REVIEW

Jan 18, 2020

GLORY DENIED AT URBAN ARIAS

"John Riesen’s substantial tenor remains strong through all the scenes in which he appears as Younger Thompson: from being kicked on the ground by his jailer to seeing the jungle for the first time at the end of the war with wonder and joy. . . "

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"
