Reviews

Proving Up - Opera Omaha

"The Sod­buster, sung with riv­et­ing au­thor­ity by An­drew Har­ris, oc­ca­sionally segues from his low­est bass reg­is­ter into falsetto and back again; his ap­pear­ance is ac­com­pa­nied by creepy har­mon­ica lines, played by the dead daugh­ters as well as in­stru­mental­ists." 

— Heidi Waleson, The Wall Street Journal

L'Orfeo -- Bayerische Staatsopera

" Amongst the other singers, foremost mention goes to Andrew Harris as the Lord of the Underworld. With his metallic, droning bass and his awkward gestures, he gave us a terrifying, abhorrent Pluto." 

— Benedikt Zacher, backtrackr
