"The most commanding singer on the stage was undoubtedly Krassen Karagiozov as Rigoletto. He deployed his baritone voice to great effect with a wide range of textures.

“The true male lead is Alfredo’s father, Giorgio, whose music calls for pages of smooth, powerful singing. Krassen Karagiozov’s confidently supported, attractive baritone brought out much of the part’s beauties, especially in the aria “Di Provenza il mar.”
