Ernani – Metropolitan Opera – March 2008

“…he died a very moving — and very musical — death.”
– Jay Nordliner, The New York Sun – March 19, 2008

“Marcello Giordani looked dashing in the title role and sang with gleaming tone … He did score finesse points for singing softly twice in a while.”
– Martin Bernheimer, Financial Times – March 19,2008

Marcello Giordani [as Ernani] showed his customary full Italianate tone in the title role…. his barn-storming, ear-ringing rendition of the stretta to the second act brought the house down.
