REVIEWS

Florestan: Fidelio / Michigan Opera Theatre

“…Jason Wickson, whose commanding voice had heroic sweep to it…”

Opera Canada

 

Don José: Carmen / Piedmont Opera

“The demanding role of Don José was sung by tenor Jason Wickson whose lovely big voice covered all the demands of the part, being easily heard at all times.”

CVNC (Classical Voice of North Carolina)

 

Paul: Die tote Stadt / Oper Wuppertal

“The American tenor Jason Wickson gives a bravura performance of his huge role, with no trace of a foreign accent.”

Deianira

 

“Jason Wickson masters the role of Paul with a powerful tenor, which has a radiant upper register.”

OMM

 

“The American Jason Wickson, whose repertoire already includes Florestan, Don José and Calaf, is also making his German debut in the role of Paul in Wuppertal. He movingly portrays the mourning, self-absorbed grief-stricken man, and is vocally and musically confident as he masters the demanding staging.”

Canio: Pagliacci / Festival Lyrique international de Belle-Île en Mer

“Making a brilliant French debut, we discover Jason Wickson, a remarkable young American tenor, obviously destined for the great roles of Verdi and Wagner. His stunning “Ah ridi Pagliaccio” was unforgettable.”

Forum Opéra

 

Dick Johnson: La Fanciulla del West

"Jason Wickson as Johnson is as gentlemanly as a bandit can be. And he definitely lets his guard down for Minnie. When he looks death in the face at the end of the opera, he valiantly accepts it without begging for mercy or cowering in any way. His powerful, pure tenor voice becomes grave and heroic as he prepares for what looks like the end of his life and love. It's quite a change from the sweet, romantic tone in his scenes with Minnie."

Narraboth: Salome / Opera Hong Kong

“The vocal line-up was impressive. The whole cast sang Strauss’ formidable score with powerful resonance, and Jason Wickson fired up the opening with command as Narraboth…”

South China Morning Post

 

Macduff: Macbeth / Opera in the Heights, Houston

“Jason Wickson, as Macduff, understood his role as a benevolent character who’s responsible for the kingdom’s absolution. This young tenor’s delivery cut through thick and loud scoring such that a ray of impassioned sunshine foretold the corrupt couple’s karma…”

Houston Culture Map

 

Erik: Der fliegende Holländer / Opera Carolina

"A revelation among the cast was the Erik of Jason Wickson. Possessing a tenor of unusual power and clarity, he was able to fashion Senta's would-be lover into a figure of both strength and pathos — an admirable accomplishment."

Opera News

 

Erik: Der fliegende Holländer / Princeton Festival

“Best was another tenor, Jason Wickson, as a passionate, bronze-toned Erik. With his hapless love for Senta, Erik seems ridiculous in many productions, but Mr Wickson gave him affecting seriousness."

New York Times

 

"Most impressive vocally was Senta’s suitor Erik, sung by Jason Wickson, with a full, honey-toned tenor that soared over the orchestra."
