Pagliacci (Silvio)

Ópera Actual - Marcelo Cervelló

"...Manel Esteve contributed an optimal result to her interpretation of Silvio, clearly surpassing what was offered by her colleague from the first cast."

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."

Barcelona Clàssica - Dani Cortés

"...The Silvio of Manel Esteve was the perfect complement, both for his performance (which in this production already begins in the previous opera) and vocal level. The dreamer duo between Nedda and Silvio was one of the highlights of the show."

Ritmo.es - José María Morate Moyano

"...Special mention for the tenor-baritone couple (Eurilla-Beltramme) José Manuel Zapata and Manel Esteve, fantastic as actors and comic singers who covered with their grace Introduction and Intermediates, relaxing the operatic action. The session was round."

Platea Magazine - Antoni Colomer

"...Who we have been following for a long time and we see a growth that has shot up in recent years is Manel Esteve. The baritone is in a superlative vocal moment. The voice is projected as a laser beam through the room, showing a warm and pulpy baritone's color, thanks to an impeccable coverage technique, that in some moments reminds it Leo Nucci. The musicality is also very careful and neither the agility, the Sillabati or the phrases of long breath pose the slightest problem ... he was the king of the party from the moment he entered the scene thanks to his charisma and acting skills .... we are facing a singer who is at a time of ideal maturity to assume roles of greater dramatic commitment..."

Ópera de Oviedo 07/10/2018

RemenveringStars - Natan González

"... Manel Esteve was an outstanding poet, wearing his usual virtues: beautiful color voice, irreproachable singing and a surprising acting ability. In the comic, of course, highlight the scene in which it is thrown by the sewer. On the vocal side, he knew how to take advantage of an uninteresting character, giving him a little less than unusual enhancement...."

ABAO (Bilbao) 22/01/2018

Platea Magazine - Javier del Olivo

"...The Catalan baritone has excellent qualities that are always appreciated in his appearances ... ...but he had to listen to it in a role of more substance, where he could demonstrate all its quality, and the role of Lescaut, Manon's dissolute cousin, has been ideal for check it out. As an actor he was splendid and musically highlighted his excellent diction, the clarity of his singing, the job well done. Excellent and elegant in his stellar moment ("Oh, Rosalinde"), he did not detract from his teammates in the trio of the fourth act. Bravo."

"...Manel Esteve, baritone, as Bilou. Of the best of the night, intuitive and very timbred, served a function of height in the musical, within a role of not a few song difficulties, especially in his last song, and that Esteve solves perfectly. Beautiful phrasing and beautiful voice that shines a lot in the middle and acute area.
As an actor he is magnificent, of great naturalness, and delicious in all his interventions, giving Bilou a certain innocence very achieved and in total harmony with the character...."

Revista musical catalana  - Roberto Benito

"... Barcelona's baritone Manel Esteve reaffirmed his ascendant career in the opera houses of our country with a cool Silvio, credible physically and vocally. His duet together with Nedda was one of the most lyrical moments of the night. Round voice, technical security, perfect voice projection and a very elaborate stage presence make us guess most ambitious projects for this young singer."
