Diego Baner – reviews



“A brief star-turn by Baner in Colline’s final aria ‘Vecchia zimarra’ revealed a superb bass and ability to connect with his audience.”
- Dorothy Hindman, South FloridaClassical Review, Aug. 17, 2014

“Diego Baner (Colline) has one of the most beautiful voices that have been heard on this city (Miami) and its delivery Aria of the coat was, as always, impeccable.”
- Daniel Fernandez, el Nuevo Herald Miami, Aug. 19, 2014

“Strong support came also from William Powers as Melcthal, with Diego Baner as the suitably malevolent Gesler.” (Wichita Grand Opera, William Tell)
- Dr. Randolph Lacy, Opera News, Feb. 22, 2014

“The bass Diego Baner brought a commanding voice and stage presence to the role of Sparafucile, the hired assassin with an odd sense of integrity about his work. His dark voice suited the murderer perfectly and he hit the dialogue’s low F in an effortless, sustained manner.”
- David Fleshler, South Florida Classical Review, June 24, 2011

“Spectacular deep voice of Diego Baner in his brief moment as Uncle Bonze”
- Daniel Fernandez, el Nuevo Herald, July 1, 2012

“The powerful singing of Diego Baner’s Pascual made us almost lament the character’s eventual lack of success in love. Baner’s bass is a fine, sturdy instrument that sets the imagination to work thinking of all the operatic roles he could successfully tackle.”
- Alan Becker, South Florida Classical Review, July 2009
