Eric Barry press reviews

“…Eric Barry left an impressive mark in the title role with a bright, clear timbre, evenness of projection and exceptional sensitivity to subtleties of text and melodic contour. The tenor proved to be a persuasive actor as well, conveying Tom's moral and mental descent with considerable skill and, in the final scene, producing sweet, subtle singing that proved quite affecting." —Opera News (The Rake’s Progress, Wolf Trap Opera)

“The summer’s best vocal talent was saved for this welcome production of “The Rake’s Progress,” on Friday night at the Barns. ¬Texas-born tenor Eric Barry excelled in the demanding role of Tom Rakewell, in one of the most promising performances by a Wolf Trap young artist in recent memory. Lustrous, puissant high notes never faltered or strained, with clean accuracy of intonation and rhythm, spinning out the baroquified curlicues of Stravinsky’s vocal writing.” —Washington Post (The Rake’s Progress, Wolf Trap Opera)
