The role is so rich with erotic smarm that a good Scarpia can easily steal the show, which is exactly what baritone Bisser Georgiev did. With aristocratic phrasing and muscular, focused tone, Georgiev's powerful seduction scenes in Act 2 were palpably intense.” by Tom Huizenga- Monday, January 29, 2007.
