Birmingham Hippodrome (09/11/2016)
Luis Cansino as Macbeth, with dark voice was growing in dignity and vocal greatness throughout the night, heading towards its violent conclusion: that was of heroic singing.

Mayflower Theater Southampton (02/11/2016)
Spanish baritone Luis Cansino is an impressive Macbeth emotionally veering betwee powerful determination self-doubt insecurity, and eventually proving no match for his ruthlessly cunning wife.
Jane Sullivan ("Southern Daily Echo")
The Oxford New Theater (26/10/2016)
Luis Cansino as Macbeth, was particularly revealing in turn, inhabiting the role dramatically and vocally with great force and considerable beauty of tone.
Mel Cooper ("Plays to See")
Luis Cansino interpreted a Macbeth, at first, unsure of himself and reluctant to take the role of King prophesied for him. He exuded a confident voice that guided him through the development of the role of Macbeth, to accept their fate, first, to rule, and then to be defeated.
Curtis Rogers ("Classical Source")
Bristol Hippodrome (12/10/2016)
Luis Cansino as Macbeth grows in menace and stage presence throughout the opera. He presents, for the first time as a freedom fighter, who lives in the woods with a bullet-proof vest and trained to the business of killing. This staging, suggests a soldier with violence clean, free of guilt, and that he has done nothing to prepare for the new style, blood-leeting, which is about to adopt. He is in charge of the artists with the sensational voices.
Andrew Batten-Foster ("B 24/7")
With well controlled vocality, at all times, Luis Cansino'sMacbeth, offered occasionally, the brilliant victorious soldier and man consumed by ambition to become King. This does not prevent that there are many moments in which the delivery and the singing of Luis Cansino were a joy to listen to.
Gerry Parker ("The Bristol Post")
Welsh National Opera (10/09/2016)
The production is saved by some fine singers, mainly from Luis Cansino in the title role, baritone of an honest instrument, dressed as portly squaddie.
Alexandra Coghlan ("The Spectator")
El barítono Luis Cansino, en su debut en el personaje, sumó a su gran capacidad actoral su no menos grande calidad vocal, mostrándonos las dos caras de Macbeth: el despiadado caudillo militar y el hombre sometido a los desvaríos de su esposa. Su noble línea de canto, soberbios agudos y asentados graves, manifiestan a un cantante en plenitud de facultades.
Federico Figueroa ("Opera World")
Spanish baritone Luis Cansino sang with a convincing sense of Verdi’s idiom. He was at his best in the opera’s closing scene, facing up to inevitability of defeat and death.
Glyn Pursglove ("Senn & Heard International")
The baritone Luis Cansino is as sturdy in the title role as the Birman Oak, unsettled by the witches’ prophecy but in thrall to his power-hungry wife.
Rebecca Franks ("The Times")
In the title role, Luis Cansino his baritone has a Verdian nobility of line.
Rian Evans ("The Guardian")
Luis Cansino delivers a rigorous and considered performance as the title role, increasingly tormented as his reign disintegrates.
