“Fearlessly focused, Ms. RINGLE sounded mellow and melancholy, her mezzo taking on an otherworldly luminousness in “Au cimetière” and a poignant richness in “L’île inconnue.” It was a show deserving of its big crowd.” -New York Times
“Clay Hilley is a wonderful tenor who plays the role of Siegfried, the warrior who gives the ring to Brünnhilde, which seals their fates together. Hilley looks the role of the powerful fighter, and sings gorgeously.” -St. Louis Magazine

"Utah Opera resident artist Tyson Miller, continuing the scene-stealing tendencies of other resident artists, gave a broad comedic performance as Sellem, the auctioneer. Miller’s lyric tenor ping-ponged effortlessly through the part’s challenging range."
