“A beautiful full lyric, warm, typically Mediterranean tenor, smoothly produced (…) ready to engage
in mezze voci and diminuendos (so beautiful was the one of the B flat of “chi son?” in a “Che gelida
manina sung in the original key) with fearless high notes. He had a refined phrasing, he was
involved and reactive: a born actor (…)”. This review of the prestigious web magazine Connessi
all'opera was one of the many to enthusiastically welcome Amadi Lagha's debut at the 2016 Festival
Pucciniano of Torre del Lago as Rodolfo in La bohème.

Festival Pucciniano of Torre del Lago.
In 2015 he made his debut as Turiddu in Cavalleria rusticana at the Teatro Goldoni Livorno and
