«In his role as Marcello, Vinicius Atique showed the expressiveness, power and matisses required by the character, with a clear and powerful emission, with full acting domain.»
Eduardo Balestena - Associacão de Críticos Musicais da Argentina (2018)
«Vinicius Atique was an interesting Marcello both in the dramatic and in the vocal aspects and, in this section has merits to highlight: a surpluss of volume, a very gratifying timbre and a lot of expressiveness that were revealed in each of his interventions.»
Prof Christian Lauria - Opera World revista de ópera internacional (2018)
«The choosing of the soloist for this work is beyond complex. It requires a singer with resilient enough to stay an hour and twenty minutes onstage singing without any breaks. To add some more difficulty, on this staging from São Paulo Opera House, he had to sing lying down, dancing, acting and walking up and down the stage all the time. This herculean task was accomplished with honors by baritone Vinícius Atique. He has shown a voice at the pinnacle of development: clear, pure and showed a voice with a unique timbre. He has transformed the harshness of the german language into lyric poetry. He has Acted and paraded with an unmatched talent, in the most soft parts, he looked like a Jesus Christ with his long mane of hair. Vinícius Atique, the best chamber music singer in Brazil.»
