"Some of the evening's best work came from Christopher Magiera as the fundamentally decent American consul, Sharpless, whose warnings to Pinkerton of the tragedy to come are blithely ignored. Magiera's portrayal combined a smooth, intelligently used baritone with acting ability of a high order."- Sarah Bryan Miller Saint Louis Post Dispatch
"Baritone Christopher Magiera, making his OTSL debut in the title role, has an unsympathetic fellow to portray, but brought out Onegin’s complexities, sang beautifully and certainly looked the part as Tatiana’s concept of the maiden’s prayer answered." -Sarah Bryan Miller, St Louis Post-Dispatch
