Manos Kia

Kavalierbariton

"Jeder Mensch, ein Künstler "(Joseph Beuys)
Hire Manos Kia ›
«Ein anderes Kaliber ist da schon der Scarpia von Manos Kia. Hier steht ein aussdrucksstarker „Kerl“ auf der Bühne, der seine Partie vollkommen verinnerlicht hat. Sein rauchig-kerniger Bariton hat keine Mühen die Orchesterwogen zu durchschreiten und er demonstriert mit kleiner Geste, wie großes Theater funktioniert.»

«Ebenfalls ein Gast war Manos Kia, der dem Schaunard mit sehr markantem Bariton und attraktiver Bühnenerscheinung überdurchschnittliches Profil sicherte.»

«Manos Kia ist als Figaro ein dunkelhaariger Latin Lover mit wohligem Bariton, der seine Glutaugen verzückt aufblitzen lässt bei jeder neuen Idee, die er dem Grafen auftischen kann»
