"The remarkable baritone Sean Michael Plumb displayed an instrument notable for its evenness of tone and overwhelming beauty. He shaded his genuinely lyric sound with darker, more desperate colors as the narrator grew ever more disillusioned by the caprices of fate."

"From the very moment of his charismatic entrance, accompanied by the famous cavatina "Largo al factotum," and invoking the aura of a genuine rock star like Elvis Presley, the Figaro played by Plumb immediately captivated the audience with his energy and bravado, eliciting thunderous applause from the audience. Plumb demonstrated a masterful command of the quick phrasing, with full, tonal centers and high notes and smooth evenness throughout the vocal range."
