In Review: Zaremba impresses at OTSL's Sparafucile in "Rigoletto"
"Christian Zaremba is gracefully menacing as Sparafucile, the hired assassin. On his exit at the end of one scene he holds an almost sub-sonic bass note practically forever." -Broadway World Read full review. "Christian Zaremba’s Sparafucile is appropriately evil, a murderer-for-hire concerned about his honor." -Saint Louis Today
"Among the supporting cast, Christian Zaremba, making his Opera Theatre main season debut, plays Sparafucile, the assassin, with reserve and respect – admirable considering how easy it would have been to overplay the part with squinty sliminess. Zaremba’s straightforward, transactional portrayal facilitates the opera rather than calls too much attention to the role." -STL Limelight
"Christian Zaremba’s rumbling bass underscores the creeping nastiness of the assassin Sparafucile" -Ladue news
