"Perhaps the most captivating voice of all might have been that of the Baryton-Martin character, voiced by Micah Schroeder. From his entry as a kind of Master of Cosmic Ceremonies, enunciating perfectly every syllable of Vivier’s fantasy language, he served as ecstatic guide for Agni, her devoted spirits and for the audience. Schroeder was mesmerizing at all times, calling out, cajoling, even hypnotizing in his supremely executed and smooth-as-glass lyrical contours, rendering everything as though improvised. He is a superb actor and his command of pseudo-languages was equally impressive. He had you believing that he was fluent in Czech and Japanese when in fact he was singing/speaking neither. He sold made-up words to us with aplomb and convinced us that these dialects were something meta-linguistic — a cosmic language that only Agni’s spirits could speak way off in the beyond somewhere." - Stephen Bonfield, The National Post/The Calgary Herald, 2017

"Micah Schroeder was a full-voiced and exuberant Harlekin - Dawn Martens, Opera Canada, 2019

"Rattling off Mercutio's French language tongue twister Mab la reine des mensonges from Gounod's Roméo et Juliette, Micah Schroeder showed presence and a nicely honed sense of French Style..." - David Duke, The Vancouver Sun, 2014


"Micah Schroeder demonstrated a nice awareness of style and clearly grappled the Count Almaviva's inner psychology. He became increasingly angry and frustrated, leading up to a moving 'Contessa perdono'..." - Elizabeth Paterson,  Review Vancouver, 2015
