“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.”
