La Cenerentola ~ Don Magnifico ~ Opera Ithaca

As Don Magnifico, Adelmo Guidarelli is superb – bald and round, imperious and severe yet toadying and foolish, he cuts a marvelous figure.

Barbara Adams ~ Ithaca Times (2017)


La Cenerentola ~ Don Magnifico ~ Opera Tampa

Don Magnifico was hilariously portrayed by bass-baritone Adelmo Guidarelli.

Andrew Meacham ~ Tampa Times (2017)


La Cenerentola ~ Don Magnifico ~ Bob Jones University

Adelmo Guidarelli brings a flexible voice and tremendous gusto to the role of the stepfather Don Magnifico.

Paul Hyde ~ Greenville News (2016)


Man of La Mancha ~ Innkeeper/Governor ~ Central City Opera

Comic impact was provided by Adelmo Guidarelli as the Innkeeper/Governor.

Peter Alexander ~ Sharps & Flatirons (2015)


Opportunity Makes the Thief (L'occasione fa il ladro) ~ Martino ~ Little Opera Theatre of New York

Adelmo Guidarelli was charming as Parmenione's Schleporello-like valet, Martino. A veteran comedy performer, Mr. Guidarelli stole nearly every scene he was in.

Tosca ~ Sacristan ~ Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra

Adelmo Guidarelli’s entrance as the Sacristan at the beginning of Act I put the audience at ease immediately with his joviality, as he worked his way through the theater with a dust rag, wiping off the woodwork, creating the illusion that  everyone was seated in an Italian church. His voice was both deep and powerful, cutting easily through the orchestra with a pleasing timbre.

Janine Wanée ~ The Boston Musical Intelligencer (2014)


The Ballad of Baby Doe ~ Horace Tabor ~ Winter Opera St. Louis

Baritone Adelmo Guidarelli was a first-rate Horace Tabor; not surprising, given that he’s one of the few opera singers who can lay claim to a MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) award for a cabaret show. You don’t get that without some theatre smarts.


Chuck Lavazzi ~ KDHX St. Louis (2013)


Le Nozze di Figaro ~ Figaro ~ St. Petersburg Opera

Guidarelli played the quick-witted Figaro with just the right balance of levelheadedness and tenderness. His deep, abounding voice was appropriately masculine and vigorous.

Melanie O'Neill ~ St. Petersburg Examiner (2012)


Gianni Schicchi ~ Gianni Schicchi ~ Round Top Summer Festival

Adelmo Guidarelli was an ideal Schicchi, singing and acting the part with relish and avoiding the excessive buffo posturing of even famous Schicchi’s  of the past. The performance led by the great Maestro Anton Coppola, was an utter delight, the full house enjoyed the performance and bravos nearly hit the roof.
