Operatic excellence

U-M alumnus (’05) Michael Fabiano’s performance in Verdi’s “Lombardi Alla Prima Crociata” (The Lombards on the First Crusade”) has been widely praised by audiences and critics. His recent New York City singing performance (April 8) was deemed “soaring, thrilling.”

Below is an excerpt from The New York Times April 9 review:

What everyone who attended a concert by the Opera Orchestra of New York at Avery Fisher Hall on Monday night seemed to be thinking when the show was over might have been summarized in a Twitter post: “Michael Fabiano OMG.” The sentiment was evident whenever that tenor opened his mouth, to judge by the prolonged ovations and shouts that followed. — Steve Smith, The New York Times
