"Figaro sung by Richard Ollarsaba performed with a rich controlled voice, his every gesture finely tuned"
- New Zealand Arts Review
“As the Count, bass-baritone Richard Ollarsaba didn’t just have the tall-dark-and-handsome bit going for him, but also robust, flavorful, agile vocalism…he delivered his Act III aria with particular panache. Ollarsaba’s portrayal of the amoral aristocrat deftly conveyed a sense of entitlement as well as a telling bit of insecurity, making his gorgeously sculpted “Contessa, perdono” all the more affecting.”
