«...Del baritono Gabriele Nani, un Figaro dalla fisicità molto adatta al ruolo dell'intraprendente "factotum" nella casa di Don Bartolo, si è apprezzata la voce e una certa studiata spavalderia.»
Fabiana Dellavalle MESSAGGERO Veneto (2016)
«...Di rilievo il Figaro del più esperto Gabriele Nani, giovane artista dal buon timbro vocale, buon fraseggio e linea di canto.»
Sabino Lenoci. L'OPERA International Magazine (2016)
«....il fallait toute la talentueuse autorité d’un Gabriele Nani pour imposer la noire perfidie d’Enrico. Implacable de férocité, maître dans l’art de corser un médium dans « Cruda, funesta smania », ce baryton de belle étoffe investit son personnage d’une densité dramatique habitée par un indéniable vécu, que ne dément pas l’éloquence de sa diction.»
