Erfahrungsbericht von Vladimir Potansky:

"Dear Mozarteum! Dear Professors! Dear Colleagues and Friends! 

Thank you for your support! We were far from you and busy working all days long but we felt your support that helped us to do our best on the stage! Here are so many wonderful emotions inside me that I want to share them with you! Wow!!! It is a Great Work!!! Really Great!!!

Thanks a lot to the conductor Simone Young, to the director Karoline Gruber, to the choreographer Stella Zannou, the orchestra, the choir, the mimans, decorators, costumiers, visagisten, light artists, stage workers, to all my colleagues-singers and the whole team of the theater! WE DID IT!!! We all were rewarded with a great storm of applause at the Premiere! I want to thank firstly this great woman, an outstanding person, our director Karoline Gruber, who believed in me and invited me to take part in this wonderful performance! Special thanks to Julia Antonovich and Alexander Vitlin! Thank you for everything! I would like to thank my great professors, who teach me and share their knowledge and experience with me! They are: my lovely Diva of the World Opera Stage and my Professor of vocal - Michèle Crider, my dearest Professor, a genious musician - Professor Gernot Sahler (conductor), my dearest Professor, a very bright and talented person - Professor Alexander von Pfeil (director), my wonderful concertmasters-pianists, a lot of them and of course my previous Professors who helped me to grow as a musician! Thank you all for being in my life, in my heart and in the soul! I love you all! And I love Her Highness Opera! 

I am proud that I can prove in a dignified way on the stage of Wiener Staatsoper in Sergey Prokofiev's opera "The Gambler" by Fedor Dostoevsky, playing the part of the First Croupier that I'm a student of Mozarteum! HOORAY!!!"
