Reviews

“John Relyea, as Fiesco, drew a character of theatrical effectiveness. His timbre was very well suited in the dramatic second act, with the necessary warmth in tone and expressiveness.”
Bachtrack – Lorenzo Fiorito

“Relyea revealed a voice that’s grown in depth and darkness in recent years and is ideal for the role.”
Opera Critic – Steve Cohen

 

“John Relyea has one of those voices that seem to come from a couple of hundred metres underground. Speaking the Prologue to Bartók’s Bluebeard ́s Castle, Relyea had us gasping, so volcanic did it sound.”
