“It is then that we really discover the revelation of talent with tenor Airam Hernández (Edgardo) who, attracting attention with his beautiful ‘Sulla tomba che rinserra…’ from the beginning, asserts himself as an exceptional singer. More than a superb singer with an impeccable vocal line, perfect diction, impressive projection, he dares an overwhelming interpretation of vocal colors, tension and authenticity. Qualities that are usually recognized in experienced singers, whilst the Spanish tenor is singing the part for the first time. It was necessary to hear Airam Hernández in the final scene, when he discovers the disappearance of Lucia. Attacking mezza-voce a heartbreaking call to his lost love, without pathos, with just the intense truth of this disappearance, the Canarian tenor proves to be a formidable singer.  An artist to follow.”

Jacques Schmitt, ResMusica




Airam Hernández has quickly become one of the most promising young tenors of his generation. The uniqueness of his timbre and his highly developed musicality has given him a place of honor among the rising stars of the opera world, ever since the recent start of his career his house and role debuts as Edgardo in Lucia de Lammermoor at Opéra de Lausanne, his house and role debut as Belmonte in Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail at Teatro de San Carlo di Napoli, with the legendary staging of Maestro Giorgio Strehler; and his role debut as Faust in Charles Gounod’s homonymous masterpiece in Tenerife.
