"As the libertine Duke of Mantua, tenor Rolando Sanz swaggered, seduced, and sang ravishingly. His was an authoritative and imposing presence, and in each of his great arias, his splendid vocal technique enabled him to negotiate Verdi’s writing easily — and make it look like he was having fun, to boot. He was a delight to watch, and, even more, a delight to hear, particularly in Act III where his "La donna è mobile" and his contribution to the great quartet "Bella figlia dell’amore" were immensely distinguished and engaging."
David Lindauer, The Capital Gazette


"Rolando Sanz, in the prized tenor role of the Duke of Mantua, displayed admirable portamento in "Questa o quella" and surprising tenderness in his duet with Gilda."
Mary Johnson, Baltimore Sun
