Patrick Carfizzi press reviews

“Patrick Carfizzi as Belcore not only had the authority of the army behind him, but his own bold ego. Talk about a girl in every port: Belcore has one in every village. Carfizzi's ample baritone has a seductive, dark amber timbre, and he used it to fill the part with virile confidence. He moved cockily, too, with a wink in his walk as well as his eye.”

—Craig Smith, The New Mexican, July 2009

A notable bright spot...was the Papageno of Patrick Carfizzi. A master of movement and gesture whose grace seemed worthy of a trained dancer or mime, Carfizzi gave a brilliant rendition of the lovable bird-catcher. Whether in his arias, such as "Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja," or in ensembles such as "Bei Männern," Carfizzi's bass-baritone filled the hall with beautifully phrased German, elegant lyricism and compelling musicality. —Opera News, Marcia J Citron, January 25, 2008

"The magical scene stealer, Patrick Carfizzi as the lovesick Papageno, keeps the audience laughing. Carfizzi’s comic genius includes spontaneous interactions with the audience and delivering perfectly timed comic phrases."
