RAPHAËL LADEN-GUINDON

“Baritone Raphaël Laden-Guindon avoided the trap of making Harapha a mere blustering villain. Thus, he displayed swagger but also a personal magnetism at times, enriching the drama. This character gets the show-stopping aria of Act I, and Laden-Guindon delivered the goods with numerous brilliant melismas and vocal fireworks."

Geoffrey Wieting, The Boston Musical Intelligencer
