CARLOS OSUNA: María Grever, Júrame

“During the opening scene, Narraboth (the bright tenor Carlos Osuna), a young captain of the guard overcome with awe-struck desire for Salome, incessantly praises her beauty”.

The New York Times, about the role of Narraboth in Salome with Wiener Staatsoper at Carnegie Hall, March 2014
“Narraboth was Carlos Osuna, whose firmly-placed voice carried well, particularly in the rhapsodic upper reaches of this brief role.”
New York Classical Review, about the role of Narraboth in Salome with Wiener Staatsoper at Carnegie Hall, March 2014
