Godoy's debut in Italy: 'An exquisite vocality hovers under the frescoed vault of The Verdi'

''Nespolo also quotes in his curtain the 'futurists' three singers, excellent actors, starting with Antonella Colaianni, easy pawns of the game. From these voices,  I emphasize at least , the Diego Godoy's Lindoro.'

Francesco Tei,  'RAI NEWS ', Italy.

'Equally valid, the tenor Diego Godoy : his Lindoro is imposed without the slightest effort even in the ensemble scenes, but his exquisite vocality literally hovers under the frescoed vault of the [Teatro] Verdi [di Pisa] in the two big (and arduous) 'cavatinas' that Rossini entrusts to him in the first and second act.'

Luca Fialdini, 'Tutto Mondo News', Pisa, Italy.



'Diego Godoy, a true discovery for the Belcanto speciality'


Naturally youthful as Marie and warmly welcoming by the ramp: is her admirer, lover, and partner Tonio played by the Chilean Diego Godoy. He spiced up Ah mes amis ...with the 9 High Cs in a storm of enthusiasm, and he took the biscuit with the most lyrical and difficult air ‘Pour me rapprocher de Marie’: he conveyed the feelings with a wonderful legato, emotional phrasing, and a closing cadenza with a length and virtuosity which I have never heard in a live performance - with a 'High D' includes - one can not believe it !
The Mediterranean and never "white" tone fared its best for this young tenor, of which we hope to continue listening!

Diego Gonzalo Godoy, as Tonio, was a true discovery for the Belcanto-fach.


 Ewald Baringer, NÖN


The lyric tenor, Diego Godoy, who played the role of Tonio, was a real revelation. His middle registre is warm, shiny and manly while his highs are opening and explosing. He sang the high D natural as naturally as the nine high C's. We did not feel that he touches his limits because his highs are is because it seems, that he can go higher.
The tone and volume can be placed between Juan Diego Flórez and Francesco Demuro. However, the quality can not be compared to either, because Godoy, who was part of the Rhin Opera in Strasbourg, is already in the same "Club" of these two current opera world stars.
