When it came to Lucia’s true love, Edgardo, we heard some true bel canto singing and vocal elegance from Adriano Graziani. His name implies some Italian background and he certainly exhibited most of the Italianate squillo heard in the performance. With his slim figure, clear diction allied to a good variety of tone and colour he was a great strength to the production. He made the last scene a highlight with Edgardo’s double aria, well supported by Stephen Barlow. Graziani’s CV says he studies with the renowned Welsh tenor Dennis O’Neil CBE. That is good news for his promising skills.
