REVIEWS 1987/1996

 

 

LA CENA DELLE BEFFE - Wexford

"Fabio Armiliato, another gifted and very presentable tenor, from Genoa this time, made a splendid Giannetto. His voice, combining lyricism with dramatic strength, coped easily with the orchestra tumult."

  J. Brophy  - IRISH PRESS - October 24, 1987

"Both parts of Giannetto and Neri present newcomers to Wexford and the brilliance of Fabio Armiliato and Luis Giron-May is almost unprecedented in this festival context."

EVENING PRESS  - October 23, 1987

"Giannetto, un role que Gigli admirait énormément, trouve en Fabio Armiliato un interprète à la voix ferme et percutante."

Elizabeth Forbes - OPERA INTERNATIONAL - Janvier 1988

I VESPRI SICILIANI - Barletta

"Il giovane tenore Fabio Armiliato, voce fresca e squillante, ha dato accenti appassionati al personaggio di Arrigo. Molti applausi anche a scena aperta."

F. Chievo - LA GAZZETTA DEL MEZZOGIORNO - November 21, 1988

DON CARLO - Antwerp

"The young tenor Fabio Armiliato was superb in the title role, all the fraught ardor and morbidezza evident in every note,his climatic phrases pinning you to the back of your seat, his acting immensely affecting. One hopes this wonderful talent will resist singing too much too soon."

J. McCann  - OPERA   - September  1990

"Fabio Armiliato (don Carlo) possède toutes les qualités (clarté, puissance,justess et coleurs) pour s'imposer rapidement dans certains roles du répertoire bel canto. Impressionante."

Thierry Lassence - LA LIBRE BELGIQUE - April 22, 1990

P. Van der Lint - TROWN - December 23, 1991

"The Italian tenor Fabio Armiliato made of his Antwerp Cavaradossi debut a memorable event and sang consciously to the end triumph."

F Papon - DE NIEUWE GAZET - December 23, 1991

AIDA - Opera de Marseille

"Le jeune ténor Fabio Armiliato, longiligne, grand, chantait pour la première fois à Marseille. Il montra des qualités d'expression et de musicalité de très bon aloi. Bonne voix homogène, aux aïgus amples et éclatants, bien amenèe et soutenue. Il fut très applaudi."

A. Mattalia - LE MERIDIONAL. June 3, 1991

"Fabio Armiliato est la révelation:....."Le Nil" lui permit de développer la vailance et la tenue de ses aïgus, la largeur de son medium; dans le duo avec Amneris et ancore plus avec Aida souleva les "BRAVA" par l'homogéneité des son chant, triomphant."

E. Santy - LE PROVENCAL. June 4, 1991

AIDA - New Jersey State Opera

"Not only did Italian tenor Fabio Armiliato sing magnificently, with trumpet-like high notes and elegant phrasing, he also sang with manly fire and with impeccable taste. This is no piggy tenor - in fact, Armiliato gave evidence of being that rarest of all operatic fauna, the intelligent tenor. He also happens to be tall, dark and handsome."

M. Redmond - THE STAR LEDGER. February 25, 1992

"The Radames, Fabio Armiliato, proved to be another welcome discovery. The tenor has a sweet voice that rings vibrantly at the top. He also knows how to sing Verdi; both his phrasing and his acting brought out the nobility of Radames' music."

J. H. Mazo - THE RECORD - February 25, 1992

CARMEN - Palma de Mallorca

"Fabio Armiliato el joven tenor italiano, saliò dispuesto a darlo todo y pudo comprobarse que es mucho lo que tiene por dar. Es un actor de fuerte expresiòn dramàtica y posee una voz que no se arredra ante nada. Si, pasados un os anos, elnombre de Armiliato se sitùa en primera linea -lo qual no seria extrano- el Teatro Principal tendrà el honor de haberle apoyado."

B. Domingo -ULTIMA HORA - March 28, 1992

"Fabio Armiliato es un tenor spinto seguro y apasionado de su "rol", dueno absoluto de las tablas, dotato de voz potente y hermoso timbre.".

DIARIO DE MALLORCA - March 28, 1992

ADRIANA LECOUVREUR - Teatro Colon (Buenos Aires)

"Armiliato mostrò agudos seguros, buena afinacion y musicalidad y una emissiòn franca. Dio ímpeto juvenil y temperamento al personaje de Maurizio y resultó convincente."

G. Morgenstern - EL CRONISTA. July 7, 1994

"Fue grato escuchar al tenor Fabio Armiliato, de buen timbre y de afinado sentido para anteponer un canto noble y expresivo al grito y la destemperanza que impulso cierta tradición de tenores del pasado. Si trata de un joven con fundadas posibilidades de ocupar un lugar de privilegio en el competitivo mundo de la òpera de hoy."

J.C. Montero - LA NACION. July 7, 1994

"Fabio Armiliato se afirmo y con solida axtension canto "L'Anima ho stanca", el relato bélico del tercero y sobre el final reveló cualidades dramáticas insospechadas".

A. Iturbo -DIARIO. July 8, 1994

IL TROVATORE - S. Francisco Opera

"Fabio Armiliato entame, avec une promesse, une carriére americaine: le jeu, rustre, appliqué, decoit de la part d'un jeune chanteur formé au théatre du temps. La voix, ample et génereuse, au timbre chaud, à l'aïgu solide et incisif, surprende très agréablement."

OPERA INTERNATIONAL - October 1994

"Fabio Armiliato displayed a ringing Italian tenor with flexibility of phrasing and heroic colors at the top. His sound, particularly around the passage to head voice, recalled the young Franco Corelli."

O. Roca - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. September 30, 1994

TURANDOT - Cincinnati Opera

"Tenor Fabio Armiliato's first Calaf was impressive for animal-like magnetism. The voice is strong and reedy, a good old-fashioned tenor tearing up the stage. "Nessun dorma"stopped the show.

OPERA NEWS - November 1995

AMICA - Prima registrazione Mondiale

"Fabio Armiliato è oggi in possesso della voce e dello stile per sostenere e risolvere adeguatamente un ruolo verista tanto arduo come quello di Giorgio. Del canto verista Armiliato possiede il metallo, schiettamente tenorile di un bel colore maschio, possiede lo slancio del registro acuto, possiede l'impostazione muscolosa, possiede il coraggio di buttarsi sulle frasi con impeto e passione, possiede una buona dizione che è requisito fondamentale per questo genere di repertorio."

G. Landini - L'OPERA July 1996

MANON LESCAUT - Opera de Paris Bastille

"Miriam Gauci est Manon, voix magnifiquement controlèe, avec un eventail de nuances extremement riche. Elle trouve en Fabio Armiliato un parteneire à sa mesure au timbre tres chaud et coloré, aux aigus triomphants sans dureté et au charme authenticament transalpin."

Pierre-Petit - LE FIGARO May 8, 1996
