Lawrence Budmen of South Florida Classical Review, 2019: “Romanian tenor Emanuel Cristian Caraman brought authentic Italianate ring to Edgardo. His strong lyric voice blended smoothly with Suits in the Act I duet and his denunciation of Lucia when he realizes she has signed the marriage contract was spine-tingling in its intensity. The tomb scene can be anti-climactic after Lucia’s final collapse but not with Caraman’s impassioned singing. Before Edgardo’s stabbing himself to join his beloved in heaven, Caraman vaulted “Tu che a Dio” to the rafters, sung with golden tone and big- boned fervor.”
