"Bass-baritone Richard Ollarsaba is fantastic as Figaro...Ollarsaba, who was a swaggering Escamillo in "Carmen" two years ago, has no patience with Almaviva and makes that robustly clear through every scene, especially in his spitting-nails cavatina, "Se vuol ballare," and the wedding scene."
"Richard Ollarsaba as the decadent [Don Giovanni] conveyed moments of dark humour with dark timbres rich in narrative nuance."
- South China Morning Post
"Richard Ollarsaba, evoking a young Ruggero Raimondi in looks and manner, with a meltingly smooth bass-baritone"

- Chicago Classical Review
