“Sanders performed his transformative role with stage-savvy sparkle and athleticism…Sanders had no competition for stardom.”

- Angela Allen, Oregon Arts Watch

“There was excellent work from Christian Sanders as the frightened novice.”

- Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News

“Christian Sanders as Albert Herring was a real showstopper. His incredible tenor was matched by his acting--even in the midst of a high comedy such as this, his ability to portray the frustration and smothered angst that seems to define Herring's life was crucial.  His voice was up to this difficult task, expressive and seemingly effortless, and with impeccable diction to boot. Sanders took his time enunciating, acting--doing all the small things necessary to make comedy work… (He) worked tirelessly to make sure all the subtleties were there.”

- Lorin Wilkerson, Northwest Reverb

“Christian Sanders’ clear, shining tenor served the role of the Novice well”

- James Sohre, Opera Today

“… a voice whose color belies his age. Someone to watch!”

- Bill Eadie, SanDiego.com
