Press and reviews


La Cenerentola,   Madison Opera - April, 2012

"Alan Dunbar scored an effective company debut with his warmly vibrant Alidoro."

    - Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News


"Garnett Bruce updates Gioachino Rossini's 1817 fairy tale opera to a 20th century movie lot, [where] the prince becomes a director, his tutor Alidoro (the excellent Alan Dunbar) a producer."

    - Lindsay Christians, Wisconsin State Journal


"...baritone Alan Dunbar manages the role of Ramiro's mentor, Alidoro, quite nicely.

    - John Barker, Isthmus - The Daily Page


"Alan Dunbar, who took the role of Alidoro, Daniel Belcher, who sang Dandini, and Gregory Schmidt, who was Ramiro, all contributed to the evening's success."

    - William Wineke, Channel 3000


Sweeney Todd,  Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Scenes - August, 2011

"Another delightful surprise was a scene in the second half of the program from Sondheim's, Sweeney Todd with Alissa Anderson and Alan Dunbar belting their way through one of that dark work's most brilliant duets."

    - Jonathan Pell, The Dallas Opera Blog


Liederabend Recital,  American Pianist Association, Indianapolis, IN - April, 2009

"Dunbar's well-focused tone was linked to fine German diction and unfailing, electrifying engagement with the texts."

    - Jay Harvey, Indianapolis Star


Too Many Sopranos,  Indiana University Opera Theater - February, 2007

"St. Peter, played by baritone Alan Dunbar, [and] Gabriel, performed by Jacob Sentgeorge...made a wonderful comic duo, a sort of heavenly Penn and Teller. Dunbar's voice is as full and sonorous as ever,"

    - Eric Anderson, IDS News


Don Giovanni,  Indiana University Opera Theater - September, 2005

"But it was his servant, Leporello, played by graduate student Alan Dunbar, who stole the show. ...Dunbar's advances were smooth and believable."
