CARMEN - PRESS REVIEW

November 12, 2008 - THE GEORGETOWNER
"A good looking young tenor from Brazil with the unusual name of Thiago Arancam played Don José, Carmen’s hapless lover. His voice is warm and attractive and his youthful presence adds to the character’s authenticity."

November 14, 2008 - THE DAILY COLONIAL
"CARMEN' DAZZLES AT KENNEDY"
"The true stars of the opera are Don Jose (Thiago Arancam) and Carmen (Denyce Graves). The rich and strong tone of Arancam in every aria and recitative he performed brought his performance to an entirely new level with each unique phrase." [...]

November 9, 2008 - THE WASHINGTON TIMES
" [...] As her hapless lover, Don Jose, tenor Thiago Arancam excels in a difficult role. Jose is probably the wimpiest hero in opera, but Mr. Arancam gives him considerable dignity, transforming him into a genuinely good guy who literally is destroyed by the irresistible force of Carmen. His voice is clear and packed with surprising power, enabling him to display his lyric gifts while adding heft to the ensemble numbers"

November 5, 2008 - SEIZE THE OWL
"The real star for me, and unbelievably considering it's such a dud of a role, was Thiago Arancam as Don Jose. For a start, he has a great voice for this role. The flower aria came off superbly (earning the most heartfelt applause of the night)- and, importantly, I felt he was totally convincing in the role which can't be easy considering DJ is such a sap. He's also not bad to look at, and I like the idea of DJ as young, horny and stupid rather than just stupid."
