Sein Operndebut hatte der junge Tenor Victor Campos Leal als BORSA in ‚Rigoletto’ am Opernhaus Mexico mit dem Carlos Chavez Orchester unter der musikalischen Leitung von Carlos Lomonaco. Seitdem sang er hier zahlreiche Rollen, wobei seine Auftritte als PINKERTON in ‚Madama Butterfly’ (u.a. mit dem Ensemble Arpeggio und dem Sinfonieorchester von Juarez) und als CONTE ALMAVIVA in ‚IL Barbiere di Siviglia’ besonders zu erwähnen sind.

In Mexico City geboren, begann Victor Campos Leal seine musikalische Ausbildung an der National School of Music der Nationalen Universität Mexico (UNAM). Bereits während seines Studiums erarbeitete er im Opernworkshop des Maestros Enrique Jaso die Partien des DUCA (Rigoletto), des DON JOSÉ (Carmen), des ARLECCHINO (I Pagliacci), des PACO (La Vida Breve), des BELMONTE (Die Entführung aus dem Serail) und EDGARDO (Lucia di Lammermoor).

Ein schön timbrierter lyrischer Tenor mit Schmelz und hervorragender Pianokultur. Sein „Hostias et preces tibi“ war vom Feinsten, ebenso das „ingemisco“. Online Merker

Landestheater Niederbayern – Anna Bolena - PERCY
Victor Campos Leal (Percy) provided the play with tenoral magic, singing both with verve and stylistic sensitivity. The technically delicate part, that contains some real pitfalls, fitted his voice well.
Opernglas 1/2019 J.-M. Wienecke
Landestheater Passau – Anna Bolena - PERCY
Brilliant Victor Campos-Leal at her side as Percy, who also threw himself vigorously into the part. He put in some generously exploding high peaks ( even 3 times hte high D) in his beautiful vocal line. Thank god they the „Vivi tu“ with the subsequent Cabaletta wasn’t deleted. . Campos Leal used it as his master piece. His – unfortunately reduced – duet with Anna also was one of the highlights of the evening.

Schlossfespiele Werningrode – Rigoletto – DUCA DI MANTOVA
And in this particular Verdi Opera, a secure, dashing tenor is needed. Victor Campos Leal has exactly the right stature for the role of the Duke of Mantova.

Landestheater Niederbayern -Lucrezia Borgia - GENNNARO
‚Victor Campos Leal not only give a vocally beautiful Gennaro Dandy, he also draws a powerful portrayal with a true depth of character.‘
Opernwelt 6/2018 – Markus Thiel
The Mexican tenor Victor Campos Leal’s powerful performance was certainly no less exciting. The part of Gennaro gave him a perfect chance to profitably apply the qualities of his flexible voice. His brilliance in the high registers and his stylistically confident Messa di voce, as he convincingly proved in the aria „T’amo qual dama un angelo“, were equally captivating as his very emotional acting.
Opernglas 6/2018 – J.-M.Wienecke
Konzerthaus Wien – Messa da Requiem/G. Verdi
A tenoral surprise came from Victor Campos Leal of the Passau Theatre. A beautifully timbred, mellow, lyrical tenor voice with outstanding pianos. His „Hostias et preces tibi“ was beyond compare, just like his „ingemisco“.

… Edgardo, with expressive facets illustriously performed and dashingly played by Victore Campos Leal with his powerful belcanto tenor voice…
Michaela Schabelwww.klassik.com
On the other hand the tragic lover Edgardo, played with real passion and inspired warmth by Victor Campos Leal.
Landshuter Zeitung – Eberhard Iro
Mautern – Rogoletto –DUKE OF MANTUA
A few hours before the premiere of Rigoletto in Mautern in Liesingtal there was great excitement. One of the leading actors, the singer Tim Ribic, was suddenly fallen seriously ill. Spontaneously the Mexican tenor Victor Campos-Leal, who is currently rehearsing ‘The Flying Dutchman’ in Wroclaw, stepped in. He arrived, believing he would also sing the final rehearsal instead of right the premiere. Just to speak cleartly: Victor Campos Leal created at no time the impression to be just jumping in. Masterly he sang his part and contributed to the enormous success just like the wonderful Maria Kublashvili as Gilda, Adrian Häuselmann in the title role, Daniel Cobos as Sparafucile and Susanne Hebenstreit as convincing Maddalena.

Südostbayerische Städtetheater Passau/Landshut - La Straniera - ARTURO
VICTOR CAMPOS LEAL, another trump cardin this new production, prooved to be a highly respectacle tenor partner with a perfect sense of style , a clear vocal line and beautiful messe di voce, wchich is indispensable in this vocal style. The young Mexican, winner of the Francisco-Araiza-Conest, is a member of the Brselau Opera ensemble for the time being. With this elegant, technically perfect interpretation of Arturo he proves to be suitable for bigger tasks.

The Mexican Victor Campos Real excels through his lyrical tenor voice.

But also the Mexican tenor Victor Campos Leal cthrilled the Passau opera audience: his portrayal of Arturo is both vocally and actingly inspiring. At times he sings with a yearning love, then again consumed with devouring jaleousy.
Passauer Woche - Fritz Greiler
Very impressive the Mexican tenor Victor Campos Leal as Arturo

Breslau Opera House - Rigoletto - DUCA
Overwhelming at the evening of the premiere was Victor Campos as "Duca di Mantua" - the womanizer, who plays some really passionate scenes in the third act with Anna Bernacka as "Maddalena"

Breslau Opera House - The Pearl Fisaher - NADIR
'... above all the Mexican tenor Victor Campos Leal, who made his acclaimed debut as Nadir ...'
Klassikpress
Breslau Opera House - La Traviata - ALFREDO
In this Traviata Jijoung Jo's natural charm (Violetta) very convincingly melds with the touching Victor Camos Leal (Alfredo). Under the excellent direction of Bassem Akiki, both of them capture the audience.
