“Richard Pittsinger made an excellent Aminta who had such stunning vocal moments that we found ourself holding our breath.” 

Voce di Meche / Meche Kroop

“As Aminta, Richard Pittsinger skated nimbly over his runs and demonstrated an impressive high extension.”

Aminta  |  Handel's ATALANTA

Juilliard Opera

Dr. Caius |  Verdi's FALSTAFF

Aspen Music Festival

“Tenor Richard Pittsinger made a suitably prissy Dr. Caius.” 

The Aspen Times / Harvey Steiman

“With stage presence to burn, tenor Richard Pittsinger displayed a mastery of Baroque style in ‘Tis Nature’s Voice’ from Henry Purcell’s Hail, Bright Cecilia; and equal ease in Benjamin Britten’s evocative ‘At Day-Close in November’ from the cycle Winter Words, to poems by Thomas Hardy.” / Rick Perdian

“Pittsinger had strength, particularly in the upper register, hinting that within his lighter, lyrical voice, there’s some spinto ability that can be called upon when needed.” / Chris Ruel

Orfeo  |  Rossi's ORFEO

Juilliard Opera

“Their essential love, despite threats from outside and their own doubts and insecurities, come through beautifully thanks to the winning singing and youthful bearing of the tenor Richard Pittsinger as Orfeo and the soprano Julie Roset as Euridice.” 

NY Times / Anthony Tommasini

Cephale  |  Jacquet de La Guerre’s CEPHALE ET PROCRIS

Boston Early Music Festival

“The three male leads … displayed the ideal for each voice and acting type. Richard Pittsinger… led the opera from the demanding role of Cephale. The versatile tenor sang well in both solo and ensemble, matching his tone to the context. I most enjoyed his graceful trills and clear pronunciation of funky French consonants.”
