Michael Fabiano headlined Palm Beach Opera’s gala at the Flagler Muse
For most people, singing well takes a lot of effort. Michael Fabiano is not most people, it would seem.Fabiano’s voice, instead of being forced out, fighting against stll air, sounds like it is being pulled out to fill a void. He could not keep the sound in if he wanted to.
…Despite the recital format, each aria was delivered with a full-blown operatic performance, including beginning Giacomo Puccini’s Ecco la casa…Torna ai felici di with his back to the crowd.
…Watching Fabiano sing was akin to watching a superhero lift a heavy object. He performed the task with ease, often casually leaning against the piano. Work that would make a mortal sweat, turn red and likely pull a muscle, but he did it with a smile.
