William Ferguson press reviews

Recital: Gods and Monsters
'William Ferguson is sure to lead a long and happy life int eh musical world. A Juilliard-trained tenor and rising star, Ferguson mesmerized
 A crowd of more than 500 listeners and piloted them on a two-century glide through a blissful two-hour program that had a little bit of everything
The Richmond Times-Dispatch
Recital: American in Paris
'Ferguson sang with a fresh, relatively light voice and a gratifying evenness of tone from top to bottom of his range. He projected a warmly conversational tone in the art songs, especially those in French. (He caressed the vowel sounds so ardently you expected to hear them purring. The range Ferguson displayed in the concert, from high art to campy pop, from the seductive to the comic, seems to come naturally to him. At times he looked and sounded like Donald O’Connor, circa 1950'

Not The Messiah 2008

'...and there were fine turns by the four soloists, particularly the young tenor William Ferguson in the role of Brian.'
Washingtonn Post July 25, 2008

The Tempest (Caliban) - Santa Fe Opera:

'William Ferguson's Caliban was a wonder. His light tenor could bite as well as seductively purr, and he acted the part of the tortured creature with abandon. His almost nonexistent costume consisted of a loincloth, apparent tattoos and plenty of dirt, but Ferguson wore them like the island's monarch he claimed to be.'
The New Mexican

'A tour de force by any definition, tenor William Ferguson is unforgettable as the scheming, wormlike island denizen Caliban. An incredibly physical actor who fully inhabits this exotic character, Ferguson adroitly handles both the pinched high notes and poignant tenderness the role requires with his pliable, expressive voice.'
The Denver Post

'I'd see The Tempest again in a minute, especially with William Ferguson as the alternately pathetic and abrasive Caliban.'
The Philadelphia Inquirer

'Tenor William Ferguson gave a gorgeous performance as Caliban.'
The San Francisco Chronicle

'William Ferguson — butt naked, as they say in America — was the superb Caliban.'
The Sunday Times
