Quentin’s other stage performances included his role-début as Don Ottavio in Mozart’s Don Giovanni (MdW Theater, Vienna).
On the concert platform, his repertoire encompasses Bach cantatas, major Romantic works (Saint-Saëns’ Requiem, Dvořák's Stabat Mater, and Puccini’s Messa di Gloria), and modern masterpieces such as Stravinsky’s Les Noces and Gilbert Amy's Missa Cum Jubilo (Auditorium de Lyon under the baton of François-Xavier Roth). He also sang recitals in Kiev, in the Philharmonic Hall in Kharkiv, and at the Coliseum of El Jem, Tunisia.
During the 2017/18 season he made his début at the Theater an der Wien as the Amalekite in Handel’s Saul, directed by Claus Guth and conducted by Laurence Cummings. He returns at the Theater an der Wien the following season to sing Hoffmann in Offenbach's Les Contes d’Hoffmann presented at Kammeroper Wien. The 2018/19 season also marked his debut at the Opéra de Lyon with the role of Gonzalve in Ravel's L'heure espagnole, conducted by Jonathan Stockhammer and staged by James Bonas.
Last season, Quentin sang the title-role in Gounod’s Faust and Leonhard Mälzel in the world premiere of Tscho Theissing’s Genia at Kammeroper Wien, and the 3. Jude in Strauss’ Salome at Theater an der Wien directed by Nikolaus Habjan and conducted by Leo Hussain. He joined the New Year’s Eve concert as a soloist at the Warsaw Philharmonic for an Offenbach program with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir under Joseph R. Olefirowicz.
