  • His Faust at Lyric Opera of Chicago was beautiful. Quite a revelation. If only the management there had the foresight to engage him for future operas. Alas, they did not.

  • Strong voice, for now two settings: loud and louder. Shouts where he should whisper.
    It may be unfair to judge a singer from one aria sung in concert. Hopefully ,with time he will connect with the text more. This is an aria sung by a young poet who knows that he will probably die. Seems good until you hear this and this
