thomas Walker, CVNC, May 2004
"The best singing in the show benefits either from power and stylistic refinement, with Don Giovanni (Krassen Karagiozov)... shining brightest in those terms”
Ken Keufel, Winston-Salem Journal, January 2004
"The smooth, even baritone of Krassen Karagiozov was a wonder and a delight, as was his extremely self-confident and self-absorbed portrayal of Don Giovanni”
William Thomas Walker, CVNC, January 2004
