REVIEWS

"Zach Borichevsky - tall, lean, good-looking - was a Rodolfo of one’s dreams, equipped with a flexible, bright voice that has already made him one of the most sought-after singers of his generation. His pianissimos should teach many a 'can belto' tenor a lesson." (Göran Forsling, Seen and Heard International, April 2014)

"Borichevsky was the star of the premiere - a grander and more romantic-looking Rodolfo would be hard to find. The tall young man has a clear natural tenor voice, which rises high with unforced buoyancy. His beautiful lyric sound is a sleek metallic splendour. He will soon rise to the top of the international opera world ." (Helsingin Sanomat, March 2014)

“Zach Borichevsky sings stirringly as Jonathan Dale, a young soldier who cannot stomach this strange truce." (Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun, February 2013, on Silent Night at Opera Philadelphia)

“Zach Borichevsky and Corinne Winters sang Roméo and Juliette most convincingly. Tall and slim with an exciting sound to his tenor voice, Borichevsky was perfect for his part… Both these singers can act, too, and that added measurably to this performance. Borichevsky sang a small part in Richard Strauss’ Arabella last summer in Santa Fe but even that few minutes onstage were enough to alert the audience to his significant talent.” (Opera Today, 2012)

“Tenor Zach Borichevsky, as the confused Matteo, showed an impressive tenor that is perfectly suited to the German repertoire.” (TheaterJones,  2012)

“Zach Borichevsky was equally robust vocally and cut a tall, dashing figure as the tortured Matteo.” (The Classical Review, 2012)
