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."
- Alyson Brodsy, IDS News
