Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey produced large and gleaming tone and displayed subtle musical and verbal intelligence. He is an altogether exceptional artist.” – Boston Globe

Pittsburgh Symphony

“Anthony Dean Griffey has all but defined Mitch for future productions. He has mastered the combination of strength and insecurity bound up in the virtuous character.”

Andrew Druckenbrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 15, 2001

“If you attend only one Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra concert this season, this weekend’s show should have been it.” “The only holdout from the original cast, tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, was superbly judged, providing a marginally better Mitch than actor Karl Malden did on stage and screen. His every action screamed naïve mama’s boy, yet he could be inescapably tender, as in ‘You Know When It’s the Right Thing’.”

Steven Singer, Daily News (McKeesport, PA), January 15, 2001

“Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, who created the role of Mitch, Stanley’s friend, in the opera’s premiere in 1998 in San Francisco, gave a sensitive, believable portrayal of the insecure bachelor.”
