“Patrick Guetti … seemed completely at home on the Met stage, especially in his gravely compelling account of “Il lacerato spirito,” from Verdi’s “Simon Boccanegra,” a father’s lament.”

Anthony Tommasini

The New York Times

“His striking, granitic bass carried the day, and he sang “Il lacerato spirito” from Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra stylishly, down to the sepulchral low notes. He appeared decidedly more relaxed in Rossini’s “La Calumnia” from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, during which he used his long limbs and long hands to fine comic effect.”

“His rendition of Fiesco’s aria “Il lacerato spirito” from Verdi’s SIMON BOCCANEGRA was full-bodied, effortless and haunting. Guetti then turned the tables by choosing Don Basilio’s broadly comic–yet threatening–“La calunnia” from Rossini’s IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA and tearing up the stage.”
