El tenor dramático en la ópera, el puertorriqueño Antonio Barasorda falleció por un infarto masivo el pasado lunes 9 de julio de 2018.  El artista estaba en su residencia acompañado de su esposa cuando aconteció el percance fatal.  

Barasorda es parte de esas figuras como Antonio Paoli,  Pablo Elvira, César Hernández (aún vive) o Justino Díaz (aún vive) como grandes exponentes masculinos de la Ópera en Puerto Rico e internacional.

Algunas críticas

Enter, reluctantly or otherwise, Antonio Barasorda to take his place. One could only admire Mr. Barasorda’s courage and feel sympathy for his situation. For with all respect, no one wanted him there. This Puerto Rican tenor cuts a less than imposing figure, and after 35 years onstage, the voice sounded a little tired. The beginning was tentative and punctuated by frequent glances at the prompter’s box. Yet by the end of Act II, situated below Roxane’s balcony, Mr. Barasorda’s singing and confidence gained to a point where listeners — undoubtedly disappointed to miss Mr. Domingo’s star turn — began engaging themselves in the opera and having the good time they deserved.BERNARD HOLLANDJAN. 28, 2006

 

Tenor Antonio Barasorda, a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, made his Metropolitan Opera debut singing Canio in a 1995 Pagliacci and has gone on to sing Calaf in Turandot, Luigi in Il Tabarro, Pollione in Norma, Manrico in Il Trovatore, Cavaradossi in Tosca and Radames in Aida with the company. His U.S. debut came in the title role of Opera Theatre of St. Louis’ Il Conte Ory.www.operanews.com

 

Following a lengthy intermission, an official came on to announce that Bergonzi was indisposed and Acts 3 and 4 would be sung by Antonio Barasorda. The audience was clearly disappointed, but the performance actually improved considerably. Barasorda, with the right vocal weight and timbre, was able to do the role full justice.
