Un Ballo in Maschera – Metropolitan Opera – April 2005

Marcello Giordani was a compelling King Gustav III. His smooth tenor climbed the emotional peaks as he portrayed the amorous Swedish monarch.
Associated Press – April 2005

… in the role of Gustavo III, [Giordani] offered one of the best performances at the Met. His “forte” have always been the secure and ringing high notes, and here he demonstrated it abundantly once more, singing with great assurance. In the duet with Amelia [Deborah Voigt], the “competition” was by no means an easy one, and Giordani tackled it like a true champion. Better still, in the passages requiring a more subtle vocal delivery to express either irony or bitterness, Giordani was equally convincing. (Translated from the Italian)
