Godoy's debut in Italy: 'An exquisite vocality hovers under the frescoed vault of The Verdi'

'Nespolo also quotes in his curtain the 'futuristic' three singers, excellent actors, easy pawns of the game. From these voices,  I emphasize at least , the Diego Godoy's Lindoro.'

Francesco Tei,  'RAI NEWS ', Italy.

​'In the same way valid, the tenor Diego Godoy : his Lindoro is imposed without the slightest effort even in the ensemble scenes, but his exquisite vocality literally hovers under the frescoed vault of the [Teatro] Verdi [di Pisa] in the two big (and arduous) 'cavatinas' that Rossini entrusts to him in the first and second act.'

Luca Fialdini, 'Tutto Mondo News', Pisa, Italy.

'Diego Godoy, a true discovery for the Belcanto speciality'

Naturally youthful as Marie and warmly welcoming by the ramp: is her admirer, lover, and partner Tonio played by the Chilean Diego Godoy. He spiced up Ah mes amis ...with the 9 High Cs in a storm of enthusiasm, and him took the biscuit with the most lyrical and difficult air ‘Pour me rapprocher de Marie’: he conveyed the feelings with a wonderful legato, emotional phrasing, and a closing cadenza with a length and virtuosity which I have never heard in a live performance — with a 'High D' includes — one can not believe it! The Mediterranean and never "white" tone fared on its best for this young tenor, of which we hope to continue listening!

Diego Gonzalo Godoy, as Tonio, was a true discovery for the Belcanto-fach.

 Ewald Baringer, NÖN

The lyric tenor, Diego Godoy, who played the role of Tonio, was a real revelation. His middle register is warm, shiny and manly while his highs are opening and exploding. He sang the high D natural as naturally as the nine high C's. We did not feel that he touched his limits because it seems, that he can go higher.
The timbre and volume can be placed between Juan Diego Flórez and Francesco Demuro. However, the quality can not be compared to either, because Godoy, who was part of the Rhin Opera in Strasbourg, is already in the same "Club" of these 

two current opera world stars.

The confidant Araspe, a beautiful          high tenor role offered by Diego Godoy: Refined, with acting presence, dark timbre and a very accurate intonation

No questions remain unanswered in this cast, for example, Diego Godoy with his refined highs in the role of Araspe.   Saverio Mercadante, Didone Abbandona, Der Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik).


Araspe, the confidant of Jarba, who later falls in love with Selene, receives from Diego Godoy acting presence and vocal profile through his pleasantly dark timbre tenor.

Tenor perfectly impacted and an intonation always one of the most precise, the young Diego Godoy Gutiérrez also offers sweets in 'mezza di voce'.
