“…Fabiano was in fine form vocally. There was never a moment where you couldn’t hear him project into the cavernous Met…his arrival in the second Act saw him sing with unbridled passion. Throughout you got a sense of a man yearning for more, his sound constantly pushing its own limits to exciting effect.
His finest moments definitely came in the final two acts. His cries of “Helena” were filled with rapturous joy and elation that suited the visceral ping in his timbre. But the epilogue is where he shone with a passionate “Giunto sul passo estremo” and especially in riding over the chorus at the very end.”
