Internationale Händel-Festspiele Karlsruhe - Contertenor

Der Countertenor Cameron Schahbazi empfahl sich für weitere Aufgaben, er überzeugte durch sein weiches und klangvolles Timbre und seinen charismatischen Vortrag.

- Die Rheinpfalz, Karl Georg Berg, Nike Luber


Theater Aachen - Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno - Disinganno

Als Gast hat der persisch-kanadische Countertenor Cameron Shahbazi die Partie des Disinganno übernommen. Shahbazi gestaltet die Partie mit dunkel eingefärbtem Timbre. Im Ohr bleibt vor allem sein großartiges "Crede l'uom", mit dem er Bellezza auf den Pfad der Tugend holen will.

- Online Musik Magazin, Thomas MolkeRead the article

Schließlich der junge Countertenor Cameron Shahbazi als Disinganno: da ist eine Weltkarriere zu riechen. Charme, Bühnenpräsenz, unglaubliches Farbspektrum, ungeheurer Schmelz in der Mittellage, augenzwinkerndes, stets inhaltlich begründbares Umkippen in die Bruststimme in der Tiefe, eine große Entdeckung des Aachener Theaters.

- Die Deutsche Bühne, Andreas FalentinRead the article
