Sharpless, Madama Butterfly (Opera San Jose, 2014)

As Sharpless, the American consul, baritone Evan Brummel sang with warm robust tone, and his acting fully conveyed the compassion that marks the consul. - Richard Scheinin, Mercury News

Germont, La Traviata (Opera San Jose, 2012)

Evan Brummel, as Alfredo’s stern father, conveyed an impressive gravitas as the strictly moralistic provincial who softens and becomes a compassionate remorseful figure by the finale. - Susan Steinberg, Livermore Independent

Tonio, Pagliacci (Opera San Jose, 2011)

Brummel delivers a solid, meaty tone and a natural stage presence, drawing his Tonio with inspired levels of creepiness. - Michael J. Vaughn, Operaville

Tonio, Pagliacci (Opera San Jose, 2011)

The famous Prologue was vigorously sung by Evan Brummel, a sirloin-voiced baritone, as Tonio, the hunchback clown. - Richard Scheinin, Mercury News

Monterone, Rigoletto (Virginia Opera, 2010)

In the small but key role of Monterone, Evan Brummel was dramatically effective as the wronged paterfamilias. His booming baritone instantly brought a palpable chill upon the Duke’s libidinous court. - Terry Ponick, The Washington Times

Father, Hansel & Gretel (Sarasota Opera, 2010)

Hearty and big-voiced, Evan Brummel was a terrific Peter, completely inhabiting the role of the children’s loving but irresponsible father.– Lawrence A. Johnson, South Florida Classical Review
