Opera News praises tenor Jason Ferrante for “singing up a stylish storm” and for getting “the gold star for trills” and the Berkshire Eagle says he “seems to brighten every stage he mounts.” Ferrante created the role of Little Victor Farrell in the world premiere of Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell’s Elizabeth Cree with Opera Philadelphia to open their O17 Festival and he repeated Little Victor for his debut with Chicago Opera Theater. His 2018-2019 season included Beppe in Pagliacci with Opera Omaha, Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Key Chorale, and Remendado in Carmen with the Bar Harbor Music Festival. .
On the international stage, Ferrante made his European debut at Teatro Comunale di Bologna as Beadle Bamford in Sweeney Todd. The production also appeared at Teatro Pavarotti in Modena, Teatro Rossini in Lugo, and Teatro Municipale in Piacenza. He was the Tenor Ghost in Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles with the Wexford Festival, and sang Pong in Turandot under the baton of Lorin Maazel in the grand opening of the Zaha Hadid-designed opera house in Guangzhou, China.
"Baritone Levi Hernandez also was ideal as the clueless Kildare, the Scotland Yard inspector desperate to catch the serial killer so as to win himself a promotion and be hailed as a hero in London’s gutter press." Chicago Tribune
"Three brilliant performances anchored the opera. . . As the cheerfully demented Kildare—his every appearance marked by an insistent ostinato figure straight from Jenůfa—gifted baritone Daniel Belcher uttered every syllable with relish and point."
