«Laid-back, with soft and plastic movements, cynically good-humoured, yet not at all simple. This is a flamboyant Tomsky interpreted by Viktor Korotich. Vocal expression with a distinct volumetric pronounciation are excellent. OperaNews Вальяжен, раскованно-пластичен, цинично-добродушен, но совсем не прост колоритнейший Томский Виктора Коротича. Звучание голоса и ясное объёмное слово просто превосходны.»
OPERANEWS.RU (2018)
«Que Korotych s’approprie magistralement Figaro ne fait pas davantage débat. Le baryton ukrainien s’offre le luxe d’un timbre de baryton-basse aux phrasés élégants et surtout la verve et la faconde d’un comédien hors pair. Il rayonne littéralement, aussi bien vocalement que spirituellement dans un « Largo al factotum » qui soulève les ovations. Sa rouerie est d’autant plus jubilatoire qu’il en tire les ficelles bouffes mélodramatiques avec un art consommé de la parodie et de l’ironie douce-amère. Il en fait en filigrane ce double du compositeur, dupe de rien, toujours maître de la situation, et génial manipulateur. Et suprême talent il y parvient certes par des mimiques irrésistibles, des attaques d’une franchise jamais prises en défaut mais surtout par des accents inimitables, un contrôle du souffle et mille nuances qui font le sel de sa voix, y compris dans les passages de haute virtuosité.»»

«Оперный певец Виктор Коротич, дебютировавший на сцене театра «Зазеркалье» с партией Грязного в «Царской невесте», получил высшую награду – оперную премию «Онегин». Добавим, «Царская невеста» ранее была удостоена Высшей театральной премии Петербурга «Золотой софит». Тогда награда была вручена в трёх номинациях: «Лучший оперный спектакль», Виктору Коротичу за «Лучшую мужскую роль в оперном спектакле»»
