Largo al Factotum from "IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA" by Gioacchino Rossini
"...In the tremendously, evocative and full of tension production of Rigoletto, Marian Pop shines oustandingly as the main character. His powerful, and in the same time, flexible voice, embodies with credibility the ambivalence of this complex, but damaged character."
" ... the most convincing performance belonged to Romanian baritone Marian Pop, whose arresting stage presence and aristocratic flair made his Count Almaviva quite memorable. Boasting vocal fluidity and purity of tone, his was the most impressive voice of the evening. The baritone's attention to detail and refined diction were particularly noticeable in the recitatives, which he delivered with noble grandeur."
