L.V. Beethoven Minth Symphony,
W.A. Mozart Requiem,
Musically, the second part has more interest than the first, of which we reviewed the aria "Ah, la sotte existence" by Alberto Arrabal as basso bufo, a voice rich in timbres and firm and colorful handling in all registers.
Francisco Mesa; Diario Bahía de Cádiz, 11-24-2018
Alberto Arrabal, basso bufo, is the "pathetic Krakamiche sorcerer", who does not succeed in one of the attempts to use his obsolete knowledge of magic and necromancy. A good part of the dynamics of the work of Viardot rests on this personage, that incarnated by Arrabal, manages to convince the public, thanks to its stupendous dramatic capacity. In the song he shined especially in the second act, especially in the duo with Stella, his daughter in the libretto of Tourgeniev.
Jesús Sánchez-Ferragut; Diario de Sevilla,
From the vocal cast, Alberto Arrabal [in the photo] stood out in the leading role, with his powerful, round and very well nuanced voice, as well as a great theatrical performance.

Great Bartolo by Alberto Arrabal, imposing in the vocal, both in volume and timbre, perfect recitatives, very complicated indeed, and that offered a spectacular execution of his difficult aria, absolutely unpolluted technically and brilliant in its end. In the acting is funny, making a very internalized creation, let's say that leads the horns with contained dignity and some perplexity that little by little is becoming malignancy buried but very obvious to the viewer.
