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

Anthony received incredible praise for the reprisal of his role as Mitch in Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire at L.A. Opera:

“His character’s gaucheries provided a bit of necessary levity for this dramatic piece and his resonant tenor sound rang out with burnished colors.”
Maria Nockin – Opera Today

“L.A. Opera has found a believable cast with . . . Anthony Dean Griffey’s affectingly vulnerable Mitch . . .”
Mark Swed – Los Angeles Times

“Anthony Dean Griffey, reprising his role as Mitch from the 1998 world premiere, is obviously at one with the character of the repressed mama’s boy . . . Beautifully sung and acted, Griffey’s Mitch was an endearing portrait of a good-hearted, but very lonely, man.”
Opera Warhorses

“Griffey, meanwhile, makes a superb Mitch, cementing his stature of one of the finest singing character actors in American opera (Peter GrimesOf Mice and Men).”
Myron Meisel – The Hollywood Reporter

“Griffey made a terrific Mitch, charismatically earnest and boyish and forcefully sculpting his phrases with clear enunciation of the words.”
Timothy Mangan – Orange County Register
