“On Sunday… the Washington Concert Opera at Lisner Auditorium gave reason, if not to learn the opera by heart, at least to hear it with interest and enjoyment. The reason was the tenor Michael Fabiano. “Fabiano is an old-school tenor: he hits the stage looking and sounding like something out of the Golden Age. On Sunday he made a romantic, lyrical sound with a heroic ring to it, starting from the moment he opened the piece by striding on stage, letting loose with what amounts to a vocal fanfare, and getting everyone in the room to sit up and take notice.” —The Washington Post

“Even amidst such riches of marvelous singing, Michael Fabiano’s Corrado whirled through the performance like the mistral, his impassioned tones lending his singing a suggestion of Errol Flynn at his most swashbuckling.
