REVIEWS

Il Trittico by G. Puccini at Teatro Principal de Palma – November 2023

“Rutllaven també els secundaris (…) però sobretot Mariangela Marini com a Frugola, interpretant tant Hai ben ragione com Ho sognata una casetta, apujant el llistó.

(…)

Arribà el moment culminant, amb la seva vigília, l’aparició de la Zia principessa, de bell nou Mariangela Marini en acció i la situació se situa a gran nivell, amb el duel amb Suor Angelica (…).

– J.A. Mendiola, arabalears.cat

Il Trittico by G. Puccini at Teatro Principal de Palma – November 2023

“(…) hay que aplaudir la magistral ejecución de Mariangela Marini como Frugola y posteriormente como Zia.”

– Eugènia Gallego, operaactual.com

La Traviata by G. Verdi at Teatro di San Carlo – May 2021

“Tra i ruoli secondari merita un encomio la Flora Bervoix di Mariangela Marini, dal timbro affascinante e dalla figura avvenente”
– Luigi Raso, apemusicale.it

Werther by J. Massenet at Teatro Sociale di Como – October 2020

“Accanto a lui, troviamo la Charlotte spontanea e potentemente drammatica di Mariangela Marini. In possesso di una vocalità tornita di seducente tinta ambrata, nell’insieme di buon peso e omogenea nell’emissione, luminosa e ghermita in acuto, il mezzosoprano interpreta con convinzione l’attesa aria delle lettere, intrisa di angoscia e tragicità. Valida è anche la resa dei momenti maggiormente sentimentali, quale il duetto d’amore con Werther “Il faut nous séparer”.”

– Stefano Balbiani, connessiallopera.it
