Feuilleton - Frankfurter Rundschau 01/07/09
"The young Brazilian tenor Luciano Botelho, acts and sings it with deadly mourning distress, slightly neurotic anti-hero, vividly, touching and emotionally."
Verena Großkreutz - NMZ - Neue Musikzeitung 01/07/2009
"The leading singer Luciano Botelho as Orphée caused also enthusiasm with his poetic and playful internalized study as a young man who doesn't avoid any danger in the battle for his love. His virtuosity reaches so far that extreme sounds can be laid out as a consequence of the highest expressiveness."
Udo Klebes - der neuer Merker 09/09/2011
"On his way to Hades, the young Brazilian high tenor, Luciano Botelho masters the huge difficulties of this role with virtuosity and elegance."
Martina Wohlthat - Neue Zürcher Zeitung 29/06/2009
"Orpheus needs to touch the Gods (and the audience) with his noble singing: The young Brazilian Tenor Luciano Botelho succeeds excellently; he faces the dificult coloraturas bravely."
