KARLSRUHE

"The tremendous flexibility of his belcanto singing gave Dean Murphy his beautiful baritone and the visual presence of the faithful Mercutio."

"...and particularly Dean Murphy, who closed the show, delivered his number with an emotional honesty and directness that showed why opera has persisted for so long as an art form."

FIGARO

IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA

ZÜRICH

"As Figaro, DEAN MURPHY convinced us totally with his beautiful baritone voice from the beginning. He succeeds in developing this role into a completely independent person. He sings this part with devotion and plays this character stunningly."

------

"DEAN MURPHY als Figaro überzeugt mit seiner schönen Baritonstimme von Anfang an total. Es gelingt ihm, aus dieser Rolle eine ganz eigenständige Person zu entwickeln. Er singt diese Partie mit Hingabe und spielt diese Figur umwerfend."

-Marco Stücklin

"Notable among these new voices on this occasion was the fine vocal projection of American baritone Dean Murphy."

OPERA NEWS

FIGARO

IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA

OPERNHAUS ZÜRICH

"Of the leads, two voices stole the show. Dean Murphy’s superb baritone gave real heft to the slick and natty Figaro, whose self-infatuation, given his clever schemes, could somehow be forgiven. The American’s articulation and carriage as a modish sunny boy saw the audience in his hand from the start, and his character’s preening and trendy blue hair made us love him even more. His vocal delivery of the popular “Largo al factotum” aria in which he lauds his own praises, couldn’t have been more convincing: “Everyone wants me,” he sings, “women, youngsters, oldies, the golden-haired…” Figaro’s is a tremendously vibrant presence, the real driver of the action and Murphy brought the house lights on."
