"Ma partiamo per gradi. Il grandioso Diego Torre sostituisce, questa sera, Roberto Aronica regalando una serata meravigliosa sin dalla prima nota e confermandosi già con la celeberrima “Recondita armonia” che strappa un lunghissimo applauso, il quale si farà ancora più lungo nel terzo atto, dove su “E lucean le stelle” verrà reclamato ed eseguito un bis bello da far uscire le lacrime a quasi tutta la sala."
"As the painter Cavaradossi, Diego Torre surpassed the first cast’s tenor, Rafael Davila. His “Recondita armonia” came off with polished lyricism and incisive high notes, a pristine performance that expressed the happiness that would be shattered in a few hours. “E lucevan le stelle,” is such a familiar number that it may be tempting to just blast it out, nail the high notes and enjoy the applause. But Torre did much more with it, bringing great expressivity to the anguished low tones in which he begins to remember his time with Tosca, allowing one high note to melt away and holding another remarkably long without stretching the music out of shape"
"Opera Australia regular Diego Torre was a particular highlight, his penetrating, burnished tenor unleashed seemingly effortlessly. The change in timbre he produced in the opening of the Hostias – from gently soft-edged to brightly gleaming – was exquisite."
"Diego Torre is about to become a member of an exclusive club of operatic tenors. Following in the footsteps of greats including Beniamino Gigli, Placido Domingo and Jonas Kaufman, Torre is to have his name inscribed on the honour board of singers who have sung Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci on the same night."
"Diego Torre is a truly great tenor.Last night he sang Radames, he rehearsed Lucia di Lamermoor all day today and sings Edgardo on Friday night as well as Radames on Saturday night and tonight he took over the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto"
"Powerhouse tenor Diego Torre gives arguably his strongest performance to date, the rock solid quality of his vocal technique resulting in a thrilling performance. Shortly after his first entrance, Torre brings the house down with a searing rendition of “Recondita armonia,” the final ringing high notes all the better for being given ample room to breathe."
