Grammy Award-winning baritone Adelmo Guidarelli is one of opera’s busiest singing actors, sought after for the Italian character parts in operas by Donizetti, Rossini, and Mozart, including the title role in Don Pasquale, Dulcamara in L’elisir d’amore, Don Magnifico in La Cenerentola, Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Le nozze di Figaro, Leporello in Don Giovanni, and Don Alphonso in Così fan tutte. Other notable roles include the title roles in Falstaff and Gianni Schicchi, the Sacristan in Tosca, Benoit/Alcindoro inLa bohème, and Sulpice in La fille du régiment.

Last season’s engagements included Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia with both Shreveport Opera and Gulfshore Opera, Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte with Cedar Rapids Opera, Judge Turpin in Opera Tampa’s Sweeney Todd, and Kiss Me Kate with Central City Opera. This season, he will sing Don Magnifico in Toledo Opera’s La Cenerentola and Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia with both Virginia Opera and in his return to Tri-Cities Opera. [read more...]


"...deep, abounding voice..." – St. Petersburg Examiner

Le nozze di Figaro – “Guidarelli played the quick-witted Figaro with just the right balance of levelheadedness and tenderness. His deep, abounding voice was appropriately masculine and vigorous.”


"...stole nearly every scene..." – Taminophile

L’occasione fa il ladro – “Adelmo Guidarelli was charming as Parmenione’s Schleporello-like valet, Martino. A veteran comedy performer, Mr. Guidarelli stole nearly every scene he was in.”


"...a flexible voice and tremendous gusto..." – Greenville News

La Cenerentola – “Adelmo Guidarelli brings a flexible voice and tremendous gusto to the role of the stepfather Don Magnifico.”


"...a hysterically funny Don Magnifico..." – Broadway World

La Cenerentola – “A true buffo, Adelmo Guidarelli was a hysterically funny Don Magnifico whose great aria “Miei rampolli femminini” gave him a chance to play with his role and its fast patter. Thus, he showed the audience his excellent dramatic timing and various facets of Magnifico’s not-so-glorious character while singing fast and loud.”


" attractive, full-bodied, powerhouse sound...” – The Virginia Gazette

Carmen – “As Morales/Zuniga, Adelmo Guidarelli delivered an attractive, full-bodied, powerhouse sound!.”
