“El Rodolfo de Carlo Colombara es quizás el personaje configurado de manera más ortodoxa de los que protagonizan esta versión. El dominio que tiene de su papel es indiscutible: impostación, elegante línea melódica, hermoso color y expresión noble son sus cualidades más destacables”
J.G. Messerschmidt, MundoClasico

“Furthermore Carlo Colombara triumphs as a true basso cantante with even, smooth, flexible delivery. Vi ravviso has rarely been sung with such warmth and elegance”.
Göran Forsling, Music Web

“As Rodolfo, Carlo Colombara has a secure, lyrical voice and is well inside the notes of his cavatina, for example”.
Dominic McHugh, Musical Criticism

“Carlo Colombara brings a honeyed seductiveness to his rich, resonant bass, making the character of Rodolfo a sort of sympathetic Don Giovanni”.
Dave Paxton, Music Omh

“Le Rodolfo de Carlo Colombara, élégant et racé”.
Christophe RIZOUD, Forum Opera

“Il y a toutefois un très bon Rodolfo (Carlo Colombara)”. Nicolas Blanmont, La Libre “Carlo Colombara’s Rodolfo is suitably beefy, tender too when Amina sleepwalks into his room”.
Christopher Cook, Music Magazine
