MET Chamber Ensemble ~ Maestro James Levine - Poulenc's Le bal masque - Carnegie Hall, December 13, 2015
The staunch baritone soloist was John Moore,
an Ohioan [sic] like the boss and a talent oddly underused at Lincoln Center.
He enriched Max Jacob’s naughty texts with verbal bravura and vocal bravado,
not to mention infectious delight.
Martin Bernheimer - Financial Times
The ensemble’s vibrant performance, conducted by Mr. Levine,
featured a commanding turn by the muscular-voiced baritone John Moore.
Anthony Tommansini - The New York Times
The Magic Flute - Portland Opera - May 2016
As the bird-catcher Papageno, John Moore stole every scene he was in
with manic comic energy and a fine agile baritone just right for Mozart.
James McQuillen - For The Oregonian/OregonLive
The Passenger - Florida Grand Opera - April 2016
"The baritone John Moore sang the role of Tadeusz with a warm humanity, communicating the persistence of decency and courage."
David Fleshler -South Florida Classical Review (Miami Herald)
"The American baritone John Moore was a very fine Tadeusz, with a forceful tone that fit the declamatory nature of the vocal writing well."
Greg Stepanich - Palm Beach Arts Paper
Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Omaha Opera - October 2015
John Moore as the titular barber comfortably commands the stage...He rises to his scene-stealing moment with “Largo al factotum,” with a “Figaro! Figaro! Figaro! that is strong, sustained and soaring...It’s clear he is relishing his star turn, and it’s one he continues for the duration of the performance...the audience is indeed fortunate to hear Moore deliver this iconic song in his beautiful, booming baritone.
