Giorgio Caoduro 1

Giorgio Caoduro - Reviews

"The Italian baritone Giorgio Caoduro, last year’s excellent Rigoletto, is luxury casting as Marguerite’s brother Valentin and makes the third musketeer in an excitingly testosterone-fuelled trio of male soloists. Pitted against Fabiano and Tahu Rhodes he’s more than equal to the task. Avant de quitter ces lieux, a deceptively demanding showcase aria, is dispatched with relative ease and his death scene was a knockout, the line carried with great sensitivity and attention to dramatic detail."

"His harrowing, utterly compelling portrayal was one of Opera Australia’s most memorable performances of recent years."
"Il suo ritratto straziante ed estremamente convincente è una delle più memorabili esecuzioni degli ultimi anni presso Opera Australia"
Murray Black - The Australian (Rigoletto alla Sydney Opera House, giugno 2014)

The valet Dandini, Giorgio Caoduro, is the "king " of the evening in every sense of the word, brilliant, enjoyable, and vocalizing with natural ease, all amazing.

We are fortunate indeed to have been able to engage Giorgio
Caoduro to make his Company debut as Dulcamara. He has already built up a truly impressive list of
achievements in his young career, and I know that our audiences will welcome this exciting addition to our
Company.

Young debut baritone Giorgio Caoduro (Belcore) is the real thing: strong, handsome, mobile, and endowed with a fabulous instrument. Ideally blustery and preposterously macho, he created an ideal cardboard soldier who is so full of himself he hasn't a clue. I took few notes on his performance because I was too busy marveling at it. I trust we will hear a lot more from him in coming seasons.

GIORGIO CAODURO is the studliest Italian baritone this side of Yountville. Mr. Caoduro (...)is himself an elixir d'amore. He is composer Gaetano Donizetti's idea of a baritone "the same strong, virile and vibrant sound he wants for Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor (...)In his First Act cavatina, "Come Paride vezzoso", the comely sergeant explains his self-acceptance as the kind of soldier-type-guy women go mad for. Indubitably.

Baritone Giorgio Caoduro was a vigorous and attractive Belcore.

"The real discovery is Giorgio Caoduro, a 25-year-old Italian baritone whose firm, forward tone is allied to a natural exuberance. You'll not hear the role better sung anywhere."
