Reviews and Interviews
"Eric Lindsey—detailed and human as the Sacristan without undue fussiness—unfurled a fat, resonant bass evoking Ezio Flagello."
OPERA NEWS, Nov. 2016-- Vol. 81, No. 5
"That the verbal lovemaking [between Cavaradossi and Tosca] is taking place in a church is tickling, except to the fussy and disapproving sacristan, played well and comically by Eric Lindsey, hoping that the Madonna 'is forgiving.' His character could have been one of the nuns at my high school dances."

"I'd be remiss not to mention Eric Lindsey, as Figaro, whose richly developed and rounded bass-baritone fully embraced the fine balance of superb singing and involved comic awareness. His every moment on stage was savored and enjoyed for its fullness and appropriateness. Lindsey has the musical and movement makings of the likes of a Samuel Ramey or Bryn Terfel and is a singer to watch."

"Eric Lindsey was stellar as Calchas ... with his stentorian bass-baritone and wicked humor."
THE BARRE MONTPELIER TIMES ARGUS August 3, 2017
"Eric Lindsey, as Grenvil, whose all-too-brief moments offered a luxurious bass-baritone of such quality you wanted to hear lots more"

OPERAWIRE INTERVIEW: PRINCESS MALEINE
"Eric Lindsey as King Hjalmar. The thunderous power of his voice amplified his regality, but he was also able to tone it down enough to display the king’s frailty and ultimate regret at what his folly had wrought."

"Bass-baritone Eric Lindsey...has a dynamite, wow voice that commands attention in quality and delivery...a real find and a keeper."
