“Michael Fabiano was on magnificent form and excelled in the principal role of Poliuto. His voice has a rich golden lustre that resounded clearly and powerfully above the orchestra and chorus at various points. His phrasing, tone colour and dynamics were beautifully controlled. He captured splendidly the inner contradictions of the character: during the course of the opera we see him denouncing his wife and thundering against his oppressors while at the end of the piece he achieves a spiritual transcendence, accepting his fate with equanimity.”
