Baritone, Gabriel Manro has been called “a new kind of baritone: not lyric, not helden, not Kavalier, not Bariton-Martin — none of those. Rather, he’s a knock-down baritone.” --Janos Gereben, San Francisco Classical Voice. Indeed, Manro regularly sings dramatic baritone roles - most recently: Don Carlo in La forza del destino with West Bay Opera and Andrei Shchelkalov in the Russian masterpiece Boris Godunov with Utah Festival Opera. Opera News declared West Bay's production a success “thanks to the major casting coup of baritone Gabriel Manro as Don Carlo. Gifted with a striking, sinister baritone that remains strong, even and sonorous throughout the range, he tore into Verdi's music with a vengeance.” --Opera News.
