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


Lyric Opera of Chicago

“Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey scored a triumphant Lyric debut as Susannah’s avenging brother, Sam Polk, singing the part exceedingly well while playing down the character’s overtly cornpone aspects.”

John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, October 3, 2002

“Notably Sam Polk, Susannah’s loving but ne’er-do-well drunken older brother, [was] sung by American tenor Anthony Dean Griffey. Making his Lyric debut, Griffey brought a warmly enveloping voice and unforced tenderness to the role.”

Wynne Delacoma, Chicago Sun-Times, October 3, 2002

“As Sam, Anthony Dean Griffey proved another outstanding rising star, with ample vocal power and solid acting skills.”

William Shackelford, Opera, April 2003
