Artistic director and musical director "Orchestra Antonio Vivaldi"
NORMA - TEATRO MASSIMO
PALERMO - APRIL 2023
"The discovery and, at the same time, the catalyzing element of the night, is the baton of the very young Lorenzo Passerini, who has a barbaric, passionate vision of “Norma”, one could say it is almost Verdi-like. [...] The Orchestra of Teatro Massimo is at its best, in one of the best nights in recent years. It responds with an avalanche of wonderful sounds, "as the roar of thunder", following the phrasing inputs that come from the podium, as if subjugated by the strong personality of the conductor, which radiates there. And we are ready to bet - we will hear about him again in the future." (Giuseppe Guggino)
LA SONNAMBULA - TEATRO SAN CARLO
NAPLES - JANUARY 2022
"[...] what happened last Sunday, January 30th, at the San Carlo theater will remain in the memory of those who were present as one of the most exciting evenings in the recent history of the theater. [...] At this point, it would be out of place to assess the performances and take into account any vocal imprecision; on such an occasion, it is better to focus on the positive aspects, starting with the conduction of Lorenzo Passerini, who gave the score a truly theatrical character, at times with a brilliant instrumental background, at others framing the voices with imposing sound effects. The Orchestra of the San Carlo Theater has found again the form that lately seemed to be lost, with various dynamics, an endless range of colors and a perfect interconnection with the stage, so that in some moments they seemed to breathe together." (Bruno Tredicine, OperaClick)
Faust - Sydney Opera House
February / March 2020
" The conductor, Lorenzo Passerini, was in absolute control. He managed to convince the entire cast - orchestra, choir and soloists - to perform with dynamic variations, musicality and compelling emotional contrasts. It is no exaggeration to say that the his orchestral interpretation of Gounod's disturbing opera is one of the best of Opera Australia's last years. Bravo! "
