On a performance with the North Czech Philharmonic

“This is a great time to see Lomelí, who has the pipes to be a major star but is still at a point in his career where he hasn’t forgotten where he came from.”
Frank Kuznik, The Prague Post

 “The sold-out auditorium of the Prague State Opera (Státní opera Praha) welcomed on Wednesday the Mexican tenor David Lomeli in recital accompanied by the North Czech Philharmonic Teplice (Severočeská filharmonie Teplice) conducted by Charles Olivieri-Munroe. Lomeli is with his 28 years a rising opera star what he confirmed by this Prague debut.

Although by critics considered as a successor of his countrymen Rolando Villazón, he can be rather likened to another Mexican, Ramón Vargas. As Vargas, Lomelí has a voice somewhere between heroic and lyric tenor with sure heights and mostly lyric repertoire.  The recital was based on music by Italian (Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti) and French (Gounod) composers and Spanish zarzuelas in its second part – an affinity which Lomelí has in common with his teacher Plácido Domingo.”

Vladimír Říha, Právo

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