Sancho Panza

Opera Saratoga

"A standout was the jolly and explosive tenor Brian Yeakley as Quixote’s sidekick Sancho Panza. He loves his high notes and at the “Quixotic Opera” showcase of young artists on June 25, he sustained a stunning high F in an aria by Donizetti."
Times Union

"As his stalwart companion Sancho, tenor Brian Yeakley gave a playful but thoughtful characterization and sang with a focused, ringing tone."

The Daily Gazette

"Brian Yeakley, playing Cervantes’ servant/Sancho, was a favorite of the evening. His comedic timing was almost as excellent as his voice, and his performance of “I Really Like Him” garnered laughs and applause throughout. Both in Cervantes’ world and Quixote’s, Yeakley conveys the authenticity, loyalty, and wit of his character wonderfully."

Spotlight News

"Yeakley was the perfect comedic sidekick, as strong of voice as anyone in the cast. There was no guile in his Sancho Panza, a likable character who, with a knowing smile and a shrug of his shoulders, stood steadfastly by his master."

Fadinard

UBC Opera

"To the principal role of Fadinard, Brian Yeakley brought a most appealing tenor voice and good acting chops. His progression through the day from hell as it grew slowly madder was nicely controlled, and the final resolution endearing."

Review Vancouver

Ilo

West Edge Opera

Yeakley has a very bright high tenor...and he acquitted himself well on the concert stage.

Bachtrack

Brian Yeakley as her Trojan husband sounded like a young Chris Merritt in the virtuosic Rossini arias. Yeakley is ready to hit major opera stages soon.

Brighella

Glimmerglass Opera

"high tenor Brian Yeakley (Brighella) was especially delightful with his ornate descant flourish: “We keep on singing, we keep on dancing.”"

New York Arts

"The inventive attire and dance steps of the commedia dell’arte troupe (... Kansas tenor Brian Ross Yeakley as Brighella) deserve special commendation."
