Other notable roles include Falstaff in Falstaff, Gianni Schicchi in Gianni Schicchi, the Sacristan in Tosca, Benoit and Alcindoro in La Bohème, and Sulpice in The Daughter of the Regiment. 

Last season, Guidarelli performed the role of Zuniga in Carmen for Salt Marsh Opera, Don Magnifico in La Cenerentola for Tri-Cities Opera and Syracuse Opera, Sacristan in Tosca for Opera Las Vegas, Bartolo in Le nozze di Figaro for Shreveport Opera, and had a role debut as Germont in La Traviata for Opera Theatre of Connecticut.

"...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!.”
