Romeo & Juliette ~ Capulet ~ Opera Idaho

Veteran baritone Adelmo Guidarelli commanded his every scene as Comte Capulet and found a meaningful and affecting emotional arc transforming from the domineering father to the grieving patriarch, who sowed the seeds that led to his own consuming sorrow. Although, Mr. Guidarelli was slightly indisposed, his burnished legato singing still made its effect, and his domineering proclamations were overwhelmingly powerful as they rang out in the theatre. His keening over the bodies of first Tybalt, then Juliet were among the most honestly heartfelt moments in the entire show.

La Cenerentola ~ Don Magnifico ~ Opera Las Vegas

A true buffo, Adelmo Guidarelli was a hysterically funny Don Magnifico whose great aria "Miei rampolli femminini"

gave him a chance to play with his role and its fast patter. Thus, he showed the audience his excellent dramatic timing

and various facets of Magnifico's not-so-glorious character while singing fast and loud. Of course, he won the drinking contest as well.

~Taminophile (2014)

Tosca ~ Sacristan ~ Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra

Adelmo Guidarelli’s entrance as the Sacristan at the beginning of Act I put the audience at ease immediately with his joviality, as he worked his way through the theater with a dust rag, wiping off the woodwork, creating the illusion that  everyone was seated in an Italian church. His voice was both deep and powerful, cutting easily through the orchestra with a pleasing timbre.

Janine Wanée ~ The Boston Musical Intelligencer (2014)

The Ballad of Baby Doe ~ Horace Tabor ~ Winter Opera St. Louis

Baritone Adelmo Guidarelli was a first-rate Horace Tabor; not surprising, given that he’s one of the few opera singers who can lay claim to a MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) award for a cabaret show. You don’t get that without some theatre smarts.
