Marcello - Metropolitan Opera
"The rest of the cast was just as brilliant. This writer has seen countless "Boheme" performances over the years and can assertively state that David Bizic is easily one of the best Marcello's at the Met in recent time. His baritone is weighty, massive and full of elegance. Every single phrase was sung with confidence, poise and expression. His acting was also a huge factor. Often times "Boheme" revivals feel routine, mainly because the supporting cast feels like it is going through the motions. In the case of Bizic, every moment on stage was full of reality. His groping Benoit in the first act was a comic touch that few other baritones have attempted. His snappy repartee with Rodolfo and their suspicious glances at the start of the fourth act really brought the relationship to life."
