Hallwyl Castle Opera – La Cenerantola – DON MAGNIFICO
A true buffo character with a superb bass voice is Noé Colin’s Don Magnifico (Father).
Neue Zürcher Zeitung
Festival Taormina - Don Giovanni - LEPORELLO
'...outstanding stage presence and great "actors" in the play of seduction: the servant Leporello (Noé Colin, bass)
Il Barbiere di siviglia - DON BARTOLO - Wuppertaler Bühnen
'Very convincing the buffo-bass Don Bartolo, interpreted by Noé Colin.'
Falstaff–FALSTAFF – Opera Zuid
'About the Mexican bass-baritone Noé Colin as Sir John Falstaff we just have to say he has wonderful timbre and lithe and livrly timbre and he is an excellent actor.'
„The Mexican Noé Colin - who jumped in for an indisposed collegue - presented a sublime Falstaff, both vocally and in facial espression. Besides, his physical condition is fabulous. After laying head over for several minutes in the last act, he immediately continued singing with a voice, which hadn’t lost one grain of quality. We hope to see and hear him again here soon in another fitting role.”
Mens en Melodie
„'With his gorgeous bass-baritone voice and his stout figure Noé Colin portrays the rake Falstaff, who just cannot resist women and drinking.”
Brabants Dagblad
“...the title hero, excellently pportrayed by Noé Colin... just perfect how Noé Colin in the title role knows how to combine singing and acting in a most natural way, giving the audience a warm kind of home feeling.“
„all superbely performed by a beautifully singing cast. The Mexican Noé Colin is the ideal personification of this Falstaff'“
NCR Handelsblad
„Noé Colin is vocally and theatrically superior to his fellow actors.“
De Volkskrant
„The Mexican Noé Colin is a bold and hot-blooded Falstaff. Also vocally he has enough weight to portray the fat nobleman, trying to hook a rich woman.“
De Telegraaf
“... in many ways an excellent cast, with an indescribably singing and acting Mexican Noé Colin as Falstaff.”
De Limburger
Der Liebestrank - DULCAMARE – Vienna Popular Opera
„With Noé Colin the charlatan Dulcamarais in good hands“
Die Presse Wien
Don Giovanni - PASQUARIELLO - Zurich Opera House
“ 'But the most beautiful role interpretation comes from the Mexican bass singer Noé Colín: His Pasquariello is not a fat buffo, but – in a figurative sense – a naively wondering, always swaggering, cheerful 'accomplice', one you can only find on stage.”
Aargauer Zeitung
„Leporello who is called here Pasquariello is portrayed by Noé Colin who turns him into a capital fellow, with wag in his oppulent bass voice.“
Der Landbote
Don Pasquale – DON PASQUALE – Vienna Popular Opera
“ Noé Colin as Don Pasquale at the Popular Opera: a great comedian, who not only sings heavenly but also plays deliciously. He has a beautiful, deep bass voice, which he knows how to use according to the respectives moods of the main character. Both vocally and actingly, his performance was outstanding.“
