David ALEGRET Tenor


“Spanish tenor David Alegret has the admirable combination of a tall-slim frame (unusual for a tenor), and a flexible high lying voice which fits Rossini's complex music, and he combined a superb technique, with a fearlessness in the high lying range”, Robert Hugill, Opera Today

21/22 he sings IL CONTE BELLAVITA (I tre gobbi) at the Teatro de la Zarzuela, the BERGER in Stravinsky’s “Oedipus Rex” and CHEKALINSKY in “Pikovaya Dama” at the Gran Teatre del Liceu.

David Alegret, who played Narciso, showed total mastery of bel canto articulation and fluent resolve in the agile Rossini style.
Alejandro Martínez - Codalario
Especially worth mentioning was tenor David Alegret, who made the most of the thankless role of Narciso, the tenor of the opera, with his three arias of considerable difficulty very well sung and intoned.

It was David Alegret and Yolanda Auyanet who best surmounted the obstacles demanded by the score – a complicated coloratura and some challenging high notes.
Elena Habermann - Der Neue Merker
Her Prince Charming , Don Ramiro, was David Alegret who was on marvellous form. A singer with brilliant and very steady high notes in perfect Stile Rossiniano. A Tenore di Grazia who must return to the Staatsoper. The tall Catalan is also a good actor.
