William Davenport Receives Review of Donizetti Performance in Genova, Italy

static1.squarespace-2Tenor William Davenport (BM ’11, Voice) sang the title role in Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux in performances at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genova, Italy, and received a review on “The role of Roberto was supported by American tenor William Davenport. He pleasingly hit the timbre of a pure lyric, very natural emission and free of any force, especially in the high lying area of the score, and very much reminds us of the sound of Pavarotti of memory. He displayed optimal phrasing . . .” wrote Susanna Toffaloni in the review. Mr. Davenport studied with Stanley Cornett.
