Belfiore, Il viaggio a Reims
Rossini Opera Festival
Aug 2017

"As the self-obsessed Cavaliere Belfiore, Alasdair Kent makes you sit up and take notice. His theatrical performance ensnared.. his starry tenor scored points, with enormous shine in the high register, so that one can easily understand why Corinna feels rather attracted to the violently flirting Cavaliere Belfiore than to the always melancholy Lord Sidney. The great duet between Tassinari and Kent was a musical highlight of the performance."
Online Musik Magazin

"Alasdair Kent proved a very positive impression... His voice is steadfast, unwavering and sure, but at the same time extraordinarily sweet, and gave hope that the Rossini Opera Festival has found a new… well, better not to say and wait for events to unfold."
Pesaro Urbino 24

"As Belfiore, Alasdair Kent was exactly spot-on, fresh and brilliant.."
L'Ape musicale


Concert
Rossini Opera Festival
Jul 2017

"..he conquered the audience's sympathy with an intelligent approach and a captivating interpretation... An extremely sweet voice, powerful and sure, that had no difficulty... Kent reminded of Juan Diego Florez' first appearances in Pesaro, at ROF.."
Pesaro Urbino 24
