"The cast (…) shine with their voices, as usual,
and particularly beautiful is the performance of
the tenor Santiago Ballerini"

Jes√ļs Blanco L√≥pez , Libertad Digital
With a solid technique that allows him to naturally
overcome the difficulties of his role (Belfiore),
Santiago Ballerini delivers another anthological
interpretation.

Margarita Pollini , Clarin
"Ballerini himself is a force, transitioning
into different characters with Figaro’s zany
disguises and executing each new character
with perfect comedic timing"

Isabella Perrone , Broadway World
"Quanto al Conte d‚ÄôAlmaviva, spesso l‚Äôanello pi√Ļ debole nell‚Äôopera rossiniana, il tenore italo-argentino Santiago Ballerini, dotato di buona voce e buon commediante, mostra qua e l√† qualche esitazione, ma in linea di massima sostiene bene la parte, e affronta con spirito la scarsit√† di physique du r√īle.
