"Shahbazi's voice is full, voluminous, timbre personal and beautiful. In the acoustic foyer his long lines were immaculate."
In Review: Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
DIE DEUTSCHE BÜHNE, 2018
"Finally, the young countertenor Cameron Shahbazi as Disinganno: there is a world career on the rise. Charm, stage presence, unbelievable colour spectrum, tremendous enamel in the middle register... a big discovery of the Theater Aachen."
"In top form tonight, the countertenor Cameron Shahbazi as a Disinganno, presented above all the elegiac "earwigs" with haunting beauty."
AACHENER NACHRICHTEN, 2018
"Shahbazi sang the role with a dark coloured timbre. Above all, his great "Crede l'uom"... remains in the ear.."

In Review: Concours Opéra Jeunes Espoires
OPÉRA GRAND AVIGNON
"Cameron Shahbazi, magnificent Canadian countertenor, captivated our attention from his first aria, a rare extract from A Midsummer Night's Dream by Britten. An intriguing personality, this 25 year-old artist has distinguished himself by his mysterious scenic presence, his voluptuous timbre and his highly studied interpretation."
"In the second part of the evening, the audience, under his charm, waited impatiently for his return, under the sign of Handel: the tragic "Stille Amare" of Tolomeo. Cameron Shahbazi has brilliantly presented himself, with a stylistic rigour, and expressive power, which have earned him two well deserved awards: the Révélation and the Grand Avignon."
OPÉRA MAGAZINE (FR), 2017
In Review: Il Giasone
"Countertenor Cameron Shahbazi created a highly sympathetic lead, using his clear, flexible voice to portray the young, impetuous lover who vacillates between intense ardor and indecision."
SAN DIEGO STORY, 2017
"[Cameron's] unique quality is confidence. His confidence is without fear, able to seize opportunities, yet maintain respect."
GRAND MAGAZINE, 2011
"It’s a unique set of passions that will almost certainly land him in the spotlight one day."
