Tamino in Die Zauberflote Opera Bellas Artes

In the vocal part in the opening performance of the 11th, was pleasantly surprising, the participation of tenor Ernesto Ramirez native of Jalisco in the role of Tamino. His beautiful, warm timbre, body and roundness of his emission, were combined qualities as a subtle, musical interpretation determined and refined singing art taste.

En la parte vocal, en la función de estreno del día 11, sorprendió gratamente la participación del tenor tapatío Ernesto Ramírez en el rol de Tamino. Su bello y cálido timbre, el cuerpo y la redondez de su emisión, se mostraron como cualidades combinadas con una interpretación musical, sutil, de técnica resuelta y refinado gusto canoro.

Prince Shou Chong The Land of smiles by Lehar

Tenor Ernesto Ramirez has a wonderfully fluid line and brilliant high notes, while soprano Lara Ciekiewicz matched him high note for high note.  They made a sympathetic couple both visually and in the way their voices blended, and ably supported by the TOT orchestra led by Derek Bate.

Nadir in Bizet's The Pearl Fishers

"Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez is a musician who has clearly thought out the why and how of every note he sings. Not only was his Je crois entendre delivered with touching poignancy, his high Bs alternately sung in head and full voice, but his rendition of the Au fond du temple saint duet with Polegato brought goosebumps." 
Leonard Turnevicius, The Hamilton Spectator, March 11, 2013


"Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez sings the role of Nadir with a gorgeous warmth of tone and exquisite phrasing. This is an artist clearly comfortable working within the classic vocal tradition of French grand opera where lyricism generally trumps show-off virtuosity. This fine young talent can, of course, thrill and does so in virtually each and every one of his many genuinely affecting appearances spotted throughout the Hamilton-originated production. The great landmark tenor-baritone duet Au fond du temple saint ("In the depths of the holy temple") is performed with an engaging bittersweetness by Ramírez and Polegato, a potent quality that gives the justifiably cherished piece its compelling emotional reverberation."

Soloist in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with Grand Rapids Symphony

"Four guest singers ... tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez...all with sweet voices, joined the performance. Ramírez' resplendent tenor [was a] nice touch." 
Jeffrey Kaczmarczyk, Michigan Entertainment, November 12, 2012

Leicester in Donizetti's Maria Stuarda with Pacific Opera Victoria

" the dramatically taxing role of Leicester, the Mexican/American Edgar Ernesto Ramírez showed himself to be that rarity, a tenore di grazia who combines dramatic flair, vocal charm, and musical taste--what a pleasure it is to encounter a hero in an Italian opera who, without shortchanging the effect of his big moments, never for a moment descends into shouting!"
Bernard Jacobson,, April 17, 2012


"Yes, Maria Stuarda is a diva-opera, but Edgar Ernesto Ramírez as Leicester is a revelation. Of Mexican-American descent, Ramírez's velvet tenor voice communicates aching romantic love."
Brent Schaus,, April 18, 2012


"Mexican-born tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez is at once virile and sensitive as Leicester, impressing not so much for raw power as for suave, nuanced lyricism."
Kevin Bazzana,, April, 22, 2012

Nemorino in Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore with Opera Angers-Nantes

"A touching and radiant Nemorino, the young Mexican tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez is a revelation. From the beginning of his first aria, we are charmed by his luminous voice, perfectly placed, high and clear, magnified by a mastered legato and a superb sense of the text, capable of the most refined nuances, the sound production always smooth and on the breath, vocalizations with technical and musical accomplishment allowing him to suspend time in his aria 'Una furtiva lagrima', magnificently phrased and overwhelming with emotion. He gives the impression of being one with his character, which he embodies with a loyal truth and a touching fragility. He is a new talent to follow very closely."
Nicolas Grienenberger,, May 14 2011

("Nemorino touchant et rayonnant, le jeune ténor mexicain Edgar Ernesto Ramírez fait figure de révélation. Dès le début de son premier air, on est charmés par sa voix lumineuse, parfaitement placée, haute et claire, magnifiée par un legato de grande école et un superbe sens du texte, capable des nuances les plus raffinées, à l'émission toujours moelleuse et sur le souffle, jusque dans des vocalises sans reproche, un accomplissement technique et musical lui permettant de suspendre le temps à travers 'une Furtive lagrima', magnifiquement phrasée et bouleversante d'émotion. Il donne l'impression de ne faire qu'un avec son personnage, qu'il incarne avec une vérité attachante et une fragilité attendrissante. Un nouveau talent à suivre de très près."
Nicolas Grienenberger,, May 14 2011

