PRESS

“Countertenor Nicholas Tamagna’s beautifully-vocalized and grippingly heartfelt portrayal of Ottone from the urgent utterance of ‘E pur io torno qui’ with which he made his entrance to the final note of the part was an Ottone whose inner turmoil was revealed in singing of boundless energy and musicality.”

Les Voix des Arts
Joseph Newsome

“Nicholas Tamagna’s vocal warmth and ease, and his pathos, illuminated his caught-between-a-rock-and-a-hard-place role of Ottone.”

Journal Sentinel
Elaine Schmidt

“As the spurned lover and would-be assassin Ottone, Nicholas Tamagna is an impressive and effortless countertenor, providing a fascinating sound contrast in a production rich in high male voices.”
