Michele Angelini continues to solidify his international reputation as one of the foremost tenors specializing in the Bel Canto and Mozartian repertoire
"The words "Rossini tenor" too often presage pinched, penetrating sounds. But Michele Angelini, as a handsome Prince Ramiro, displays a voice of silken loveliness as well as graceful agility."
"The tenor Michele Angelini brought lyricism and vigor to the part of Gennaro. Perhaps more than any other principal, he seemed to have internalized the Bel Canto style to such a degree that his utterances felt natural and discursive."
-New York Times
UPDATE! The reviews are in and Michele had a phenomenal success in his first Massenetian role, Nicias, to Placido Domingo's powerful Athanaël and Ermonala Jaho's seductive and emotional Thaïs at the Teatro Real Madrid and Festival Castell de Peralada with Maestro Patrick Fournillier!
Follow Michele as he prepares for an incredible 2018: his role debut as the coloratura-packed Idreno in David Alden's Semiramide in Munich, his first foray into Massenet as Nicias in Thaïs to Placido Domingo's Athanaël in Madrid, a return to his critically acclaimed portrayal as Almaviva in Laurent Pelly's Barbiere at the Edinburgh Festival after a huge success in Paris, and his return to playing daddy-virtuoso Argirio in Pier-Luigi Pizzi's Tancredi at the Petruzzelli in Bari!
