Philip Kennicott - culture critic for The Washington Post

"Narraboth, the handsome captain of the guards who is dangerously enthralled with Salome, is generally a thankless role...Eric Margiore’s Narraboth was a real presence, sung with a fine, forceful tenor and acted with more intelligence than is usually showered on a character whose purpose is only to delay the action."

"The supporting cast acted and sang with style. As Narraboth, Eric Margiore brought level-10 intensity to his role from the moment the lights went up."

"When the opera started I was taken by Mr. Margiore's wonderful ringing tenor as Narraboth, and was so upset that he died so soon...he sang beautifully."

“Margiore was a rapacious Duke...he possesses a luscious vibrato and feeling for his famous arias and nasty character.”

Palm Beach Opera: Rigoletto

“With his American Idol, heart-throb looks, he was easily the ever-excitable lover.”

Sarasota Opera: Il Barbiere di Siviglia

Herald Tribune, St. Petersburg Times, The Sarasota Observer - November 2008

"Margiore’s Almaviva was well sung…his tenor rang out over the orchestra with the kind of infectious good humor and intelligence needed in the role…he was an attractive and nimble comic actor.”

"Margiore really brought down the house with his bravura rendition of ‘Maria,’ with top notes at full volume and very high head tones that, with an emotional softness, floated through the auditorium.”

OPERA NEWS - Judith Malafronte, September 2007

“The audience was primed for excitement and Margiore, a former baritone, delivered plenty. He ripped into the role with brio and high-octane vocalism, reaching up to a secure high C-sharp with brilliance and style, upping the ante for the other tenor…this jump-start to his bel canto career was most auspicious.”
