SWEENEY TODD AT MICHIGAN OPERA THEATRE

"Other characters are utterly remarkable here, such as John Riesen’s Pirelli, at turns bright and funny and downright sinister, with a stunning tenor"

REVIEW

CENDRILLION AT OPERA COMPANY OF MIDDLEBURY

"As the pensive Prince Charming, John Riesen scored his finest impressions in his sensitive soft singing... In their Big Duet Ohse and Riesen gave the grateful audience the Big Operatic Gift of thrilling all­outclimaxes. It was the stuff of fairy tales."
