Anthony Dean Griffey - Reviews

"Anthony Dean Griffey was a superb Obadiah, performing the great aria “If with all your hearts” with lyrical beauty and warmth." - Mendelssohn's "Elijah" at Cincinnati May Festival, CINCINNATI, May 29, 2016

The four esteemed soloists made for a well-matched quartet. More precisely, Moore’s liquid soprano with Cano’s mahogany-hued mezzo voice, and Griffey’s bright, empyrean tenor with Stark’s reedy stentorian bass. Three of them — Moore, Griffey and Stark — are all returning artists to the Symphony Hall stage with recent ASO performances to their credit. - Verdi's 'Requiem' with the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, ARTSATL, November 14, 2015

“Griffey made a terrific Mitch, charismatically earnest and boyish and forcefully sculpting his phrases with clear enunciation of the words.” - A Streetcar named Desire with LA Opera, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, May 23, 2014

“His character’s gaucheries provided a bit of necessary levity for this dramatic piece and his resonant tenor sound rang out with burnished colors.” - A Streetcar Named Desire with LA Opera, OPERA TODAY, May 22, 2014

“L.A. Opera has found a believable cast with . . . Anthony Dean Griffey’s affectingly vulnerable Mitch . . .”

“Griffey, meanwhile, makes a superb Mitch, cementing his stature of one of the finest singing character actors in American opera (Peter Grimes, Of Mice and Men).” - A Streetcar named Desire with LA Opera, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, May 19, 2014

“Anthony Dean Griffey, reprising his role as Mitch from the 1998 world premiere, is obviously at one with the character of the repressed mama’s boy . . . Beautifully sung and acted, Griffey’s Mitch was an endearing portrait of a good-hearted, but very lonely, man.” - A Streetcar Named Desire with LA Opera, OPERA WARHORSES, May 18, 2014
