Opéra National du Rhin


“Franco Pomponi has exaclty the physique perfect for the role of Belcore - a fop with an imposing stature and predatory smile - and he offers a full interpretation with panache.  Besides his macho looks, he adds a real ease in vocalizations, with elegance in the vocal line and a vibrant tone.” - Opera-Online
