New York City Opera Debut as Nemorino

In his local debut, Mexican Tenor David Lomelí was a bright spot in New York City Opera’s production of L’Elisir d’Amore this spring.  Lomelí played the character of Nemorino and Fred Cohn of Opera News praised the singer, saying “His voice is of an ideal timbre and weight for the role.”  Zachary Woolfe of The New York Times said Lomelí “sang with sincerity and style and acted with energy in his New York stage debut.”  Woolfe added,  “He was, in a word, delightful.”  Lomelí received a “warm, extended ovation” following his big aria, “Una furtiva lagrima”, on opening night and seems to be off to a great start in New York City.

"Lomelí brought the evening to a heroic close with 'Nessun dorma' from Puccini's Turandot, singing with effortless power and ringing clarity."
