Andrea Chenier - Barcelona, Spain

American Baritone, Michael Chioldi also had a double debut, who sang his first Carlo Gérard at the Liceu. His voice pleasantly surprised from its first moment having great dimensions and with generous harmonics, complex timbre and a dark color ideal for the role. Here his verismo voice sounded ideal for the performances, equaling the orchestral grandiosity with ease, a homogeneous and unalterable tessitura and a facility in the upper register of great power. With correct diction, Chioldi can only be reproached for improving the fluency of phrasing, he has a tendency to sing on the granite of the instrument that at times can remind one of the mythical Sherrill Milnes.
