Verdi, Puccini, and Massenet with Novaya Rossiya Symphony Orchestra

Following acclaimed performances as Rodolfo in La bohème at the Metropolitan Opera, Michael Fabiano travels to Moscow for a concert with the Novaya Rossiya Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Robert Tuohy. On December 20 at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, Fabiano and the ensemble present beloved arias and overtures by Verdi, Puccini, and Massenet. Recent acclaim of Michael Fabiano singing Puccini’s La bohème, Verdi’s La Traviata, and Massenet’s Manon:

“Fabiano sang with a youthful innocence, fervor, and tenderness. As with Pérez, his performance was a real characterization. “Che gelida manina” had a naïve sincerity, and in the Act III ensembles he added a palpable weight of feeling, so much so that in the final Act one could feel Rodolfo’s happy-go-lucky character had really matured. His attentive solicitousness to Mimi and devastated reaction at her death felt real and genuine.” (New York Classical Review)

“His tenor is a dark, muscular sound with a lively vibrato that quickens in moments of high emotion. The effect is pure frisson, like feeling a knife blade drawn across the skin. He can also scale the sound back to a caressing mezza voce, though even there there is a hint of danger behind the velvet. “What the hell is he up to?” you’d think as he began an aria, but by the final note you’d have changed your mind completely: “But this is what the piece is all about. How could I have missed that before?” In a word, this was a revelatory performance.” (Observer)

“New Jersey Tenor Michael Fabiano has emerged as one of the finest lyric tenors of his generation. The role of des Grieux suits him beautifully as does the late 19th century French operatic repertory, which he has been exploring with great success.” (Opera Warhorses)
