OPERA

"It’s difficult to comment on every soloist – there were many, but two were particularly outstanding... Arnold Livingston Geis sang from behind the orchestra, but had sufficient gravitas to overcome with his beautiful tenor."

-LA Opus

"Arnold Livingston Geis offered strong singing, often from spots high and low, including a catwalk that surrounds the room." -New York Classical Review

“Pride of place for radiant singing has to go to the assured, ringing Tamino (Link) from Arnold Livingston Geis. His polished performance was quite simply as good as it gets. Mr. Geis has a sizable lyric instrument that lavishes honeyed tone on all registers and at all volumes. His secure technique and stylish phrasing enrich the production immensely, and moreover, Arnold is handsome, winsome, and every other sort of “some.” And wittily funny to boot. It will be a pleasure to watch his star rise as it surely will.” -Opera Today

“Even in a show as persistently humorous as this there were moments of genuine musical poignancy. Arnold Livingston Geis, as Tamino (here Link from “The Legend of Zelda”), projected a beautifully clear and heroic tone in his aria, “This image of a princess fair, with long and flowing golden hair” the equivalent to Mozart’s “Dies Bildnis” -Opera Wire

"As a Scottish soldier Jonathan Dale mourning his fallen brother, tenor Arnold Livingston Geis did manage an affecting tone; his letters home which he wrote... were some of the only truly moving moments of the opera." -Schmopera.com

"Tenor Arnold Livingston Geis was excellent in his moving portrayal of Sprink." -Classical Voice America

"A few other performances stood out from the large cast, including current Domingo-Cafritz member Arnold Livingston Geis, whose ardent tenor continued to impress as the earnest young Scotsman Jonathan Dale."-Washington Classical Review

"Tenor Arnold Livingston Geis is warm-voiced as the German opera singer Nikolaus Sprink, and handles his angst and spiritual evolution in a well-modulated performance."
