GINO LUCCHETTI

“High notes so natural and gorgeous that no one should mess with them.”

– legendary soprano Jane Eaglen

“Lucchetti again showed himself to be a better singer than some I have encountered on the most famous operatic stages in the world. The voice is attractive in timbre, and beautifully produced throughout its range.”

-Bernard Jacobsen (Referring to his role as Manrico)

“The star, and the outstanding figure by a long way, was the tenor Gino Lucchetti as Rodolfo… his voice rang out at once commandingly and with ample nuance when that was required, and he portrayed this rather feckless poet as a thoroughly likable figure. Even when he was not singing, his attentive way of watching his Mimì and responding to her was an object-lesson in intelligent stage deportment.”

-Bernard Jacobsen (On Rodolfo)
