“Alvaro Zambrano sang Prunier with a swagger and a wink, his voice mocking and bright.”
“Alvaro Zambrano provides a good contrast, a vibrant Prunier.”
“Even the minor role of Albazar was strongly cast: young tenor Alvaro Zambrano displayed a pleasant voice and buckets of verve and personality in his (all too often cut) aria di sorbetto “Ah, sarebbe troppo dolce” – we’ll be seeing more of this young man!”
