"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.”

Opera News

"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"

- Washington Post

 

"The singer showed the poise and communicative power of a seasoned artist, singing with commanding, stentorian tone"
