Reviews

What Christian Sebek had in abundance from the start was squillo, that emotive peal that makes a good Italianate tenor’s sound cut straight to the heart. 

— Steve Smith, New York Times

La Bohème

Only Christian Sebek, as Luigi, has a voice, and a dramatic persona, big enough to overcome the curse of the sound system, as he fills the river valley with his warm, virile tenor.

II Tabarro: Luigi

The Saint of Bleecker Street 

Christian Sebek’s firm, ringing tenor voice proved ideal for conveying Michele’s sentiments, disagreeable though they for the most part are. And his suavely delivered wedding toast in Italian supplied a welcome, if brief, change of mood.

The Saint of Bleecker Street

Christian Šebek’s lovely supple tenor was a delight. As Annina’s over-protective brother, Šebek ably demonstrated his singing and acting skills, the latter especially in the nasty fight scene in Act One. When he ‘accidently’ stabs his girlfriend to death in Act Two, this wonderful performer so skillfully manifested all the varied and contradictory personality traits of his character.

Ubaldo: Terrific! 

I think you are just marvelous

Hal Prince

Phantom of the Opera

Šebek, a one-time baritone, had all his high notes – and he wasn’t afraid to let them ring out. His singing was full of visceral excitement.

-- Charles Ward, Houston Chronicle

La Boheme: Rodolfo
