On Aida (Messenger), San Francisco Opera

 “To redefine the concept of luxury casting, Mexican tenor David Lomeli is singing the tiny role of the Messenger bringing news of Amonasro’s mischief in the south… San Francisco Opera patrons should not be astonished if Lomeli is announced for a principal role in San Francisco Opera’s upcoming season.”

William Burnett, Opera War Horses  


On “The Future is Now” Adler Fellows Concert 2010, San Francisco

“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

 “Graduating tenor David Lomelí is ready to take on the world’s stages right here and right now…. He finished the evening with a ‘Nessun Dorma’ that just nailed the showcase aria.”

Michael Strickland, Civic Center 


On Don Giovanni (Don Ottavio), Michigan Opera Theatre

“Mexican-born tenor David Lomelí was a consistently impressive singer, capturing the diverse musical challenges of ‘Dalla sua pace’ and ‘Il mio tesoro’ with able artistic and technical charm.”

John Guinn, Opera News


On a performance at the Kissinger Sommer’s Festival Opera Gala

 “The 29 year-old David Lomelí is a world-class tenor, born in Mexico City and currently working in San Francisco. He is thoroughly at home on stage and must make people in San Francisco very happy with the sound of his voice. As soon as he sings, he singularly evokes nobility and the certainty that there is nothing more important at this moment, nothing more exciting, and nothing that can be more moving. If the voice of Pavarotti was the 20th Century – then the 21st could be Lomeli. He has it all: charisma, brilliance, levity, an unerring sense of timing, phrasing, and dynamics, as well as comedy and drama. This third appearance at Kissinger Sommer’s Festival Opera Gala is yet another triumph: In the stands they raged like people in the bleachers of a football stadium with seemingly endless cries of ‘Bravo’ from the boxes.”

Mathias Wiedemann, Main Post, Germany 


On San Francisco Opera in the Park, San Francisco Opera

“David Lomelí melted hearts with ‘La donna e mobile’… Ramón Vargas, Lomelí, Marcello Giordani, and Jadge had some fun with the obligatory ‘O sole mio’ as an encore. I was thinking, we’ll be telling our grandchildren that we saw Vargas and Lomelí singing on the same stage.”

Janos Gereben, SF Classical Voice
