Presented by Bay Street Productions in Australia, in Melbourne 1995 & 1996, and Adelaide in 1996
WHAT THE REVIEWS SAID........... The Melbourne Age critic Michael J. Easton.
"... the real star of the show is Dominic Natoli. Totally at home with the popular Italian arias, he also graces lesser airs with a great sense of style. Vesti la giubba from I Pagliacci was one of the musical highlights of the evening and for those obsessed with stratospheric tenor notes, they are here in abundance ...."
The Melbourne Sunday Sun Herald Critic Bob Crimeen said:
Salute hits high note
".... His singing lacks none of Lanza's passion”
Herald Sun Critic Dina Ross said:
Super Mario Lovers
“DN takes on the persona, and songs, of the tenor Mario Lanza .... in full vocal flight ..... (he) sang with great tenderness .. an instant and easy rapport with the audience."
Jill Sinclair in Opera Opera:
"Dominic Natoli is headed for the top! ... a strong tenor, capable of great warmth and sensitivity - and does he know how to work audiences! The charm and sincerity of the popular numbers ... contrasted dramatically with the arias ... with ringing top notes and plenty of power in reserve, the audience were ecstatic ..."
