Reviews

"Tous les présents seront d’accord aussi pour qualifier de très heureuse surprise, la prestation du ténor Amadi Lagha dans Don Alvaro. Les plus tout jeunes dans la salle ont pu se remémorer le triomphe d’un certain Carlo Bergonzi sur le plateau en mars 1956 ! Amadi Lagha est un digne successeur, avec ses propres qualités. Ici aussi, en mai 2021, quelle aisance, quels aigus, quelle puissance, quel… Il sera Steva dans Jenufa mais aussi et surtout un Don José dans une distribution de Carmen en janvier 2022"
Michel Grialou
"C’est avec cette page superbe où Amadi Lagha, triomphe que le Capitole de Toulouse rouvrait ses portes aux spectateurs émus et profondément heureux.(…) La véritable découverte de ces représentations vient de la présence éclatante d’Amadi Lagha, jeune chanteur originaire de Tunisie et déjà célébré en Italie , qui emporte le rôle de fort ténor de Don Alvaro comme s’il montait un cheval de course. Maîtrise des aigus très contrôlée, timbre reconnaissable et agréable, montée à la quinte absolument parfaite. Il est musical et doté de moyens vocaux somptueux. Un nom à retenir. On peut l’entendre sur le Web et ainsi constater ses qualités, dans le rôle de Calaf personnage de Turandot de Puccini"
Amalthée
"(…) le Don Alvaro du ténor franco-tunisien Amadi Lagha qui renouvelle le choc de son Calaf toulonnais il y a deux ans. En plus de posséder un timbre particulièrement flatteur, il offre un organe parmi les plus puissants que nous ayons jamais entendus, avec des aigus d’une incroyable insolence, sans obérer la ligne de chant, et il nous prouve dans son fameux air « La vita è inferno all’infelice » qu’il est aussi capable de nuances et de demi-teintes."
Emmanuel Andrieu
« Le héros incontestable de l’opéra est le ténor Amadi Lagha. Ce jeune homme a une voix d’airain homogène sur toute la tessiture. Les riches harmoniques du grave évoluant délicatement vers la lumière solaire d’aigus semblant faciles. La diction est souveraine, ce chanteur sait ce qu’il chante ! Voilà un Alvaro proche de l’idéal capable d’emportements sauvages et de noblesse d’âme. Il est un poète de la nuit dans un air d’anthologie à l’acte 3. L’énergie qu’il met dans ses duos avec Carlo est incroyablement communicative. Grande et belle voix mais surtout interprète d’une rare intelligence dramatique. Nous le reverrons dans Don José l’an prochain au Capitole il y sera très attendu ! »
Hubert Stoecklin
" (...) vedette par l’Alvaro d’Amadi Lagha. Le franco-tunisien nous offre un magnifique parcours tout au long d’une partition semée d’embûches. Aucune d’elle ne l’effraie, il se joue des difficultés avec aisance. Timbre plaisant, projection impressionnante, tout cela nous va (…)"
