"Un Ballo In Maschera" at the Academy of Vocal Arts

"During his time studying at AVA, fourth-year baritone Zachary Nelson has delivered more than a few stellar performances, most recently in Don Quichotte. He has admirable range as a performer and was just as effective as the spurned Renato, whose disfiguring need for revenge transforms him into an assassin, as he was playing the comically quirky Sancho two months prior. His third act aria “Eri tu che macchiavi quell’anima”, when he decries the treachery of his own wife and a man he considered his best friend, was simply masterful. Bravo, Signore Nelson."-Gale Martin, Bach Tracker
