Barber of Seville
Boston Midsummer Opera
"When Figaro (Robert Balonek) burst into the arena with effortless energy and bravado, he shook hands with audience members in the first row and roamed through the aisles greeting people...the star was Robert Balonek. He should be singing Figaro or Lepporello at the Met."
"As the eponymous barber, Robert Balonek relied heavily on boyish charm, bouncing about in an exuberant manner. His baritone energetically delivered the famous aria, “Largo al factotum.”"
