Vittorio enjoyed a great critical reception in his recent return to the Metropolitan Opera as the lead role in Les Contes d’Hoffmann. Here are some of the great reviews:

“Thanks to the superlative account of the role by Vittorio Grigolo, a winning personality and enchanting singer, one almost felt sorry for Hoffmann” – The Spectator

“From his very first offering, “Il était une fois,” there was an electric thrill in his voice that never tired…….when singing at full voice, which was most of the time, his high-octane tone showed not a blemish. In his love songs to the women, he truly seemed a man driven to the edge of reason by passion.” – New York Classical Review

“Vittorio Grigolo as Hoffmann “soars” with “high notes [that] are strong and clear… “….here as Hoffmann, he is simply spectacular. Handsome and agile on stage, and flatteringly placed, for the most part, stage front, the voice sees larger than before, but just as beautiful, rounded and nuanced.” – BACH TRACK
