In praise of Francisco Araiza
« on: May 15, 2011, 03:00:05 AM »
Does anyone else love his acting style and his voice?

Have been watching the many clips on youtube..

I particularly enjoy his "Ah Fuyez" from Manon

Take a look:

His Werther is also amongst my favourites. I was delighted then to come across his Nemorino and his rendition of "Adina credimi". I always love the Pavarotti version of this from the Met broadcast, such emotion in his voice but i think Araiza matches him

I just love watching him

Yes, that was a very moving Des Grieux. Here he is in Mozart "Il mio tesoro intanto" Don Giovanni - totally unflappable in the passage work.

“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, one by one.”
