"Captivates the audience with his dramatic interpretations and striking upper register, which boomed to the back of the house"
"Blake Denson stands out among the winners"
"The most promising of the Quintet"
"Led by a very affable yet intimidating and lustful Blake Denson"
"Blake Denson's vocally hefty Donner"
"Blake Denson was also very strong as Morales. A roaring baritone, almost with a little bass coloring in his voice. One is reminded of Falk Stuckmann. He is an officer, able to to wield power and chat with Micaela at the same time. That was a successful house debut, hopefully he has a great career ahead of him"
" Blake Denson, who in just the few words he spoke gave an indication of the commanding resonance and size of his voice. He gave an impressive account of Rodrigue's final aria, "Carlos scouts", from Verdi's Don Carlos."
-The Front Row Center
"So to the singers. Who Should I begin with?...credit where credit is due, Blake Denson's Donner was Magnificent. He took a character who really has only one big moment (at the very end) and gave him depth and power. Power, certainly in vocal terms, but Denson has real stage presence too."
-Sean and Heard International
"Denson expressed with such passions and more with his dramatic mastery and richly intoned magnificent baritone voice"
-The Front Row Center
"Blake Denson's Jake made the most of "A Woman is a Sometime Thing" thanks to his responsive, cultured baritone voice and its commanding upper register. It is an uncommonly rich instrument that was also shone in "It Takes a Long Pull to Get There""
"Blake Denson defying the daffiness of Donner"s costume to deliver a blistering summons to the clouds"
"Blake Denson (Donner) excelled in his role."
"Blake Denson aggressive Donner (Brilliant casting-his hugely powerful bass boomed across the stage exactly as you'd expect from the god of Thunder)"
"Donner a full force unyielding Blake Denson"
-Opera Spy Review
"Blake Denson did full justice to Donner's lovely mini-aria towards the end of the opera."
Blake Denson was a beefy and gruff Angelotti
-Santa Fe New Mexico
