And then there was «Gethsemane» and I forgot how to breathe. Because it was performed differently, shrill and with tears to be heard in his voice. But also with a desperately-demanding «Show me», laced with endless fatigue. Probably for the first time «What you started!» sounded with such condemnation and even dull anger. A quiet «no» before Judas' kiss finished me off. It was the point of no return. Only humility and pain remained after it. Yaroslav has done something incredible.
Yana Yukhacheva about Yaroslav's performance as Jesus Christ in the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar
The scene with the Pieces of Silver is probably the strongest and most terrifying of Act I. The way Yaroslav performed it was incredibly vivid: the way he recoiled in horror from the pouch with coins, falling a his feet, and how he stalled and stretched his trembling hand were more than significant. And the horror from the understanding what catastrophe he caused, awareness the moment he finally lifts the pouch, cuts to the very core.
Elena Koroleva about Yaroslav's performance as Judas Iscariot in the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar

I love the way this tells a story without words!
Margaret Weiss, author of the Dragonlance book series. About the promo video of Yaroslav's premiere in the role of Raistlin Majere, the character she created.
There was never such a literal understanding of the musical texts before. Each word was pronounced with the proper meaning. It gets scary sometimes. Yes, it is impossible to fall in love with such a Raistlin, yes, «love is a death», and after watching Yaroslav's version you will be convinced that this is a tragedy and not a second-rate fantasy.
Anton Kruglov, composer // Vox Populi
Yaroslav is very strong. It takes tremendous strength to play this. But that was cruel of him as well, to show such strength in that performance, which proclaims the fall from the last step of the at once collapsed stairway. While watching the performance, you also feel yourself fallen and destroyed. You are pressed into a chair, your entire being is folded into a small dense lump somewhere in your core. And it's hard to get up. And no foothold to be found...
Artist VseLennaya shares her impressions about the show and the role of Raistlin performed by Yaroslav.

It's a miracle, because I was fortunate to hear and see the closing performance of the season and the most incredible Benedetto. A person, an actor, the magical Yaroslav, whose performance... no, life! on the stage of the Operetta Theater strikes with new vigor every time, as his Benedetto is always different. On Friday he made quite an impression - for the first time watching this musical I could not hold back my tears.

It was incredible! Everyone's tragedies played out in front of me in 1,5 hours. Yaroslav Bayarunas as Alyosha absolutely blew my mind! All that waverings, hesitations, torments in his gaze and the goosebumps from his aria! What a spectacular debut!!!
