Arturo Chacón-Cruz sang the title role in Boston University Opera Institute's production of Mozart's Idomeneo Monday evening, April 21:

"In the title role, tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz flaunted both personal and vocal charisma. He boasts a handsome and sympathetic stage presence, although there is not much specificity in his acting. He does sing Italian with imagination and authority, and the voice itself is irrestibly dark in color and warm in timbre. He is a former baritone, and his conversion to tenor still sounds like a work in progress. The high notes are there, but they sound opaque and effortful, and the instrument does not sound equally balanced across its range. Chacón-Cruz is still young, so he has time; his talent is already unmistakable."

Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe, April 25, 2003
