“Fabian Robles brought a
strong lower register to the title role, which often calls for one, and his high notes rang out
Donizetti's "L'ELISIR D'AMORE"
"All the characters were most believable and played their roles to perfection. Nemorino’s facial expressions made you feel exactly what he was feeling or possibly took you back in time when you experienced unrequited love."
Miramar Performing Arts Center, Miramar, FL
Rossini’s "LA CENERENTOLA"
"The tenor Fabián Robles, singing Ramiro, revealed a voice of uncommon liquidity and resonance for a Rossini tenor, and he has a sure way with coloratura."
(Aspen Music Festival) - THE FINANCIAL TIMES, LONDON
"Another young talent, tenor Fabian Robles, successfully debuts with MLO in this production, and judging by the applause we will possibly enjoy his presence in this city's stages frequently." - The New Herald
"[Marina] blended in the duet with Fabian Robles to caressing effect…. Playing the lovelorn sailor Jorge, Fabian Robles gathered strength as the opera progressed and displayed passion and dramatic fervor in his confrontation with Marina near the opera’s finale. His top range has ring and flexibility. There is real squillo in his tone and he can spin a bel canto line elegantly. Propelled by Valdes and Robles’ strong vocalism, the Act I quartet was one of the highlights of the evening. The inebriated sailors during Robles and Martinez’s vigorous drinking song and the final uniting of the lovers were especially vividly pictured."
- South Florida Classical review
"Great Voices from Opera to Broadway":

–Kathy Newman, Palmetto Opera; Columbia, SC
Mozart’s “COSI FAN TUTTE”
"Tenor Fabián Robles played the role of Ferrando with joviality and cheerfulness... Mr. Robles brought an operatic vocal force to his role."
(Opera New Jersey) -Nancy Plum
"Fabián Robles's bright tenor negotiated Ferrando's difficult tessitura with aplomb."
"Fabián Robles sang and acted with great comic gusto!"
Bizet's "LES PECHEURS DE PERLES"
"By the time Robles sang the opera’s greatest hit, “Je crois entendre encore,” he had located enough gravitas to keep us listening all evening long. -John DeMers
"…tenor Fabian Robles as the young lover, Nadir… His aria in act two (Je crois entendre encore) was simply stunning in terms of his tone and artistry." -Robin Lowe, Opera Pulse
"Robles was a very nice find! His dulcet tenor is bright, clear and lyrical. He ended easily with panache to much applause.
“TRIBUTE TO PAVAROTTI”
“The show was very well applauded by the audience! This was truly the HIGHLIGHT of the entire season!”
-Jessical Gloria, Director (Miramar Cultural Center, FL)
"Throughout the evening, the spirit of the late Italian tenor (and later pop star) was there in each of them, with drama, occasional humor, and the wonderful singing... Robles was featured on the arias that called for high notes, like the Aria of Tonio from "La fille du regiment" that gave Pavarotti the nickname "King of the High Cs"...
-Dave Howell (Special to The Morning Call)
"Fabian Robles was wonderful--what a beautiful, consistent, lovely sound--truly bel canto. He will always be welcome here!"
-Daytona Beach Symphony Society
Rossini’s “IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA”
What a successful event! The acting was wonderful and engaging. At one point, a patron's phone went off during the show. Tenor Fabian Robles (Almaviva) incorporated a reaction to the phone ringing into the part on stage - it was terrific! - it was another fabulous opera performance!
-Jean Esslinger, President, Board of Directors Opera New Hampshire , Palace Theatre, Manchester, NH
Verdi’s “LA TRAVIATA”
Tonight's performance of LA TRAVIATA was astonishing… Fabian Robles was a fitting Alfredo both in looks and voice, particularly touching as well was the entire scene with Germont...The audience shouted their approval at the final curtain.