Javier in Moreno Torroba's Luisa Fernanda with Toronto Operetta Theatre

"Vocally, the revelation of the evening was Ramírez, a true Italianate tenor with endless lung-power and a heroic tone. His triumphant entrance aria, "De este apacible rincón de Madrid," drew such thunderous applause and bravos Ramírez should have a bright future ahead of him. At the end, he was able to colour his voice so delicately that his contrition seemed completely believable." 
Christopher Hoile, The Wholenote, March 2011


"Mexican tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez as Javier is a real talent" 
Paula Citron, Classical 96.3, March 17 2011

Don Ramiro in Rossini's Cenerentola at the Rossini in Wildbad Belcanto Opera Festival

"It was as clear as ever before: If Pesaro is a meeting of world stars, so is Bad Wildbad in early development. A vocal event for which there may…be only two gifted tenors:…Edgar Ernesto Ramírez exceeds his colleagues, he is even more winning and higher and brighter as Ramiro in "La Cenerentola". One would think that the Artistic Director should queue at the stage door with a contract in hand." 
Heinz W. Koch, Opernwelt, September 2010 / Badische&Zeitung, July 21, 2010

("Dabei wurde so deutlich wie selten zuvor: Ist Pesaro ein Meeting der Weltstars, so sind in Bad Wildbad in statu nascendi zu erleben. Ein Vokalereignis, für das hier (außer Spyres) nur zwei begnadete Tenöre stehen mögen: der so samtene wie stratosphärensichere Gustavo Quaresma Ramos an diesem Doppelabend, der nur von seinem womöglich noch gewinnenderen und noch höhenstrahlenderen Kollegen Edgar Ernesto Ramírez als Ramiro in "La Cenerentola" übertroffen wird. Da, denkt man sich, müssten unsere Intendanten am Bühneneingang Schlange stehen, die Vertragsentwürfe in der Hand" 
Heinz W. Koch, Opernwelt, September 2010 / Badische&Zeitung, July 21, 2010)


"Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez designed his role of the noble prince with lyrical cantilena." 
Ruhr, Martin Roeber, July 16, 2010

("Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez gestaltet den edlen Prinzen mit lyrischer Kantilene." 
Ruhr, Martin Roeber, July 16, 2010)


"In the other roles, there was solid expertise. The Mexican tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez brought his distinctive Rossini voice, especially in the impressive heights of the role, to advantage" 
Pforzheimer Zeitung July 16, 2010

("In den übrigen Rollen herrschte solide Kompetenz. Der mexikanische Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez brachte seine prägnante Rossini-Stimme vor allem in den Höhenflügen der Figur eindrucksvoll zur Geltung" 
Pforzheimer Zeitung July 16, 2010)


"So give the Italian mezzo-soprano Serena Malfi and the Mexican tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez rise to the highest hopes, to become a new dream couple of belcanto opera. As Angelina (called Cenerentola) and Don Ramiro lead…the opera audience through a moving transformation game and finds its expressive end in the grand gesture of forgiveness" 
Redaction Regio News CW July 2010

("So geben die italienischen Mezzosopranistin Serena Malfi und der mexikanische Tenor Edgar Ernesto Ramírez Anlass zu den schönsten Hoffnungen, ein neues Traumpaar der Belcanto-Oper zu werden. Als Angelina (genannt Cenerentola) und Don Ramiro führen die beiden hervorragenden jungen Solisten das Opernpublikum durch ein rührendes Verwandlungsspiel, das in der großen Geste des Verzeihens ihr ausdrucksstarkes Ende findet." 
Redaction Regio News CW July 2010)


"Prince Ramiro is Edgar Ernesto Ramírez with a pleasant dark tone and with an encouraging and grounded technique, clear phrasing and musical sensitivity and thus young in his appearance yet with a very advanced vocal weight, demonstrating proper aristocratic restraint." 
Udo Klebes, Der Neue Merker, July 2010

(Den Prinzen Ramiro gibt Edgar Ernesto Ramírez mit angenehm dunkler Klangfarbe und erfreulich breitem Fundament, klarer Phrasierung und musikalischer Einfühlsamkeit und damit ein für seine jugendliche Erscheinung schon sehr fortgeschrittenes vokales Gewicht und angemessene aristokratische Zurückhaltung. 
Udo Klebes, Der Neue Merker, July 2010)

Nemorino in Sarasota Opera's L'elisir d'amore

"Edgar Ernesto Ramírez was born to play the role of Nemorino. The Mexican tenor has an innocent open-faced quality, perfect for the gullible lovelorn peasant whose love for the wealthy Adina is not returned. Ramírez has a flexible and vibrant middleweight tenor…he handled the rapid-fire ensembles well and proved consistently amusing without crossing the line to mugging." 
Lawrence A. Johnson, South Florida Classical Review March 2009

Decio in Toronto Opera in Concert's La vestale (by Mercadante)
