JOHN HOLLAND

F E A T U R E D   R E V I E W S

John Holland (Leporello) was a fine actor and an excellent foil for Christopher Dunham’s lascivious Don. Holland was at his strongest when singing in ensemble numbers, and was particularly effective in the final death scene’s trio.

Opera Canada - 2019 Don Giovanni Southern Ontario Lyric opera

"It was obvious from John Holland’s performance that he had performed this role before.  I was amazed at his bass-baritone voice and of his acting skills. His recitation of the Don’s iniquitous adventures was for me one of the highlights of the evening."

Ernest Redekop -  2018 Don Giovanni Tour (London)

 

"John Holland portrayed Figaro with gusto.  His “Se Vuo Ballare” was sung with an ardent tone while his “Non più andrai” was dance-like in his phrasing. Holland was very dedicated to his text, making the most of major words and even imposing a buffo style at other moments. Holland sang his final aria with gravitas."

“John Holland gave a powerful and often quite funny account of the scheming Burgrave.”
