REVIEWS
 
Teatro Avenida – La Traviata - ALFREDO
"With his beautifully lyrical timbred voice, he did an excellent job, providing some marvellous moments in the last duet „Parigi oder Gesicht“. Bürgi has a sense for nances. Besides, he has the ideal juvenile appearance, perfect for the figure of Alfredo. And he sure knew how to use this adequately."

"The score contains two demanding tenor roles. Santiago Bürgi hat als Števa, Jenufa‘s cowardly and insensitive friend, who leaves her after the pregnancy, makes an excellent job."
