«"...Spontan sprang der mexikanische Tenor Victor Campos-Leal ein, der in Breslau gerade für "Der fliegende Holländer" probt. "Er glaubte, dass er zur Generalprobe anreist, dabei war es schon für die Premiere", sagte Intendantin Sarah Kettner. Um es vorweg zu nehmen, Campos-Leal ließ in keiner Sekunde spüren, Einspringer zu sein. Gekonnt sang er seine Rolle und trug neben der wunderbaren Maria Kublashvili als Gilda ... zum großen Erfolg der Premiere bei."»

«Südostbayerische Städtetheater Passau/Landshut - La Straniera - ARTURO VICTOR CAMPOS LEAL, weiterer Trumpf der Neuinszenierung, erwies sich als überaus respektabler Tenorpartner mit gutem Stilgefühl, klarer Gesangslinie und schönem messe di voce, das für diesen Vokalstil unerlässlich ist. Der junge Mexikaner, Gewinner des Francisco-Araiza-Wettbewerbs, ist derzeit an der Breslauer Oper engagiert und empfahl sich mit dieser geschmackvollen, technisch sehr sauberen Interpretation des Arturo für größere Aufgaben.»
