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

Washington National Opera

“Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, the sole carryover from the premiere, sang with empathy, intensity and immaculate diction as Mitch.”

Tim Page, The Washington Post, May 17, 2004

“Beautifully nuanced singing and incisive acting made Peggy Kriha Dye (Stella) and Anthony Dean Griffey (Mitch) remarkably sympathetic.”

Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun, May 17, 2004

“As Mitch, tenor Anthony Dean Griffey — who sang this role in the original San Francisco Opera production — was affecting, particularly in his lyric essay in Act II.”

T. L. Ponick, The Washington Times, May 17, 2004

“[Peggy Kriha] Dye’s Stella and Anthony Dean Griffey’s portrayal of Mitch, Stanley’s buddy and Blanche’s yearning suitor, are well-crafted, thoroughly convincing characters, both musically and dramatically.”

Clarke Bustard, Richmond Times-Dispatch, May 17, 2004
