|Jose Carbo (L) in Seattle's Barber of Seville|
We got so caught up in David Adam Moore singing the Barber in Seattle that we relegated Jose Carbo's U.S. debut to an aside. This gifted singer and performer apparently is quickly becoming an audience favorite. Here is a blurb from "The Classical Review.":
Carbó swaggers around the stage as if he owns it, as a good Figaro should. He’s handsome, charismatic, and utterly assured, with a beautifully produced baritone that has a surprisingly easy top (he matches the tenor in several passages). He’s also a good ensemble member, working well with the other singers and not merely doing his own star turn.
Ticket and cast information are available at the Seattle Opera website.
