"But the success of the evening was without a doubt Marco di Felice (Gerard) who perfectly lead the psycological situations wich he confront to: domestic, revolutionary, man-in-love etc.His voice is splendid, and in the aria “Nemico della patria” where he acts out his introspection, his emotions flow very naturally, his voice is grounded with intelligence: a great moment."

"(...) the most interesting character is Gerard (…) son of the soul's torments. The agitation of his soul, the palette and the nuances of feelings that come throught are translated magnifincentely by Marco di Felice's voice and by the finest of his acting."

"The first one to stand out is Marco di Felice as Carlo Gerard, who is probably the most important role in this Opera. It is a role of a man who oscillates without stopping between the desire of get revenge, passioned egoism and his soul greatness. His voice is impressively powerfull and noir, it gives him imediatelly a leader's stature and a primary importance."

"(...) imposing, in voice or presence, (is) baritone Marco di Felice as Nabucco. Wheter in scenes of madness and spiritual awakening, Di Felice brings a magisterial quality to Nabucco that allows us to perceive a king in either case, much as we never lose sight of the nobility in Shakespeare's beleaguared King Lear."

"Ideal partner in the passionate dialogues between such a’ diva‘ and her persecutor, Marco di Felice flaunted a real natural baritone voice , fine, homogeneous, extensive wonderfully flexible and even piercing in the top notes; despite this was his debut in this role, he was a huge successful Scarpia, a refined seducer and a terrible evil power, being intuitively illuminated during the performance, so that he reveals a strikingly commanding personality on stage."

LA REPUBBLICA – november 12 2006
«CAV & PAG", as they say jokingly oversea means "Cavalleria Rusticana" and "Pagliacci", it's not the most spectacular title for the inauguration of the Arena di Verona, but it worked all the same, ensuring a full house (13.500 spectators)(....) More homogeneus the cast of "Pagliacci" featuring Svetla Vassileva as Nedda, Josè Cura as Canio, Alberto Mastromarino as Tonio, Cristiano Olivieri as Arlecchino, Marco di Felice as Silvio. Our favourite was by far Marco di Felice, who confidently interpreted the many different shades and colours of the passionate duetto with Nedda.»

«[...] The baritone, Marco di Felice, endowed with a warm and voluminous voice, was able to interpret the role of Don Carlo with class and determination, offering an excellent performance in his acting as well as singing.
