(Lyric Opera of Chicago)

“Authentic Italianate style is upheld especially well by the Italian tenor Giuseppe Filianoti as Lucia’s lover, Edgardo. His voice blended beautifully with Phillips’ and their characters’ increasing desperation as the opera moved to its tragic denouement clearly engaged the opening-night audience.”

John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, October 12, 2011

“At least authentic bel canto style was upheld by Giuseppe Filianoti as Edgardo. He sang with ease and fluidity and cut a handsome, Byronic figure.”
