Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona) 29/12/2019
Platea Magazine - Jordi Maddaleno
"...Pleasant interpretive and vocal performance of the Silvio of the Catalan baritone Manel Esteve. The voice always present, careful phrasing, warmth and colors and a generous acting performance made him shine next to the correct Nedda by Dinara Allieva. Together they starred in the beautiful duo of Nedda-Silvio, where both offered one of the most attractive moments of the show. You fill up vocal, acting delivery and emotion with the baton of Henrik Nánasi that seemed to highlight the sound intricacies of this musical oasis in a score where the drama bursts everywhere. Many wondered why Manel Esteve was not in the first cast. Impeccable in his Oh Colombina the Beppe of the tenor Vicenç Esteve, always reliable actor and singer who showed tables and canopy empathy for a saga, that of the Esteve, who continues writing his esteemed and personal contribution to the history of the Liceu."
