CRITIC REVIEW:

“Guerrini was a favourite of the Teatro San Carlo in Naples. Her Violetta has its moments of beauty and largesse, but much of it sounds like a Tosca lost in Paris. Infantino’s performance has vast amounts of charm; this Alfredo is clearly in love. The voice is light but not always light-footed, and he is able to deliver the more dramatic moments with panache. He can sound a bit sheepish here and there, it could be argued that this is compatible with Alfredo’s character (and not surprising opposite Guerrini’s towering Violetta). At the end of Act II he sounds particularly (and appropriately) distraught. The duets are delivered with beautiful lyricism and rich texture; he also articulates and shades very well. He makes an excellent Alfredo. Silveri’s top notes ring out impressively in the long duet, and his rendition has its touching moments.”
