Opera Arias - Carlos Alvarez

  • Stiffelio, ~, Ei fugge!
  • Roberto Devereux, ossia Il conte di Essex, ~, Forse in quel co sensible
  • (La) traviata, ~, Di Provenza il mar
  • Falstaff, ~, È sogno? o realtà
  • (I) Puritani, ~, Ah! per sempre
  • (La) Favorita, ~, Vieni, amor/Leonora! A' piedi tuoi
  • Carmen, ~, Votre toast (Toreador's Song)
  • Eugene Onegin, You wrote to me (Kogda bi zhizn domashnim krugom)
  • Don Carlo, ~, Per me giunto

It is sad to find such a good young voice produced with so much unevenness. Carlos Alvarez made his debut in 1990 and has been in demand ever since - Verdi baritones are scarce. His spirited declamation, bright top notes and fluent cadenzas are welcome, but too many notes are unsteady, and not much is done to differentiate characters.
