Victor Sgarbi has a lot of fun with his role as The Devil and, yes, he probably does have the best tunes - Gary Naylor - Broadway World - Aug/23
Then comes the splendid entrance of Victor Sgarbi, purporting to be a priest. Something about Sgarbi’s brimming energy signals he’s not who he says he is, as he unpacks his crucifix and chalice from his suitcase with all the aplomb of a travelling salesman. And indeed it transpires that he’s Demonio, preying on the dying to try to win their immortal soul for Satan. Michael Walling’s direction makes a lot of the wonderfully surreal action that follows the discovery of Demonio’s true identity, which ends with the nurse and doctor trying to garrotte him with the line from Loyola’s drip. It’s somewhere between a medieval mystery place and pantomime. The Review Hub - Jane Darcy - Aug/23
"In excellent voice, Victor Sgarbi relishing his role as his character's passions raise." (Germont) - King's Head Theatre - La Traviata - British Theatre - Oct/18.
"Victor Sgarbi gives a sturdy performance. I thought there was a visible conflict in Sgarbi’s eyes as he convinced Violetta to leave Elijah. It gave an extra dimension to the part of Sinclair, making him seem like a man in complex situations rather than your traditional evil and domineering father figure." King's Head Theatre - Traviata - Frank McHugh - Arthurs Seat - Oct/18
"The ensemble numbers were rock solid and Victor Sgarbi as MP Sinclair (Germont) is a reliable slimeball - King's Head Theatre - La Traviata - Culture Whisper - Oct/18
"Victor Sgarbi blusters his way through as an MP driven by personal ambition that he dresses up with shreds of self-deluding guff about “making a difference”" -La Traviata - King's Head Theatre - Plays to See - Oct/18

"Victor Sgarbi as a charming Escamillo gives us a matador with a bold baritone presence" Mary Nguyen, LDN Card, 7/7/2014.
"As the brutal Polyphemus, Victor Sgarbi displayed a strong presence and his aria “O ruddier than the cherry” was deliciously executed." Nahoko Gotoh, Bachtrack, 5/11/2013
"Victor Sgarbi’s Polyphemus was elevated to more than a farcical villain and his bullish harassment of Galatea was even uncomfortable to watch. The dramatic context was there but the music remained the focus; a perfect marriage of the two aspects of the work." Joe Richomme, Fringe Opera, 9/11/2013
