Masetto and Il Commendatore, Don Giovanni
Skylark Opera Theatre
"Bass Benjamin Sieverding...worked an impressive double shift as the peasant bridegroom Masetto and the murdered Commendatore who makes a devastating reappearance as Giovanni's nemesis."
"But a voice at the opposite end of the register also made a strong impression: Benjamin Sieverding has a booming bass that made the jealous bridegroom Masetto almost as compelling as the statue come to life who brings things to a close with a creepy condemnation by flashlight."
"...doubling as the powerless peasant Masetto and the Commendatore, who returns as an implacable statue to seal Giovanni’s doom, Benjamin Sieverding is spectacular, gliding across the floor like stone on wheels, and his big, rich bass voice brings chills. "
Colline, La bohème
"...sang well, as did Benjamin Sieverding during a memorable farewell to a coat. "
"...his song to his coat, which comes very late in the opera, is a lovely surprise and made us wish we could hear more of Sieverding’s resonant baritone."
Filandro, Il tirinto
"As the intractable paterfamilias Filandro, Benjamin Sieverding dominated the evening vocally, his resonant, expressive bass a constant source of satisfaction. "
"...a special shout out to Benjamin Sieverding for his wickedly charming performance as the Sacristan at the top of the show."
Sarastro, Die Zauberflöte
"...a power and directness matched in this production only by Benjamin Sieverding as Sarastro"
"Benjamin Sieverding brings his deeply expressive bass to the role of Sarastro"
"...bass Benjamin Sieverding made a definite impression when he arrived in the first act. This was reinforced with his excellent second act aria, 'O Isis und Osiris'."
Duluth News Tribune
Truffaldino, Ariadne auf Naxos
"Zerbinetta's four partners in commedia dell'arte -- Andrew Lovato, who as Harlequin
is her main squeeze, Brad Benoit, Benjamin Sieverding and David Walton -- are a riot"
Detective Kearley, Oscar
"Joseph Gaines and Benjamin Sieverding were genuinely pesky and genuinely threatening as Queensberry’s agents sent to keep Wilde from enjoying London prior to his sentencing."
"Wayne Tigges, Benjamin Sieverding, and Ricardo Rivera were exceptional in their dual roles."
Philly Gay Calendar
"Benjamin Sieverding has a surprising depth as José's captain Zuniga"
Boulder Daily Camera
Second Infirmary Patient, Oscar (premiere)
Santa Fe Opera
"...in the best scene in the opera, David Blalock and Benjamin Sieverding as patients in the prison infirmary, whose singing, with Daniels, of a musical-hall song happily recalled Kurt Weill."
"One of the most effective scenes in the opera is an encounter in the second act that takes place in the prison infirmary. [...] Tenor David Blalock and bass Benjamin Sieverding are both marvelous in this touching scene."
"Infirmary patients David Blalock and Benjamin Sieverding lent heart-choking realism to their poignantly sung cameos."
