Rodolfo – La bohème / Opera in the Heights 2016

“But best of all, we get an evocative, vim-filled cast who would be welcomed on any world stage. They bring this sympathetic potpourri of dreamers, schemers, flirts, and woe-be-gone jealous lovers to amazing life. They really do seem to be these characters, not over-stuffed divas and divos who have left their youth many operas ago.

[I]t’s no surprise that horny young writer Rodolfo, tenor Dane Suarez, would instantly fall for this comely waif[, Mimì,] who crafts flowers out of paper. Can you smell the patchouli? Suarez has boyish charm for days, a lively mop top, and a golden throat that can toss off his character’s ardent phrases with poet’s ease.”
– D.L. Groover, Houston Press

Cavaradossi – Tosca / LoftOpera 2016

“Tenor Dane Suarez as Cavaradossi displayed a handsome, full voice. His is a warm and robust tenore spinto. Suarez’s Recondita armonia in Act I was beautiful, soaring, and moving. He brought down the house (and moved me to tears) with E lucevan le stelle in Act III, rendering the magic of the pure earth-shaking lyricism of a man deeply in love about to die.”
– Lei & Lui, Allegri con Fuoco

Flaminio - L'amore dei tre re / Sarasota Opera 2017

“In the key tenor role of Archibaldo’s slave, Flaminio, Studio Artist Dane Suarez is strong and appropriately deferential.”
– Richard Storm, Herald-Tribune

“The major comprimario role is that of Flaminio, Archibaldo’s Alturan servant, nicely performed by Sarasota Opera Studio artist, Illinois tenor Dane Suarez.”
– Opera Warhorses

Dane Suarez offers a fine performance as the King’s “eyes”.”
– Carolan Trbovich, Broadway World

“Smaller roles were handled with the same beauty and excellence as the leads by Dane Suarez (Flaminio)[…]”
– June LeBell, Your Observer

Pedrillo – Die Entführung aus dem Serail / Opera North 2015

“It’s the servants who have all the fun, and this opera is no exception. Dane Suarez used his able tenor with warmth and wit as Pedrillo…”
