Performed at the Ravinia Music Festival

August 9, 2021

"Edgardo, sung by tenor Benjamin Werley...had all the warmth and conviction needed for the tragic hero. His “Verranno a te sull’aure” rendezvous love duet with Sandoval was expressive and passionate. He showed glimpses of heavier, heroic shades and legato phrasing in his Act III marathon, ending with “Tu che a Dio spiegasti l’ali,” sung after Raimondo tells him Lucia is dead."
-COURTNEY SMITH, NJArts.net

"... the blind, all-consuming ardor of tenor Benjamin Werley’s Don José was never in doubt. Werley wielded a gleaming, flexible tenor and had the confidence to let his performance build and deepen. The contrast between his fresh-faced, clean-cut stoicism in Act I and his vulnerable, ragged desperation in the harrowing conclusion was extreme."
-OPERA NEWS

"As Narraboth, the captain of Herod’s guard, Benjamin Werley displayed a strong stage presence and a powerful tenor with thrilling high notes."
-South Florida Classical Review
