REVIEWS

Le Comte Ory at Malmö Opera – October 2018

“Leonardo Ferrando, rare en France, est un Comte Ory parfait, par la voix, le physique et le jeu facétieux. Les nombreux aigus sont clairs, le chant souple et virtuose.”

– Yvan Beuvard, Forumopera.com

Il barbiere di Siviglia at Arena di Verona Opera Festival – August 2018

“Leonardo Ferrando’s opening serenade ‘Ecco ridente in cielo’ immediately revealed an excellent use of sustained breath control, easy emission and agility, particularly evident in a bright and ringing high register and a smooth and graceful lyrical line.”

– Jill Comerford, GB Opera Magazine
