LA BOHEME - RODOLFO - DALA FLODA OPERAFEST
"Mads Wighus, who quite recently changed from baritone to tenor, sported a powerful lirico-spinto voice with brilliant, ringing top notes, but also the ability, just as his Mimì, to scale down and sing softly. The first act finale was a real treat."
MADAMA BUTTERFLY - PINKERTON - OPERAFEST LISBOA
Norwegian Mads Wighus plays a Pinkerton weaker and more pitiful than a real bastard: he finally seems overwhelmed by the tragedy he has caused, his final repentance seems very sincere. This characterization of the character accommodates well with a certain softness in the accent ... The performance is convincing, with in particular a well-mastered “ Addio, fiorito asil ”.
